Past to Present


In 1912 under the leadership of Elder Enoch Ross, Sr. the first church structure was better known as a Brush Arbor(often dialectically called Bush Harbor). Brush Arbor was a temporary structure which consisted of tree limbs bound together and covered with brush and bushes. sometimes, chicken wire was used to help hold the structure together. the first church was located outside the city limits of Terrell and was named Griffin League Church.

 

In 1949 while under the leadership of Elder C.H.Crosby, the church the journeyed to 1120 S Medora street, Terrell, Texas, (while the new structure was under construction at 1213 S. Medora St.) inside the city limits and was renamed Terrell No.3 Church of God in Christ, in 1952 the church relocated to 1213 Medora St.

 

In 1960 Supt. Robert Hill became the pastor and renamed the church "Phagan Addition" named after the subdivision. Due to the growth in membership a new structure was built in 1974 just north of the previous construction at 1213 S. Medora. The facility as paid in full by 1984, In 1988 a fellowship Hall was added.

 

 

 

In 2010 under the leadership of Elder Reginald Miller, Sr. the church was renamed, "Chosen Generation" based on 1 Peter 2:9; " But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light".
