People

Every week a group of dedicated volunteers, leaders and community partners come together around a common purpose.

Purpose

The single focus of Hope Beyond Bridges is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to those hurting, hungry & homeless under bridges, in camps and/or along the streets and highways of Houston, Harris & Montgomery counties. Our philosophy is based on this principal: They don’t care what you know, until they know you care.

Priorities

1. Meaningful Relationships

Our desire is to become friends with the homeless we serve, deep lasting relationships where we earn their trust over time (sometimes years). With trust and love, we are able to share the gospel of Jesus. Each week before we heard out to serve, we pray specifically for each of us to embrace the heart of Christ, to see each one as God himself see them and loves them just as He sees and loves us in the midst of our mess.

2. Community Partnerships

We want to partner with other ministries, agencies and organization to connect the homeless with available resources when they decide to transition off the streets. We are not an ID ministry, medical or dental ministry, eye glasses ministry, jobs ministry, transportation ministry, detox or residential treatment facility; however, we have valuable relationships with such organizations.

3. Ministry Outreach

Currently, we serve each Saturday along several freeways in Houston around 610 loop and extend out into the suburbs. If you think about any time a road goes under a freeway, it is a potential stop for Hope Beyond Bridges. We provide a hot, nutritious meal, drink and hygiene kit to everyone we encounter. They are given an opportunity to share with us prayer requests and needs request like clothes, shoes, blankets or bug spray. If any of those items are available from donations in our storage locker, we will deliver to the them hopefully the next Saturday.

Expected Outcome

We expect to give HOPE to Harris County’s unsheltered homeless population, every Saturday. Please contact us if you have a desire to minister to the needs of the homeless locally in your area.

In 2008 the Gospel of Jesus Christ transformed my heart of judgement and disdain for the homeless to compassion, empathy and love.
