Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Outreach and mission to students and administrations has always been the DNA of River Bend Baptist Church. River Bend has actively assisted and started Christian clubs at Wertheimer 6th grade, Briscoe Jr. High, and recently Lehman Jr. High in Fulshear. We meet regularly with student leaders for devotions and planning meetings where students lead other students in worship and sharing the love of Christ.
In addition we assist other local groups such as Ballard House, New Birth Ministries of Brookshire, Family Hope Ministries of Fulshear, Prison Fellowships: Angel Tree Project, Katy Christian Ministry, Fulshear Committee Outreach, and area churches.
John and Pam Boaz, River Bend members, established “Lord Send Me Ministries, Inc.” in September 2010. This non-profit organization exists to form an alliance of volunteers, personnel, and partners to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ, to support National and International churches, and offer assistance to a hurting humanity. During the cold months we collect blankets, shoes, socks, and coats (particularly for men), for the homeless in our area. Financial contributions, one-time or ongoing, can be sent to Lord Send Me Ministries, Inc., 34552 Park Green, Brookshire, TX 77423.
Update from John Boaz: LSMM had a very busy 2019 with the addition of my daughter Christina as part of the staff and the introduction of the Boaz House rehab facility! We had a great tour of Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee, where together Christina and I shared in churches and rehab facilities! On the way home Christina shared with us how God spoke to her, and that she was to open a full rehab for women. The money was raised and the location was found and we received our first resident (Wendy) and she was baptized at our grand opening! God is working at LSMM.
We are actively involved in the lives of those in our church, but the community is another area where we want to show God’s love. Throughout the year we invest our energies into activities that benefit the community such as:
- Sponsoring local children’s sports teams
- City of Fulshear events
- Just Ride for a Just Cause
- Partner with area ministries
