The very scant and meager records that tell about Disciples work among the Mexican‐Texans point to San Antonio as the site for the first mission, which met for the first time in 1899. However, when reviewing the history of these early Disciples Mexican‐Texan missions, a very significant practice stands out. In all the new missions, the Disciples ministers assigned to be pastors were from Mexico. This dependence upon Mexico to provide the leadership for Disciples churches in Texas proved to be highly detrimental with long‐lasting negative results. An examination of the missionary writings from this period reveals a sense that the Mexican Disciples in Texas were not like the Euro‐American Disciples, not really American and not really Protestant.
