Mildred McWhorter's name is legendary with inner city ministry in the United States. In many ways, Mildred was a trailblazer who led the modern Church into oppressed areas of Houston's inner city. Mildred, along with countless volunteers, built the current Mission Centers of Houston with much love and hard work. When Mildred retired in 1991, it was known that her legacy would continue for years to come.
In 1998, the well-used 3-story house at Gano Mission Center had served it's life and was condemned by the city of Houston. In an effort to maintain the property as a lighthouse for ministry, the board of directors vowed to build a new building to ultimately house both staff offices and student missionaries but also to honor the life and ministry of Mildred McWhorter. After many years of fundraising and planning, the Mildred McWhorter Missionary Building was opened in May, 2007. Mildred was in attendance for the historic event.
Today, the Mildred McWhorter Missionary Building houses up to 36 volunteer missionaries and staff. In additional the administrative staff of MCH is located on the first floor of the building.
