Sharing Jesus Across Town and Across the Street

Key Dates

How to Register

  • Complete the Houston 1:8 registration form (for a specific ministry site or the Neighborhood Track)
  • Complete a Background Check
    • Background checks are good for five years. Contact Jen or Skyler to see if you have a current one on file with the church.

Ministry Site Track — Partner with smaller local churches to reach their communities through VBS and other activities and to advocate for what they provide people year-round.

Prayer Track — Travel to the different ministry sites, as well as our 8 different ministry partners, and pray over the sites and people at the sites.

Backyard Kids' Club — Host a block party, a cookout, a backyard movie night or your own way of being intentional about connecting with people God has placed around you.

Ministry Site Track

July 9–12, 2018

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.

  • $35 for Adults 18+
  • $25 for Single Parents and College Students
  • Free for 17 and Under

Deadline to register and fill out your background check is by end of day June 25th.

After Houston 1:8

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!
