Reverend to make 50-mile trek with hopes of building a new church in La Marque

LA MARQUE — The Rev. Antonio Smith will take to the streets at 4 a.m. Dec. 7 on a 50-mile walk from Houston Baptist University to the site he’d like to become his future church site in La Marque. He’ll be supported by the members of his Church For The Unchurched.

“We have people of different races, age groups and backgrounds participating in this walk, and it is truly a reflection of who we are as a church,” said Tempestt Smith, the church’s executive assistant. “We’re not just a black church or a church for young adults. We really do work hard in living up to our mission statement: Everyone belongs. Once we purchase the property, I believe we will be able to reach more people and be able to fit more people. The building has over 13 offices and classrooms, which is perfect for our thriving children’s ministry.”
