Houston Project is more than a one-week mission trip. It is a full on intensive training and prayer movement. We want to see our city and your students transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to invest and equip the future generation of emerging leaders by teaching them what it means to live missional lives that break in the Kingdom of God. That is why we give students the opportunity move from hearing about The Kingdom to experiencing The Kingdom. Students will be trained to hear the "gentle whisper" everywhere they go from refugee apartment complexes to meeting strangers on the street. All aimed to provide restoration and hope to people deemed as broken and hopeless.
This is why we say this is more than a trip. It is a movement.
Welcome to the Houston Project.
Cost – $175/person includes:
Smaller teams and individuals could merge with others in order to assist with transportation and ministry needs.
Inner-city mission projects in Houston began with a vision to field train the next generation of emerging leaders in evangelism and discipleship through missions. In July of 1992, 20 students embarked on a missionary journey to inner-city Houston to be the first to participate in this field-training endeavor. Over the past 15 years, the Lord has continued to expand and develop these projects.
Currently, hundreds of students participate in the Houston Project each July, and hundreds more participate at various times throughout the year through the venues of Vacation Bible Schools, Service Projects, Prayer Walking, Homeless Ministry, Personal Discipleship, and more.
A typical day at Houston Project looks like students waking up to breakfast, as the leaders are headed to their morning meeting to plan, prepare and pray for the day ahead. After breakfast students head into their morning session, a time of worship and teaching. After that time,lunch will be provided and churches will depart for their ministry for the day, with each day looking different. Churches will arrive back at Houston's First with time to have dinner and a shower before their evening session. Directly after the evening session, leaders will have a designated small group time with their students intended to facilitate discussion about the day. Each night the interns will host their world famous dodgeball tournament. Lights out at 11 pm.
