NOTE: All mission trips are on hold due to the coronavirus. Visit our "Coronavirus Updates" page here for more about how Houston's First is responding.
We encourage members of Houston’s First to participate in the worldwide missions movement. To make that possible, we have an established process for joining a mission team or project.
Once a decision has been made for you to join a specific team, you will receive an email from FOCUS Missions that provides you with a link to be on the team. This is where you will electronically sign waivers and complete your paperwork for your upcoming trip.
We encourage every person to own a passport. The passport cost and visa fees are not included in your team overall cost unless otherwise noted. You can apply to a team prior to securing a passport. If you own a passport, please review it to make sure you have plenty of blank pages (a minimum of 4-5 pages when traveling internationally with multiple stops). Also, verify the expiration date of your passport is six (6) months beyond the date of return to the United States.
If your trip leaves in eight (8) weeks or less and you have not applied for a new passport, please contact the Missions staff or team leader for information on how to expedite your passport.
All team meetings are required unless providentially hindered. Attendance at these will usually be on a Sunday following morning church worship services. These are led by the team leader.
Join Houston’s First and Legacy 685 as we travel to Guatemala City to come alongside our partner, ACH, as they host a Latin American conference for pastors, leaders, and workers in the field of orphan care. During this short-term mission trip, we will be available to pray with conference attendees. Many of them come to the conference burdened and weary, so our team of prayer partners will be there to pray for and encourage them so that they might be able to fully receive what God has for them that weekend. *Spanish speakers are preferred.
