The Brook supports local, regional and global mission efforts through prayer, financial support, and outreach projects. Our strategy is not only to adopt missionaries and comprehensively support their work, but we consider it part of our call as followers of Christ to each be On Mission in our daily lives.
Missions is not just something we do — it is a part of who we are.
CareNet Pregnancy Center of Northwest Houston
The Brook supports this important ministry that provides life-supporting assistance and counseling for pregnant women. We are grateful to have church members volunteering at CareNet.
CARES – Apartment Life Ministries
Apartment Life sends CARES teams to live onsite in apartment communities to build relationships, provide support and share the gospel. The Brook supports Steven and Vivian Thompson, members of The Brook, as they serve in Apartment Life.
CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) at LSU
CRU is an on-campus ministry to college students passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ. They’re a network of students and staff on thousands of college campuses in the US and around the world. We support Brett and Kim Marcos who work at LSU.
Fellowship Church of Freedman’s Town
Fellowship Church has a vision of bringing the life of Christ back into the historic 4th Ward area of Houston. They seek to reconnect the culture to Christ through serving the community. The Brook supports Pastor Pervis Hall and his congregation in this mission.
Innovative Mission Opportunities
It is our privilege to partner with IMO as they share Jesus with those who have never heard His name. Places like Nepal are being impacted as local pastors, evangelists, and missionaries are equipped to disciple new believers who then also become missionaries to the unreached.
International Cultural Exchange
ICX mobilizes and equips volunteers to build relationships with international students in the Lone Star College system. There are over 3000 students from 100 different countries. Typically, 70% of international students never even get invited into an American home, but we want to change that. ICX organizes events to bring internationals and volunteers together, to provide opportunities for relationships to be built and heart-level sharing to occur.
Shear Love International
Shear Love International is designed to educate and empower women by providing an education in hair design. Equipping women with vocational knowledge, financial training, and personal development will give them an opportunity to support their families in a dignified way.
Tomball Chamber of Commerce
The Brook Church volunteers to help the Tomball COC. This is a great organization
in our community and we seek to serve in support of them. Our volunteers assist at the annual Tomball Chamber golf tournament and the annual holiday parade.
Willow Creek Elementary School
The Brook Church loves on the teachers of our neighboring school in Tomball ISD. Simply in support of the great work that teachers and administrators do, we serve the staff and teachers of Willow Creek lunch.
Terry and Christina Cokenour (and their three daughters) serve through World Venture as church planting missionaries in Budapest, Hungary. Terry also teaches at the Bible Seminary.
