The Pillars Magazine
is the news magazine of Houston Baptist University.
Formerly known as the HBU News
, the magazine has an interesting and vital history. Originally, it was a newsletter that informed readers on all the events, faculty, and alumni of our younger university, which at the time was known as Houston Baptist College. God, in His graciousness, has mightily blessed year after year.

, which was unanimously approved by our Board of Trustees on February 19, 2008. This missional vision statement is so essential to who we are and the growth steps ahead that it seemed appropriate to adopt the new name, “The Pillars
HBU also offers a monthly e-newsletter called Advancing the Vision
. Subscribe to The Pillars and Advancing the Vision.
