At Light On A Hill we believe in the Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and then the rest of the world approach to missions. Jerusalem refers to ministering in the local community where the church is located. For us this is Grapeland and Houston County. The next level is Judea or missions within our own state and country. Finally the rest of the world is everything else.
Jerusalem – Local Community Missions
Houston County Share
A non-profit organization based out of Crockett that serves the needs of residents of Houston County. They provide food, clothing, and other services at no cost based on need.
Grapeland Elementary School
Each fall we provide backpacks full of school supplies for second, third, and fourth grade students enrolled in Grapeland Elementary. The backpacks are provided to every student in these grades and is not based on need. It is a opportunity for us to bless our local community.

Judea and Samaria – Within Our Own Country
Teen Challenge is a Bible and Faith-based program for people who need to get their lives in order. It often focuses on people with drug and alcohol addiction but can provide help in redirecting the lives of anyone needing their assistance. There are separate programs for Men and Women and recently a facility for juveniles has opened in Texas.
The Rest Of The World – Foreign Missions

Danny and Sue Jaynes – GlobeLink Foundation
Danny and Sue Jaynes are dedicated to bringing the gospel to people in Africa who have never had the opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ. They are focused not only on introducing them to the message of the gospel but to discipling those who accept him as Lord and Savior. They are truly building the Church from the ground up.
