Pastor Howard Devenport Jr:
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
Ephesians 3:21, “To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever.”
Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you find what you are looking for.
Let me tell you about what you will find here at Shiloh Community Church. Our people are growing and continue to be challenged to love God, study the Bible and walk in the Spirit. It is wonderful to see how God is using His Word to change people's lives.
Jesus said in Luke 18:1, “Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.”
In our world there is a lot of confusing information regarding the major questions of life. “Who is God? Why am I here on the earth? What does God want from me? What will happen after I die?” Have you ever asked these questions? Where does one go to find the answers? Our church is dedicated to carefully studying God's Word, the Bible, the only place where these questions can accurately be answered.
Jesus also said in Luke 11:9-10, “So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks the door will be opened.
I invite you to see what Shiloh Community Church is all about. You will find our folks to be friendly, our services to be worshipful and Christ-exalting, and our focus to be on pleasing God with every aspect of our lives. Our desire is that we would faithfully and obediently respond to God’s wonderful love demonstrated through the gift of salvation in Jesus Christ.
I hope to see you soon.
Pastor Howard Devenport Jr.
Reverend Shelton McPherson:
Have we finally discovered just how little of the fear of God we have operating in our lives today?
My advice to everyone is to Praise God, His mercy is always available without fail to the truly repentant heart. Therefore I am always glad to remind us that He is the God of tomorrow’s fresh plans, despite today’s mistake.
Reverend David Owens:
I was born in Beaumont, TX., married my wife Donna in 1974 and we have 3 children. On February 29, 1979 I preached my first sermon at Pleasant Green Baptist Church, under the leadership of James C. Franklin.
I continued to receive teaching from the ministries of Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Fred Price, and R.W. Shambach just to name a few. I also had the privilege of attending many campmeetings in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
We later moved to Houston, TX. in November of 1979 and fellowshipped at Lakewood Church under the leadership of Pastor John Osteen from 1979 to 1986. I was eventually led back to my roots in the Baptist faith, to St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of the late Pastor W.G. Wright. There I received my Ordination in July 1996.
In 2000 the Lord led me to Shiloh Community Church under the leadership of Pastor Howard Devenport, Jr.
MINSTER: Bernice Foy:
I, Bernice Foy, am a native of Houston and a mother of 3 wonderful children. I've been a child of God since my youth. Later in life I matured and began to develop a relationship with God. I have been a member of Shiloh Community Church for more than 33 years. I began serving as an usher and then became president of the senior usher board. I later developed the junior and intermediate ushers and remained president of all departments for 30 years. I have always known that I had another calling to answer to. In 1999 I confessed to the church that God called me to the one of His messengers. In 2003, I resigned from the usher department, but continued my position as teacher of the Women of Wisdom. All of my teaching and training began under the leadership of Pastor H. Devenport, Jr. After fasting and praying, the Holy Spirit gave me Hebrews 5:6 and Isaiah 61:1 to confirm my calling to the ministry. In 2005, I ac cepted my calling into the ministry. In January 2006, I delivered my first message from Matthew 5:11,12, "Who is Willing to Go?" For a victorious life, always remember Proverbs 3:5,6 - "5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
MINISTER: Meredith Banks:
I united with Shiloh as a young child in 1975. I joined the adult choir at the age of 8 where I have remained faithful for 31 years. As God began to prepare me to walk in His purpose, He spoke to me in a vision and explained His will for my life. He sent confirmation in many different ways and in April 2007, I acknowledged and accepted my call to minister the Word of God. My inaugural message was given on June 3, 2007. I am truly blessed and thankful for the love and support of my husband and three sons. I give God all the praise for what He's done in my life and for all that is yet to come. My favorite scripture of choice is Proverbs 3:6, "In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths."
I've been running from God a long time, but now the time has come to move forward and do the lord's will. I have confessed my calling to the ministry and accepted God's calling on my life to do his blessed will In my first sermon I talked about "Now Is The Time". The time has come for you lift him up and praise him, tomorrow is not promised. It's time to give God all the glory, thank God for the many blessings, he has given you a new day and new beginnings. God is forgiving and merciful. I want everyone to know he is good and always on time. You must have Hope, Faith in God, Love the brotheren and believe that with God all things are possible.
Reverend Davis is from Ada Taylor LA. He loves his family! He enjoys being a husband, farther, and grandfather. He enjoys sharing his love of Jesus with his grandchildren. He is their biggest fan. He celebrates even more the fact they all share the Christian faith in Jesus our Savior.
At the age of 25 the Holy Spirit lead him to Bible Way Holiness Church under the leadership of Bishop John l. Parker. Where He was taught by the Holy Spirit how to pray and praise the Lord, and the importance of having a relationship with Christ.
At the age of 35 he was lead to New Friendship Baptist church under the leadership of Pastor Willie Banks. He has been blessed with the gift of laying hands on the sick, the oppressed, and the lost.
Thank God for His Son Jesus for coming into my life and saving me.
When Rev Willie Banks past away the Holy Spirit lead Rev. Davis to Shiloh Community Church where Pastor Howard Davenport Jr. has blessed him thru wisdom and teachings.
Reverend E.C. Moore
A native Houstonian, is currently pursuing his Biblical Certification for Counseling through the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors (NANC). Though he was first called to ministry in 1995 at the young age of 15, he finally accepted God’s calling to a Pastoral role in 2007. Attending Prairie View A&M University allowed him the opportunity to develop strong leadership skills and prepared him for a thriving career in the Financial Industry. He is pursuing his Master of Ministry Studies degree from Grace Theological Seminary in Winnona Lake, IN. Becoming a minister, let alone a Community Leader, was not a part of Rev. Moore’s plan for his life, but he is so thankful that he finally yielded to God’s plan. He’s both humbled and grateful that God has blessed him with a son and daughter.
