Missions Ministry

About Us

The West Houston Church conducts three mission trips each year. We have traveled across the world to numerous countries, including the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, Honduras, Brazil, Panama, Guyana, Bolivia, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. We have constructed churches, schools, medical buildings and bakeries on past trips. We have typically also conducted medical and dental clinics in the construction locations. If we have the resources and the leadership, we also conduct vacation bible schools and evangelistic meetings.

 

The Lord has led mightily during the mission trips and all that attend are blessed. If you attend, you will have opportunities to not only help spread the Gospel via construction, medical/dental or vacation bible school, but you will have an opportunity to grow in your walk with Christ. Attending the mission trips will also create or strengthen relationships with your church family.

 

We typically partner with Maranatha Volunteers International for our trips. Maranatha Volunteers International is a group dedicated to building structures for those in need and coordinates the building supplies and other logistics associated with the building. Our volunteers supply the labor and pay for some of the construction costs. You can find out more about Maranatha at www.maranatha.org.

 

Our trips typically last for around 10 days. The trips normally include six days of construction, worship in the completed structure and then an excursion to somewhere in the country for some rest and relaxation. Costs for the trip will vary from year to year and are tax deductible.
