St. John the Divine is leading the way in building long-term sustainable relationships in partner communities throughout Houston. They responded to hurricane Harvey by answering the call to become a church beyond their building, serving their own parish and those affiliated with partner churches and their communities. As they move into the recovery phase, St. John the Divine is focused on building relationships with other organizations, including World Vision, Agape Development in Houston’s Third Ward, and Faith Memorial Baptist Church in Houston’s Fifth Ward. They are broadening their reach by opening the doors of the church to house mission teams of up to 30 people who have a heart to serve. Led2Serve is the organizing and coordinating arm of Harvey Relief Missions, as teams from all over the country gather in Houston to stay and serve others ~ together.
Please note we can house teams, help feed teams, organize projects, or do all 3! If you are looking for an entire mission experience, or, you simply need a convenient place to stay while serving in Houston, please inquire.
