Our mission here at Austin Oaks is to help every person meet, know, and follow Jesus worldwide.


“Here’s the knowledge you need; you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you. And you will be My witness, first here in Jerusalem, then beyond Judea and Samaria, and finally to the farthest places on the Earth.”
Acts 1:8

Rio Bravo Ministries - Reynosa, Mexico

Located just beyond the Texas/Mexico border in Reynosa, Rio Bravo began in 1992 when Ray Hanson and his wife Leah were donated a little piece of land on a literal junkyard. Today, Rio Bravo is a walled compound on approximately 6 acres that contains homes for about 75 kids and, with 430 students, is the largest school in Reynosa.

Austin Oaks Church visits Rio Bravo several times a year to serve the community and support Rio Bravo with practical help. Work ranges from construction projects to playing with the kids. Our teams include both children and adults, so the entire family can serve together.

Tens of thousands of volunteers from local churches around the world partner with OCC to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ at festive outreach events where children are surprised with these shoebox gifts.
