February Member Spotlight: Northside Baptist Church

Northside Baptist Church had its beginnings in July 1983 in the home of Alton and Janie Farris. It was a church start effort by three local Baptist congregations. The church met there for a few weeks.
There was a search for property in the FM 980 area. Interestingly, a small subdivision had been established by Mr. Weldon Burns of Conroe. The lot on the southwestern corner of the property was reserved by Mr. Burns, who thought someday there might be a church in the area. The steering committee for the new work was not aware of the property, and neither was Mr. Burns aware of the church start. The two came together through Tryon-Evergreen Baptist Association, and the new church start had a place to call home.
