Episcopal Diocese of West Texas Chapter


The Order of the Daughters of the King® is an order for women who are communicants of The Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in communion with it. Our membership currently includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.

The mission of this order is the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism.

As Daughters of the King, we are women of courage who have made a commitment to serve God our King. We wear crosses as an outward and visible sign that we cannot live a day without Christ in our lives. We see our Order as a community of nurturing women, accepting all people, bridging differences and cherishing traditions.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision is to encourage and enable all to be reflections of God's love, reaching out through prayer, service and evangelism to spread His Kingdom. To get more information about The Order of the Daughters of the King® or how to start a chapter in your congregation, call or e-mail Kim Najera, Diocesan President, at 210-690-7477 or

Diocesan President's Verse for Term - Galations 3:26 - 29 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (NIV).
