The Marker was first dedicated in 2000 at the church’s then location as Presbyterian Church of the Covenant at 4500 Jefferson Drive in Port Arthur.

Pastor Rick Shreve noted the importance of honoring and understanding the past in order to move successfully into the future, reminding that God was there then and is here now.

The church moved to it current Nederland location in 2010.
