Outreach by the Numbers
Outreach is the church in action outside the walls of the building. It's global missions, like traveling to Central America to dig a clean-water well; it's local service projects, like visiting Houston shelters to spend time with the homeless or with battered women.
Helping others in Christ's Name is an action of the heart, but we value metrics to help guide where and how we spend resources. MDPC strives to always be a good steward of the funds our friends and members entrust to our care.
Committees made up of faithful church members and staff evaluate our ministry partnerships every year, reviewing current financial statements and making site visits. The Ministry/Outreach Partners on the list below were vetted at the end of last year for 2023.
Those partners are divided into several categories that are characterized by the type of ministry they do and the services they provide: Children & Youth, Community Development, Education, Evangelism & Discipleship, Global, Health, Housing & Homelessness, Human Trafficking, Hunger, Missionaries, Prison Ministry, Recovery, Special Needs, Spring Branch, and Support Ministry. (Our partners are actively serving in multiple areas, and many of them could be grouped under multiple disciplines; however, for ease of use, they are listed under the category(ies) that are most relevant to their work.)
