Local Missions

Local missions are a vital part of Mobberly’s Engage10K strategy to reach 10,000 East Texas households for Christ by the end of 2020. The East Texas area has many local missions that minister to men, women, and children.  This includes abused women, homeless, families of people in jail, Family Services, unwed mothers, nursing homes, jail and prison ministry and more. When you begin to reach out to these ministries, God not only blesses you, but gives you numerous opportunities to share the gospel that provides peace and joy and the hope of heaven to those who need Jesus.  Consider the type of ministry that God is leading you to, then call the Serve office.  We are ready to connect you with a local mission allowing you to put feet to your faith by serving others in Jesus’ name.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.
Romans 1:16 (CSB)
