Houston’s First Baptist Church has an amazing legacy of missions involvement. We are attempting to carry on that legacy through Student Missions. We believe that few things stir the heart of a teenager like missions. Our desire is to provide mission opportunities that allow our students to grow and develop in ministry skills and a heart for missions.
We achieve this through 4 different experiences for specific ages.
Entering 6th & 7th graders have Camp Intersect a 4 day camp that introduces these ages to The HUB Student Ministries and prepares them for out-of-state missions.
Rush Week, our major trip, is a camp/mission trip hybrid. Students entering 7th grade - recent Grads have the opportunity to spend half their day serving a local church in the city we are located and the other half spend time in worship, Bible teaching, and having tons of fun!
Rushmore is our newest addition to this missional plan. Rushmore takes students currently in 10th-12th grade (the trip is not in the summer but over Spring Break) to a city to challenge the things they have learned at Rush Week and apply them to a very different environment. Rushmore is still a hybrid trip between camp & missions but it is much more a mission trip than a camp.
Our final piece of this missional plan is our International Trip. Students who are entering 12th grade-recent Grads will have the opportunity to board a plane and help others in a country not our own. Locations may vary but Houston's First's Mission 1:8 cities are always an option.
If your student is interested in any of these opportunities and you have questions please contact Justin Holcomb - Student Minister.
