About

Founded in 1860, the Church of the Good Shepherd is a historic downtown church in Corpus Christi, Texas that continues to impact its community with Christ’s love and compassion. We are a multigenerational congregation who is passionate about worshipping God in Christ, growing in our knowledge of Him through study and prayer, and seeking to live out our faith by serving others. We are a welcoming community of all ages, races, and backgrounds. The Church of the Good Shepherd is a congregation that strongly believes God’s love is experienced through fellowship and being family to each other, then sharing that love with the surrounding world.

One especially important outreach of the Church of the Good Shepherd is St. James Episcopal School, with which we share our campus and facilities. Our partnership with the Pre-K through 8th Grade school has shaped Christian leaders of this community since 1946, and we continue to see God working in these beautiful children and families every day of the week.

We have several Sunday worship services from which to choose, each with a different feel and tempo. For spiritual growth, we offer a coordinated Christian Formation program for all ages. In addition to Sunday programs, the Church of the Good Shepherd also offers several weekday services and classes, to meet a variety of schedules and interests. There are many ways for people to share in the mission and ministries of the Church of the Good Shepherd. We need lots of hands and hearts to share Christ’s love and invite you to explore your gifts and your talents in the context of our family. Come join us!
