At Austin Oaks we believe we have a mission and we believe that one day, Jesus is coming back. But the Bible teaches that His return won't come until every nation, tongue, tribe and people have heard of Jesus. We are His ambassadors. It's our job to tell them. As Paul wrote in Romans, "How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent." This is our mission. To go. To send. To tell the world about Jesus. Join us!

Give - At Austin Oaks Church, we embrace our calling to global mission. And while not all of us are called to go, we are called to give. Currently, we are proud to be supporting missionaries in 16 different countries who are making disciples around the world. It is your generosity that enables us to help support these missionaries as they take the Gospel to the world.
Pray - We also want to pray for our missionaries who sacrifice so much and face the unfamiliar every day for the sake of the Gospel. You are welcome to join our Global Missions Commission on the first Monday of every month at 6:30PM in the prayer chapel as we gather to pray for our missionaries.
Care - Touch Global is a mission ministry that makes clothing, blankets, medical bandages and more to send to ministries around the world. Join them on third Saturdays at 9:30AM in CLC 211.
Go - Sometimes we are called to go, take a week out of our busy schedule and serve God in another culture. In light of this, we offer short term mission trips for all ages throughout each year. Missions in the past have been to Sudan, East Asia, Guatemala and more. In the fall of 2015, we have a trip planned to Rwanda. If you are interested in going, please contact Gloria Flores.
