Cast Your Nets Ministry

Cast Your Nets was formed in January 2016 by former HopePointe members Joel and Rhonda Jurasinski. The Jurasinskis retired from their professional lives early and moved to Dumaguete City, Philippines, located on the southeastern coast of Negros Oriental.

Compassion Card Ministry 

The Compassion Outreach Ministry is collecting Walmart, Kroger, and HEB gift cards.  These gift cards will be given to people who come to our campus needing gas or grocery money.  We are collecting cards with values of $10, $15, $20, or $25.  You may place your donated cards in the offering basket on Sunday mornings, or there is a basket at the Connection Center in the Atrium as well.

Plain Gospel Mission serves the Galeana area of Nuevo Leon by caring for the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs of children at an on-site Albergue, constantly sharing the good news of Jesus Christ as they do.  Plain Gospel Mission also partners with local churches in the area in their mission and church-planting efforts, strongly focusing on discipleship, equipping the local congregations to make disciples who make disciples.

We will spend July 31st – Aug 3rd serving at the Albergue and in the Galeana area.  Most likely, we will be assembling and delivering backpacks of School Supplies to children at the church in Galeana and the village churches as well.  We will stay in the mission house on the Albergue campus, being guided and cared for by Wayne and Carolyn Brown of Plain Gospel Mission.  We will return to San Juan, TX on Friday Aug 4th, where we'll have a team dinner and share time after the drive.
