There are service opportunities throughout the year where students can make a difference, stay tuned to gpch.students for when those pop up! The most consistent opportunity is the Second Saturday Serves throughout the year where we join adult members in our congregation to serve the local community. Some other opportunities you will find include serving on one of the Student Ministries' teams, helping with Children's ministries childcare and VBS events, and volunteering with other nearby schools and ministries throughout west Houston. Then, of course, we have annual mission trips...see below for more info!

High School— June 25-July 1, 2023

Our High School Students are partnering with Blueprint Ministries and are headed to San Antonio, TX! The trip will be held from June 25-July 1, 2023!

Blueprint Ministries seeks to repair homes and establish relationships with the community in San Antonio. While the work they do on the homes is important, they emphasize that nothing matters more than sharing the news of Jesus Christ to the people they serve.

Middle School — July 8-14, 2023

Our Middle School Students and leaders will be partnering with Praying Pelican Ministries as they serve our neighbors right here in Houston! The trip will be from July 8-14, 2023!  

Praying Pelican Missions seeks to serve communities around the globe by partnering churches of different denominations together, working as one global Church. We hope to serve the Houston community in a variety of ways during the week, from construction projects to sports ministry and more!

Registration for both trips is closed, and we are SO excited to go!

Contact Daniel Baudin or Liz Moran if you have any questions!

Who is Christopher Cole Knight?

Christopher Cole Knight was a young man with unstoppable faith and love for Christ and he lived to make that visible every day. Cole lived to serve and he invited others to do the same. He was truly a man with a mission.

The Cole Knight Missions Scholarship Fund was created as a tangible way to carry on Cole’s mission – to help pave the way for individuals who display that same servant heart and passion for serving God through serving others. Each year the Scholarship Fund helps scholarship recipients cover the cost of their participation in Grace Student Ministries mission trips and other mission opportunities throughout the year.

Congratulations to the 2023 scholarship recipients:

• Piper Barrow

• Aubrey Peoples

• Jonah Tritt
