Houston's First family members from Cypress Campus serving as Houston 1:8 missionaries can choose from one of two options for the week — Ministry Site Track or Neighborhood Track.
To fully register for Houston 1:8, you must:
Ministry Site Track — Partner with local church leaders at locations around Houston as we host VBS, youth events, adult Bible studies and other activities throughout the week.
Neighborhood Track — Reach out to your neighbors, make connections, and share the Good News.
Our win for the Ministry Site Track is to equip local churches and leaders with the tools they need to minister to the people God brings them. In the past, Houston’s First led VBS and other activities for churches. Now, we want to serve alongside them and equip them to lead on their own.
If you’ve ever served at a Houston 1:8 ministry site, this year will look like what you’ve done before. Local church leaders will join in on the planning phase with our missionaries and be encouraged to lead during the week as much as possible — equipping them to grow their ministry.
Find the ministry site where you want to serve and register at the link provided. You may want to choose a site along with your Life Bible Study, or one that you can get to easily from work or home each evening. Space at some ministry sites is limited, so register soon before they fill up!
Mansions at Hastings Green — Register
11950 FM 1960 Rd. West, Houston, TX 77065
Missionaries will serve in a local affordable living community through telling Christ’s story, Vacation Bible School, adult ministry, prayer and more.
H1:8 Sports Camp — Register
Smith Middle School, 10300 Warner Smith Blvd, Cypress, TX 77433
Missionaries will share the love of Christ with the community through sports ministry, using sports as a venue to tell Christ’s story. There are critical opportunities in prayer, evangelism and service.
Our win for the Neighborhood Track is to equip and encourage Houston’s First members to share the love and truth of Jesus in their neighborhoods. Rather than going to a ministry site, you will stay and minister to the people God has placed around you.
Cost: $15 per Household (includes t-shirts and resource pack)
Resource packet will be made available to each household at your campus.
Your Neighborhood — Register
Throughout our city
Deadline to register and fill out your background check is by end of day June 25th.
The week of Houston 1:8 is meant to be the start (or a continuation) of relationships with your neighbors. When the week is over, the ministry continues! Keep in contact with the people you meet during the week, invite others over for dinner or coffee, invite people to church — and continue to pray for your neighborhood!
Your primary Houston 1:8 contact for Cypress Campus is Susan Newman. You can reach him directly by using this form or send emails to Susan.Newman@HoustonsFirst.org
