The Bible speaks of the church having favor with all of the community (Acts 2:47). Outreach ministry is a Kingdom-focused mandate; Jesus said “…I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me….‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ (Matthew 25:35-36, 40).

Two Types of Outreaches

Outreach ministry is important to us at The R.O.C.K. and is a part of our desire to reach our city for Christ by providing Kingdom-minded love and compassion in the form of assistance and support. We provide two types of outreach – enablement and empowerment.

Enablement Outreach

This type of outreach provides urgent or immediate assistance to the needs of people within our community.

Empowerment Outreach

This type of outreach provides training and support that will assist people in maximizing their individual potential in life.
Take a look at our enablement and empowerment outreach initiatives below!

Enablement Outreach Initiatives

Disaster Relief

Life and circumstances, due to natural disaster, can bring a world of calamity. And when it hits, we, at The R.O.C.K. will certainly to do our part. When natural disaster has hit the Houston area such as Hurricane Katrina, The R.O.C.K. served as a dormitory and relief center. During Hurricane Harvey, we served as a food and supply distribution center, caring for thousands of hurting people who have suffered tremendous loss. The R.O.C.K. understands our role as a local church during times of hardship and tragedy, and we stand with our community and the greater Houston area as a contributing partner that will continue the winning spirit of our city.

Back to School Bash

At The R.O.C.K., it is very important to us that any child that passes through our care is set up for academic success. Every year, at the close of the summer, we hold our annual Back to School Bash. This free event is a time for the kids to come out and enjoy some festivities, and stock up on school supplies for the coming year. We provide them with backpacks, folders, notebooks, writing utensils, and opportunities to win specialty prizes from our participating vendors.


The R.O.C.K. partners with the Houston Food Bank and occasionally provides food relief during difficult seasons of life for those who are in lack and need food support. The R.O.C.K. helps to provide food relief for thousands and thanks to Houston Food bank for making it possible to serve our community.


Every year, close to Thanksgiving, The R.O.C.K. gives away free food and groceries including turkeys, and other holiday staples to families that are unable to afford.
