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.
Neighborhood Track — 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.
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.
Deadline to register and fill out your background check is by end of day June 25th.
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!
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. Find out how many other Houston's First members might live in your same neighborhood and join them for outreach to your community!
Whether you host a block party, a cookout, a backyard movie night or your own idea, be intentional about connecting with 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. 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 The Loop Campus is Jen Lewis. You can reach him directly by using this form or send emails to Jen.Lewis@HoustonsFirst.org
