Loving Houston began out of a belief that Christians are called to more than just church on Sundays. We are called to be out in our communities, loving our neighbors as our Heavenly Father first loved us.
Loving Houston builds relationships with school districts to learn how churches can serve in their neighborhood schools. We then reach out to local churches to let them know about partnership opportunities, and equip them to build long-term relationships with local schools from a posture of humility as we serve in Jesus’ name.
Why schools? Every challenge in our communities is also present within our local schools, challenges like poverty, hunger, homelessness, substance abuse, and broken families. Despite these overwhelming challenges, local educators and families have amazing dreams for their children. They just may not have everything they need to help those dreams come to fruition.
By coming alongside our local public schools, we have an opportunity to be salt and light in our communities, positively impacting the trajectory of children’s lives for generations to come. And everyone — from kids to retirees — can do something to help.
You don’t have to do it all. But you can mentor one child. You can encourage one teacher. You can empower one parent. And if each one of us committed to caring for one person in our local school with the love of Jesus, imagine what a difference it would make in our city.
There are 1,470 schools and 3,500 churches in the Greater Houston area. This means that every school can have a committed church partner caring for students, teachers, and families in a tangible way. Imagine the impact!
