I always thought it stood for "The Clown Jester". That's what I've always called it.

Baptist Temple was a great church then, although we went to Oak Forest. It was very respected and this thread really brought back some memories.
Coincidentally, my first home was on Saxon Dr. (1700 block). That was in the 50s. My sister went to the little school (Stephens?).

Did you know that Patrick Swayze grew up in Oak Forest?

alot of people grew up in areas you would not expect them to these days...some are ashamed and some aren't...

I had to laugh when a caucasian lady told me she grew up in Yellowstone off of Scott...but that was common then but so many of them are ashamed of their past..

North Forest wasn't that North Forest we know today

Huhns was called to be the church's first pastor. The congregation continued to meet in this space for the next five years.

[LEFT]Then in 1911, Baptist Temple began work on its first building at the corner of 20th and Rutland Streets, land which had been donated by the Houston Heights Company. This is where the church has been located ever since.

[/LEFT]

In 1927, T.C. Jester became the church's fourth pastor. Dr. Jester was recognized as a leader in his church, in his denomination, and in civic affairs. Under his leadership, the Baptist Temple became one of the leading churches in Houston, and most of our present church buildings were either built or remodeled during his tenure.
Great info, thanks!
