• Refugee work

    One of our continual prayers at LifeBridge is that God would allow us to see the world through His eyes -- moving us to action when we see a hurting or broken brother. Our work with the refugee community downtown has been a truly life-changing experience for us.

  • It's God's Money...

    At LifeBridge, we intentionally do without some of the things we'd enjoy for ourselves so that we are able to give more away. A full 50% of all offerings given are set aside for helping the poor, serving in our community, and starting new churches and schools. While that forces us to "live lean", it has opened the door for all sorts of amazing ministry that has truly transformed lives.

  • Jesus Sent Out 72

    Following Christ is risky, messy and sometimes dangerous. It means going into places you might not normally go, loving people you wouldn’t normally love and risking losing everything for the sake of Jesus Christ. This is the life that Jesus lived, and calls us to live.

  • Homeless ministry

    After years of working with the Montrose Street Reach downtown, our church has become much more active in recent days with a local ministry called Cy-Fair Helping Hands, which works with the homeless and "sheltered homeless" (living in hotels/motels) in the Cypress area. We look forward to a growing relationship with them as we serve God's people together

    Nepal Mission Work

    One of the truly exciting opportunities that God has entrusted to our church is the opportunity to have a very hands on involvment in a church planting venture in Nepal. Through ServLife International, we are actively partnering with around 50 indigenous church planters in Nepal to bring the Gospel to the most remote villages in that country. We also sent full time missionaries there to help establish a micro-finance program in some of the most impoverished villages in extremely remote areas of Nepal. This is literally "ends of the earth" ministry that we are humbled and privileged to be a part of.

Nepal Mission Trip – Worship

What do you see in the faces of these guys as they worship God? Passion, sincerity, longing…they are crying out to Jesus with all their heart. Everywhere we went during our mission trip to Nepal, that’s what we encountered. Whether it was the church planters at the Pastors’ conference, a single family worshipping outside their home, or a prayer meeting in one of the rural villages…when they sang and worshipped Jesus it was with PASSION. Almost every single one of them had previously been Hindu, so coming to faith in Christ had come with great sacrifice. It was not a decision they made lightly, but one that carried great conviction that Jesus truly is who he claimed to be.

I couldn’t help but compare that with the lackluster attitude that we often bring into worship here in America. Perhaps it is because faith is so easy and our sacrifices for faith so light, but I have found it very easy to slip into complacency as I worship God. My mind wanders onto other things, I mouth the words but my heart isn’t in it. How about you? It reminds me of the Bible verse where God laments about how people“come near me with their mouths and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” (Isaiah 29:13)

One of my prayers for our church (and for all Christians) is that we would develop a deep sense of longing and expectancy as we approach God, and that our hearts would cry out in worship to the one who gave everything for us. Thank you, my friends in Nepal, for serving as a living reminder of what worship is.
