Welcome to Advent Houston

Our mission is to embrace, embody, and extend the grace of Jesus Christ in Texas Medical Center, Rice University, and the Greater West University.
We're excited for you to join us!

Our Ministry

Advent Presbyterian Church (Advent Houston) is committed to gathering together a group of Christians who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ. We desire to embody and extend the Gospel to three key communities within the Houston area:

The Texas Medical Center

Mentor healthcare students and trainees, care for the hospitalized and their families, and welcome the medical sojourner. 

Rice University

Support student ministry, be a faithful Christian presence to the campus, and engage the academic world of thought in Houston through intentional outreach 

Greater West University

Extend the gospel to non-Christians and the unchurched in the Greater West University area through community support and outreach initiatives.

Meet Our Pastor

Taylor grew up in Houston, Texas in a family of doctors. Taylor met his wife, Julianna, at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and they were married in 2006. After working for Reformed University Fellowship at Davidson College in North Carolina, they moved to Austin, Texas. While there, Julianna completed a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at the University of Texas, and Taylor worked for All Saints Presbyterian Church and then Redeemer Seminary, where he completed his M.Div. They moved back to Houston with their children in 2015 when Taylor accepted a call as an Assistant Pastor at Christ the King Presbyterian Church. Taylor and Julianna have been praying about this call to plant a church that ministers to the medical, academic, and neighborhood communities of the Texas Medical Center. And they began working on this church plant in 2021.
