About Us

Working together in fellowship, sharing the Good News and participating in missions worldwide.


Bosque Baptist Association is comprised of twenty Baptist Churches located in Bosque County, Texas. We are mostly rural churches, ministering to a changing population. Like much of the Texas' rural churches, 75% of our churches are pastored by bi-vocational ministers.

The association's office is located at 106 S. Ave. G, Clifton, Texas, 76634.

Jim Houser has been the Director of Missions for the association since June 2016.He and his wife Molly, have partnered in their ministries through the years, and continue to do so with the association. We were missionaries in Kenya and Tanzania for 29 years after  After that time, we served on the staff at Shiloh Terrace Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas as their Minister of Missions for six years. We moved to Waco where our ministry became student centered at Baylor University. Jim taught Swahili while Molly touched the students lives in areas of hospitality and counseling. We were involved in this ministry for nineteen years, while also pastoring churches in the area.
