Choose Your Track

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:

  • 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 Charlotte, Jonathan or Caroline to see if you have a current one on file with the church.

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.

Ministry Site Track

July 10–13, 2017

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 11–17
  • Free for 10 and Under

Neighborhood Track

July 10–13, 2017

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.

    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!
