Houston is the 4th largest city in America and also one of the most diverse. More than 90 languages are spoken here. If Houston was an independent nation, it would rank as the world’s 30th largest economy. Yet, the need here is overwhelming. Almost 1 million people live below poverty and an estimated 80% of the population are without Christ.
Bayou City Fellowship is committed to using our resources, both spiritual and physical, for the good of the city of Houston. We do that by being mission-focused individuals, being strategic and intentional with the way we live in our own communities and work spaces, and by partnering with other mission organizations in the city.
International & Refugee Needs
Houston resettles more refugees than any other city in the United States, contributing to the fact that we are also the most diverse city in our nation. As a refugee comes into our city, we would love for the Church to be the first responders. We partner with great kingdom-focused organizations that help receive and welcome refugees as they transition from refugee to a valuable contributor to our growing and diverse city. There are multiple ways to get involved and at different levels through welcoming refugees, building relationship with internationals, and teaching ESL.
Houston is known as the one of the largest human trafficking hubs in the US. We have partnered with an alliance of churches in Houston through Freedom Church Alliance that partner with local trafficking organizations to help put an end to human trafficking in our city. Get involved by joining the Task Force.
