We exist to equip people to know and follow Christ.
Christ Church has a long and rich history.
Rev. Snowden stirred the parish into activity by sheer “force of personality.” Raising capital and overseeing construction of the new church building during both the Great War and the Spanish Flu epidemic, on October 6, 1918, the first sermon was preached in the new nave in downtown Tyler. On January 15-16, 1919, Christ Church hosted the 70th Annual Diocesan Council.
In 2011, Christ Church began a new ministry to students at the University of Texas at Tyler and other area schools. Our college minister meets weekly with area university students to support and spiritually equip them as they walk with the Lord through their college years.
In 2013, Christ Church began to develop a new ministry to people who live in south Tyler. In partnership with the Diocese of Texas, we purchased and developed twenty-six acres, establishing the Christ Church South Campus, a complement and extension of our historic ministry based in downtown Tyler. Since 2016, Christ Church has ministered to the community at and through both our downtown campus and Christ Church South.
