There are many great organizations where you can give financially in support of the relief efforts in Houston. We celebrate all of the work that these amazing organizations are doing in our world. We have a personal relationship with a church in the city of Houston that we would like to highlight.

Bayou City Fellowship, Derek’s former church in Houston, has created a direct way to donate to the relief efforts. 100% of your giving will go directly to the communities of Houston as they begin the arduous challenge of cleaning up and rebuilding.

Our Mission Team is busy formulating plans for several trips to the Houston area in October. We are partnering with Bayou City Fellowship Church’s efforts to help the city of Houston with clean up. We know that initially most of the work will be manual labor such as removing sheet rock and debris. No specific skills will be needed, just able bodies willing to work and help.

We have scheduled three trips to Houston in October: Oct 7 – Oct 13, Oct 14 – Oct 20, and Oct 21 – Oct 27.  We will leave Kingsport on a Saturday. Spend the night in a hotel on the road and arrive in Texas on Sunday evening. Our work days in Houston will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Leaving Texas early on Thursday morning, we will spend the night in a hotel on the way back, arriving in Kingsport on Friday afternoon.

The cost of the trip is $300. This is to facilitate travel expenses, meals and lodging while in Houston.   Each trip participant will be responsible for their food on the travel days (Saturday, Sunday, Thursday and Friday). You must be 18 years or older to participate. If you are interested in knowing more, please contact Jake Godsey at

We hope you will join us as we strive to make a difference in the Houston community.

Join us in continuing to pray for all of the individuals impacted by the flooding. There is power in praying together. We encourage you to submit your prayers for the people of Houston on our website. We would love to stand in agreement with you.
