Apartment Churches

Apartment Church / Multi-Housing Churches provides an opportunity for Texas Baptists to minister to the ever-growing influx of new Texas residents. Whether economically disadvantaged or young professionals beginning employment in the state, this ministry opens the door for gospel conversations in apartment communities.

Bud's Texas Missions Story

Bud Houston is a Catalyst with Texas Baptists who trains, equips and provides opportunities for mission teams to take the gospel to residents in local apartments in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

“I coach apartment missionary teams that are sharing the gospel, making disciples and planting organic churches in apartment complexes,” Houston said. 

This past year saw God’s blessing through a young woman and her daughter. Yolande, originally from Cameroon, was a recent graduate of Dallas Baptist University and had a heart to reach her apartment community with the gospel.

Yolande prayed faithfully and began to share her faith with others in her complex. Thanksgiving and Christmas provided opportunities to partner with a local church to provide gatherings to celebrate the holidays and share the gospel with neighbors.

As a result, over 30 youth and adults professed faith in Jesus.

God had worked all year in this apartment complex, and the ministry team witnessed the seeds that were planted take root.
