    Our new sanctuary was opened in 2001 and will seat approximately 400.  The exterior of the new sanctuary features an all limestone façade common to the Texas Hill Country, and the bright interior of the building provides a state of the art communication technology. Our old sanctuary remains as an all-purpose room. Our property has offices, Sunday school rooms, a choir practice room as well as a smaller fellowship hall. We also own a house that sits on our property that houses a para-church ministry. Zion’s daycare facility is independent of our church building and provides ministry to children of the community. We average 75 children ages 6 weeks to pre-kindergarten. The ministry employs a director, and assistant director and about 16-18 staff.

    The church staff includes a full time secretary, volunteer coordinator and youth leader, custodians, part time music and worship leader, choir director, organists, praise team leader and financial secretary.

    Kerrville, Texas sits in the midst of the Texas Hill Country in the beautiful Guadalupe River valley. It is about one hour west of San Antonio and 2 hours west of Austin. Kerrville has a nationally recognized medical hospital and several elder care facilities.
