About

Who is the STX District?

The South Texas District is part of the United Pentecostal Church International. In September 2002 the General Board of the UPCI approved the formation of the district. The district is divided into 8 sections. We began our first year of operations with 160 churches and daughter works and 330 ministers. We currently have a total of 310 churches and daughter works and 471 ministers spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
