The HAPC has grown to over 300 plus senior pastors in the Houston area as well as assisted in developing Pastor Councils in Austin, Beaumont, Sacramento, Virginia Beach, San Antonio, El Paso and other cities around the nation that are organizing, subsequently birthing the identity of the U. S. Pastor Council (USPC) and Texas Pastor Council (TXPC) to connect those teams of pastors.
