Rebuilding Houston 2018

Last summer, Hurricane Harvey devastated the greater Houston area, dumping as much as 40 inches of rain on the area and causing tremendous flooding. Since that time, groups have been working to help with immediate relief efforts like food, water and medical supplies as well as the daunting task of home repair. Currently the mission work is in the rebuilding stage. We will be partnering with Experience Mission and a local church to connect with local residents to help them rebuild their lives in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. A significant portion of our work will be helping to rebuild homes in the Houston area.

How You Can Help

You may not be going to Houston this summer physically, but that doesn't mean you can't be a part of the mission! There are two ways you can get involved right now.


First, you can support the team financially. Each member of the team has to raise $975 to cover their trip. You can give to the trip by clicking here. Specify the amount you wish to give on the "Short Term Missions" line. If you would like to give to a particular individual going on the trip, simply write their name in the "Special Instructions" box on the giving page.


Second, you can support the team in prayer. Pray for us as we prepare that our hearts would be soft to how God wants to use us. Pray for the churches in Houston as they are showing the love of Jesus in tangible ways. And pray that above all we would make Jesus known before, during, and after this trip. Here are some specific requests our team is asking you to lift up in prayer:

  • For strength in every way while we are there - physical, spiritual, emotional
  • For team growth and unity as we prepare and as we serve
  • That God would be glorified through the work that we do
  • For opportunities to show and share Jesus while we serve others
  • For opportunities to connect with and invest in the people of Houston
  • That we would enjoy our work
  • For protection, both physical and spiritual

Our Team

We have a team of 41 individuals from Riverwood headed to Houston to rebuild the homes and lives that were devastated by the storm. Please pray for us, as a team and as individuals, that God would use us to make Jesus great as we serve the people and the church in Houston.
