Boots On The Ground

Boots on the Ground is a hands-on ministry providing developmental relief to children, the elderly and disabled with essential needs. 

Join Our Team!

Boots on the Ground has multiple service opportunities broken up into different teams. When you join our team, you will receive emails informing you of opportunities to serve in the area(s) of your interest. Each team focuses on a different part of the ministry.

On average, a project lasts 2-3 hours. We seek to stop at 4 hours no matter what. We ask that you commit to team up with us at least once a month if you can for a couple of hours.

Serve Opportunities
  • Anti-slip Team – This team applies anti-slip material as a follow up to previous ramp builds. This is a great opportunity to pray for those that we have already served if you feel led.
  • Beds 4 Kids – The mission of this ministry is to work with the Noah Project and the CPS Care Portal. We want to provide a bed for any child who doesn’t have one.  You can help by assisting us in putting these together.  No special skills needed.
  • Cooking Team - This team feeds the physical and spiritual needs of the community in which we are serving. 
  • Disaster Relief - Join in disaster relief and recovery efforts in the Big Country and the surrounding areas. Projects will vary depending on need. 
  • Donations Ministry– We pick up donations and distribute them to those in need.  We try hard to help others coming out of programs such as the Noah Project, New Beginnings, Hope Haven and others by making their transition easier as we donate needed items.  You don’t need a truck, just a willing heart!
  • Houses for Healing - This team helps to care for the sick by providing low cost, temporary housing to those who are receiving long-term medical treatment away from home at our Beltway Tiny House. There are several serve opportunities within this ministry. 
    • House Parents
    • Greeter Team
    • Meals Team
    • Cleaning Team
    • Errands Team
    • Maintenance Team
  • Module Team - This team meets at one of two warehouse locations to put the frames for the ramp together prior to the ramp build. This is usually a 1-2 hour project that is a great time of fellowship.
  • Local Ministry Support Team –This Boots on the Ground group exists to assist, support, and serve local ministries and partner organizations in the Big Country. These opportunities may include a variety of activities like hands-on ministry, prayer, and assistance with facilities/properties.
  • Ramp Build Team – These teams serve those with mobility issues to get in and our of their house by building a wheelchair ramp. No experience necessary.
  • Testimony Team – Do you like to take picture and/or video? This is the team for you.  Come help us capture the moments on film as people serve.  These are used to encourage others, chronicle the journey and share what God is doing.
  • Utility Team - This team helps to serve by installing grab bars or other safety related products, some basic weatherization to homes, and completing very minor home repairs. 
  • VOAD Tiny House Build - This project is for an elderly gentleman who lost his home to a tornado in May of 2019. The Big Country VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) has decided to have a tiny home built in its place. If you are interested in serving on this project, please sign up here.
  • Warehouse Team – This team serves behind the scenes by organizing and helping the donation team and keeping track of inventory. This is an integral part in almost every other ministry we have.
  • Yards for the Disabled – The Mission of this ministry is to bless the elderly and disabled by mowing their grass at least twice a month and praying for them as we serve.

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
