Donate/Volunteer

Volunteer

We would not be able to accomplish what we do each week without our dedicated volunteers. Here are some ways that you can get involved:

Montrose Street Reach Child Care (Orientation Required)

  • Children’s meal. Each week we serve a full meal to the children in our care. Providing this meal is a great way to minister to these children. If you are interested in serving in this manner you will need to contact us in order to sign up for our rotating meal schedule.
  • Childcare Assistance. Every Wednesday we can have anywhere from five to twenty children in our care. We need volunteers who have experience caring for children and have a heart to serve.
  • Set up and tear down. Childcare set up runs from 6:00-6:30pm. We need volunteers to set up the children’s mats, gates, tables etc. Tear down time fluctuates, but will typically take place around 8:00-8:30pm.

Montrose Street Reach Volunteers (Orientation Required)

  • Clothing Distribution. Each week we have an area set up before the service for donated clothing. We need volunteers to assist in organizing and sorting the donated clothing pre-service, as well as monitoring and assisting in the distribution post-service.
  • Friendship Evangelism. This is a huge part of Street Church. We love to have volunteers spend time at Street Church getting to know our congregation, sharing a meal with them and swapping stories about life and God. This should be a part of each of our volunteers experience.
  • Snack Line. Depending on the week, we sometimes need volunteers to assist in handing out snacks and drinks prior to the service.
  • Meal and Dessert. If your ministry group or church wants to be added to our regular rotation in providing our weekly meal and dessert, please contact us for more information.

Friday Night Street Evangelism

On Friday nights YWAM Houston meets for prayer and worship in Montrose before heading out to the streets for friendship evangelism. We hand out water and snacks as well as offer prayer to those in need. We are always excited to have others join us during these times.

NOTE: If you are interested in volunteering in any of these capacities, please contact YWAM Director Martin Dale at Martin@ywamhouston.org or call 281.353.8072

Prayer

We recognize that this ministry would not be possible without God’s presence and we ask that you consider adding us to your prayer list. Please pray for our street kids and older homeless that they may lead healthy, productive lives and come to know the saving power of Jesus Christ. Also pray for our street babies, that God’s hand of protection would be on them and the cycle of abuse and poverty would be broken in their lives. As 2 Corinthians 1:11 says, “You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.”
