About the Rio Texas Conference
The Mission of United Methodists of The Rio Texas Conference is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to reach out, in the name of God, to the people of South Texas in the name of Jesus Christ. Some of our churches are located in some of the fastest-growing areas of the country. Others are located in areas where people are struggling with issues of poverty, lack of affordable housing, and a loss of hope. We are committed to providing vital missions, vital congregations, and strong leaders to connect our churches to the people.
Our mission field spans South Texas. Our churches are in large cities and small towns from Austin to McAllen, from San Angelo to Victoria in vibrant cities, historic small towns and struggling communities.
