TEXAS BAPTIST MEN
The mission of the Texas Baptist Men is to assist Texas Baptist Churches as they lead men into a relationship with Jesus Christ that will thrust them and their families into a lifestyle of missions and ministry that fulfills the Great Commission. Both men and women serve in the more than 17 ministries that TBM offers, Including disaster relief, builders, medical/dental, agricultural, and water purification. There are opportunities to serve locally, nationally, and internationally – for both skilled and unskilled volunteers. You might find yourself preparing food for the homeless in Dallas in a TBM mobile kitchen unit, ‘mudding-out’ homes in New Jersey following a hurricane, or building water filtration systems at an orphanage in Honduras. Being salt and light doesn’t necessarily require ‘volunteering’, either. The TBM outdoor ministry provides an opportunity for Christian men and women to network together for fellowship, and to share the message of Christ with individuals that do not have a personal relationship with Him.
Quilted Blessings Ministry is made up of a group of faithful Heights women who quilt blankets for those in need. This ministry began in 2014 because these women felt called to combine their love for quilting and their passion for serving others. So far, approximately 800 quilts have been made and given to those in need through various ministries around the world.
