Sagemont Church, Houston – Origin:
The “Sagemont Story” originated in the heart and mind of God long before He began to reveal it to the pastor and the people of the First Baptist Church in Pasadena, Texas.
The year was 1966. Under the pastoral leadership of Dr. L.D. Morgan, this mission-minded congregation had established a new church in every section of their growing city. Their attention turned to a newly developing section of Southeast Houston called “Sagemont.” They purchased 5.46 acres of land and began construction of a new building. The total cost of the first project was $160,000.
The First Baptist Church immediately began to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit as to who would be invited to be the pastor of the soon-to-be-completed Sagemont Baptist Chapel. Their search took them outside of Sulphur Springs, Texas, to John D. Morgan, who was pastoring the Posey Baptist Church in that dairy community.
An East Texas county seat church had been talking to this young man and his wife, Beth, about coming to their well-established and strong church; but the Lord had other plans. After much prayer, the invitation was extended to Brother John to come and pastor this new mission – an invitation that he prayerfully accepted.
