Our Story

The Eastland Church of Christ has a very rich history. Many members of the Eastland congregation were pioneers of the first black congregations of the Church of Christ in Fort Worth. This group had its beginning in 1923 under the leadership of T. H. Merchant, on the north side of Fort Worth.

Charles E. Fulbright, Jr. became the congregation’s minister in August 2013, after serving in Memphis, Tennessee, at the South Germantown Road Church of Christ for seven-plus years. The congregation continues to serve with an ambitious Outreach Ministry to share the gospel with residents in the surrounding neighborhood, including the adoption of the A.M. Pate Elementary School, Weekend Backpacks, and the Taste of Eastland.

On Sunday, March 4, 2018, the congregation ordained its first group of three elders—Travis Grigsby Sr, George Neal and Andrew Simmons, and one deacon—Tracy Evans. The Eastland congregation continues to grow steadily, both numerically and spiritually. To God be the Glory!
