Oromo Evangelical Church
The Oromo Evangelical Church of Houston (OEC) has worshiped in Houston since 2007; it joined the NALC in 2011 and was incorporated in 2012. During these years it has reached out to the community around it under the mission statement: “Preaching the revealed Jesus Christ for all nations and making them disciples.”
The congregation seeks to spread the gospel by preaching the Word, teaching the Word, practicing what the Word teaches for daily life, and praying with the purpose and goal of making disciples of the Word.
The church has regular services, Sunday School, weekly prayer services, and goes door to door distributing the Word and getting acquainted, building relationships in the Oromo community and beyond. It hosts and presents conferences that focus on spreading and teaching the Word. It also sponsors music events, choir concerts and special activities.
It has received Mission Grants from the NALC and support from several nearby congregations. Its members also financially support its programs. OEC’s finances are administered through Joy Lutheran Church of Richmond, TX, its fiscal agent.
