When we launched Higher Expectations Church with just four families we prayed that God would show up in amazing ways and God has been faithful to answer our prayers. We prayed for people to come to know Jesus, today Higher Expectations Church is made up of people many different backgrounds and ethnicities. We prayed for influence in our community and God has been faithful to answer our prayers, opening opportunities for members to serve and minister to students weekly in the surrounding school districts. We prayed that God would allow us to be light in the midst of darkness and God answered our prayers in more amazing ways than we could imagine as we have witnessed hundreds trust Jesus as Saviour and many lives transformed.
Over the last nine years Higher Expectations Church has blessed our community with our various partners in many life changing ways, listed below are a few of the ministry impact initiatives we have accomplished collectively.
- 3,000 backpacks with schools supplies to underserve children
- 8,000 weekend meals given to students on free and reduced lunch program
- 2500 Christmas gifts distributed to children in the Humble community
- 10,000 items of clothing distributed free each year serving nearly 400 families
- Weekly ESL and GED classes open to everyone in the community
- Monthly mentoring of young men through our Young Gents Mentoring Program
- Midweek Tutoring provided at no cost to students of all ages
- Free counseling and conflict resolution for individuals and families
Phase two of the plan requires we develop the site by having the trees removed and land graded and seeded, creating soccer and football fields for local youth in the area who can not afford the cost of select league play, but if given a chance to play would jump at the opportunity. We are not just building a building or creating an alternative sports league, we are laying the groundwork and building a foundation to reach and change generations, while restore families and building community.
