Mission Trips

Where in the World is God Calling You to GO?

Thank you for considering a short-term mission trip with Houston's First. This is more than a trip! You will be a part of fulfilling the Great Commission by going and making disciples to the ends of the earth! A short-term trip can be the vehicle for a life-altering shift as the Holy Spirit gives you a perspective of the gospel and the world like you've never imagined. God will overwhelm your heart with compassion, open your eyes to spiritual needs, and leverage your calling and talents for the Kingdom of God in ways you never thought possible — all while making an eternal impact in the peoples of the world. Short-term trips also serve the vital role of encouraging and multiplying the work of Houston's First missions partners across the globe. Each trip has been prayed over and strategically selected.

Throughout scripture we see God's intentional work in redeeming a lost and broken world back to Himself. When we step out in faith to engage the unreached and the underserved, we follow the very heart of God. Thank you for taking this courageous step to follow God to the ends of the earth! Houston's First Mission Team is praying for you, that God would workin you and through you. And we are excited for you, because we know that you won't come back the same!
