Why We Serve
About 1000 Hills
Our Mission: To serve the poorest of the poor, in any community where God leads us to serve. Simply put, God leads us to His areas of need and we go to work seeking and gathering the most poverty-stricken people in that area.
This could mean we pursue people living homeless in the streets, struggling in generational poverty, or those who have lost everything in their addictions.
To serve poorest of the poor, no matter the why or how, no matter the circumstance... we are called to serve God's least of these.
"Instead, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. Then at the resurrection of the godly, God will reward you for inviting those who could not repay you." - Luke 14:13-14
How do we do it? What does it mean to "serve the poorest of the poor?"
We preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and serve meals with His Love twice a day at street churches in the Houston metropolitan area.
We serve the homeless population in and around downtown Houston, and also serve families living in extreme poverty in Third Ward. We provide daily church services that include all the "regular" service elements-- praise and worship, preaching God's Word and prayer. In addition we serve a meal at every service and meet the immediate and pressing needs of our congregations. We just do it all outdoors !!!
