About Us
Areas of Focus: 
Mission: 

At Agape Development, we are transforming our neighborhood by
preparing Christ-following, independent, community leaders.

Programs: 

At Agape Development, we serve the entire family and seek to empower our community through the life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Adult-Social Business

The Agape Property Repair Team is a dual mission enterprise. We provide high quality and affordable handyman services to the Greater Houston area, and we provide meaningful employment, living wages, and holistic development in our community.

Adults

In the OST/South Union community, strong adult leadership can dramatically improve the life of a family and surrounding community. So, we offer programming to empower adults in their most often mentioned and most critical areas of need: Employment and Discipleship. We offer discipleship groups for women and men that meet regularly for prayer, Bible study and fellowship. In the midst of these relationships, real transformation is worked out. We also conduct retreats where we share the gospel of Jesus Christ. These events have changed the trajectory of so many families. We also believe that work is important for healthy communities. Our staff and volunteers work hard to help every adult find employment to support a family. This includes resume writing, interview practice, transportation, follow-up calls and thank you notes to employers, coaching on appropriate dress, and workplace behavior training. In both our discipleship and employment efforts, we rely upon partnering organizations and talented volunteers to join our staff in serving the adults of our neighborhood.

Young Adults

We value our community and want to see it thrive continuously. For this to come to fruition, we feel it is important to create a compelling alternative young adult community that offers goal-setting, accountability, discipleship, and healthy community relationships. When personal development isn’t put on display, highlighted, or presented as achievable, young adults miss the opportunity to mature and blossom into Christ-following, independent, community leaders, and often turn to negative outlets.

Youth Ministry

The American teenage experience is full of forks in the road where young people can make heroic or destructive decisions. All teens need mature adults guiding them to hear and obey Jesus Christ in this critical phase of life. Our experiential discipleship program introduces the gospel and how it intersects our life. In this program we will process with others the present pain considering God's Word as it speaks to grief, loss, and ultimate victory. We will face failure and work through it as we share our stories and together look at examples from scripture. The small groups will encourage us to celebrate life's accomplishments together, observe traditions together, and rejoice together when God answers our prayers. Together we will worship, serve, eat, pray, play, and study scripture.

Children and Parents' Ministry

Our community is filled with children with bright ideas and innocent hearts. We recognize that threats to those qualities exist and so we offer programming to protect and develop our youth. The Children's & Parents' Ministry is devoted to not only developing the whole child, whether it's spiritually, socially, or academically, but strengthening parents through workshops, resources, and fellowship. We have an array of programs throughout the year devoted to enhancing our future leaders. Our Backyard Bible Club is an after-school program that allows children to have a safe-haven during the school year to further education and friendships. During the summer we offer a seven-week camp, ensuring that no mind is left idle. Here we combine our love for fun and faith. ​
