Reach Out Initiative 

The Arise Reach Out Initiative is an outreach program established to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to provide spiritual, educational, social events and activities throughout the community that will promote godly relationships and interaction. We desire to equip individuals by serving one another; first within the family unit, then in our communities, our nation, and throughout the world, this according to Matthew 28:8-20 and Acts 1:8.

The Reach Out Initiative will:

Reach those at the Austin Police Department, Austin Fire Department, the City & State Governments, our school system, the business community and the general populace. We will reach out to those who are incarcerated, hospitalized, institutionalized and to those who need the Gospel outside of our church.

Teach the Word of God to provide clear guidelines and instructions necessary to develop a godly character and the qualities of Jesus Christ. Teaching all to be responsible for one’s actions, to be accountable to others, and the importance of serving the needs of others while teaching all to have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.

Disciple individuals in a manner that encourages a continued pursuit of the newfound relationship they have with Jesus Christ, while emphasizing the significance of committing and connecting with Arise Ministries.

Lead by example, a lifestyle that exemplifies what it means to be a follower of Christ (a Christian).

Our vision is to positively affect every segment of our city through relationship, prayer, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by leading through example.
