In the great state of Texas there are still many places where the gospel has not arrived; there are many places where there is no church. On the other hand, many churches have not fully reached the growing population of people who do not know Christ. We can start simple churches in homes, workplaces, or where ever necessary to help fulfill the Great Commission.
Philippi Church Prison Ministry
A Philippi church is a group of prisoners who pray, worship God and testify to the love and power of God within the prisons like Paul and Silas did during their time of imprisonment. While Philippi churches are usually smaller than traditional churches, they are much more active. They meet every day and should be the greatest influence within the unit for helping prisoners with their problems, resolving conflicts, helping the authorities to have the respect and obedience of the prisoners and encouraging all of the prisoners.
How to Help
For less than $20 a month, you or your church can sponsor a prison church. Your support will give a Philippi church a study bible, a bible dictionary, and individual discipleship materials in the inmate's preferred language for a year.
Contact Mario Gonzalez for more information on how to get started.

Satellite "Seed" Congregations
Reach and baptize people for your church by “satelliting" your congregation beyond the walls of the building. The BGCT can help by equipping your laypersons as leaders of no-cost, simple congregations among unreached pockets of people. These satellite congregations generally meet in homes and are affiliated with your church as its sponsor, contributing to your church's overall impact in the community.
Multi-Housing Church Planting
Reach out to people living in apartment complexes, mobile home parks and dormitories by equipping leaders for ministries in those types of living environments. Leaders will be trained for simple, on-site extensions of the church body. Click here for more information.
