Welcome to SEARCH Houston

The “Bayou City” of Houston—the nation’s fourth-largest city—is known as an international hub for business and culture. In fact, it has been named the most diverse city in the country. SEARCH Houston began in 2002 in The Woodlands. In 2008, Paul Hicks of Sugar Land joined the staff, followed in 2018 by Bruce Matthews, and in 2022 Eric Vaughn of Katy. The SEARCH Houston team members are heavily involved in their communities. Paul is involved in the baseball community, having coached little league and high school and even serving as the team chaplain for the Sugar Land Skeeters minor league team. Bruce has coached both local youth and high school football, in addition to helping area offensive linemen prepare for the NFL combine. Eric spent 27 years as a personal trainer before joining staff. Looking for a welcoming place to ask questions, find answers, and have meaningful conversations? Connect with SEARCH Houston for more details about what’s happening in the community!
