Our Mission: Taking Jesus to people in need by extending help and hope.
At the heart of Mission Southside is a passion to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to people in need. We are stirred by this question: How will the hundreds of thousands of people in our community who may never set foot in our churches fall in love with Jesus? Through ongoing engagement opportunities on site at apartment complexes and neighborhoods, we look for opportunities to have meaningful conversations that can lead to spiritual conversations, which lead to finding people who are open to begin a Discovery Group (Bible Study) with family members and friends. Prayer is a central component of all that Mission Southside does, because it is only through the power of God that those who do not know and follow Christ will be reached for His kingdom.

Here are the ways you can partner with Mission Southside to extend HOPE to those in need: 
A Site Team is a group of 3 or more people that are intentionally focused on service and ministry in a specific apartment complex or neighborhood. Their role is to regularly spend time on that property and to care for and serve the people they meet – extending help and hope on a very personal level.

Backyard Bible Clubs  provide an opportunity for kids to clearly hear about the love of Jesus in a relational way It takes place as a week-long summer program on site and includes songs, games, activities, and Bible stories for children ages 3 and up. Follow-up clubs and after school “Huddles” take place at sites throughout the school year. Many children and youth begin to discover God’s great love for them as they participate in these fun and meaningful programs.

Using a discovery process, volunteers facilitate a simple Bible Study with people who are spiritually open, willing to meet, and ready to gather a small group of family or friends.  It is obedience focused, discovery based, and Scripture centered.  Each week, we ask 6 core questions, including “What does God say?” and “What will you do about it?”

Service and Discovery provides a place for spiritually interested teens (6th grade & up) to discover God and His plan for their lives through Discovery Bible Study and serving others in the context of Site Team relationships. It takes place during the school year on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, and includes planning and leading a monthly service in the community.

The desire of Mission Southside is to bathe everything we do in prayer. Prayer calls upon God to do what we cannot do. God wants to do exceedingly abundantly more than we could ever expect or imagine. Prayer says to God that our trust is in Him. If we pray according to His will then He promises to hear our prayer. The Bible makes it clear that using His people and His resources to meet the needs of those less fortunate are an important part of God’s will. Click here to receive the monthly prayer e-mail update.
