"Helping the Poor While Preaching the Gospel"

About Us

     The Jesus Centers are apart of Missions Inc., a non-profit, 501 (c)(3), tax-exempt organization since 1966, founded by Pastor Darrel "Dick" Severson.  We have been working with the poor and spiritually hungry since 1970.  We have been working in Houston, TX since 1982 providing shelter and Bible study for the homeless, witnessing on the streets, and helping others to develop a ministry. 

Although we are still actively helping people in our part of Houston and operate a small men's home, our main outreach since 2003 has been the Rio Grande Valley.   We believe that it is the heart of God not only to tell people the good news about his son, but also to help the the fatherless, the widows, the sojourner and the poor.  Our goal is to do that ourselves and to assist other ministries that are doing the same.

Right Now we are working with ministries in two different towns, Penitas, TX and Mission, TX, both of which are located about 7 miles from the Texas/Mexico border in Hidalgo County , the poorest area in Texas. We have been working with His Hands Ministries in Penitas for about 8 years now and have been working with Iglesia Evangelica Jesucristo es la Respuesta in Mission for about 2 years.  We support food pantries at both places and help with ongoing building projects and needs (His Hands not only operates a food pantry and distributes clothing and housewares but also helps to provide housing for the needy in their area).  We also have provided toys each Christmas for 100s of children.  To see more pictures please go to our photo album.
