When Jesus commanded his disciples to go into the world and preach the gospel, they started where they were: in their backyard with relationships they already had. As a result, the Gospel expanded from the influential city of Jerusalem to the world. In many ways, Houston is our Jerusalem. Being one of the most international cities in North America, the world has has come to us. The population of this city is growing at an incredible rate and is desperate to be leveraged for the sake of the Gospel. More than 40% of the people in Houston are unaffiliated with any Evangelical Church, with more than 500,000 people unreached within 15 miles of our location. Averaging 34 years of age, these young influencers and families are primed to hear the Good News of the Savior who died to set them free. We have been called to engage in the work that the Lord is already doing in them.
