SERVICE

ADRN is a nonprofit organization comprised of nearly 200 Greater Austin churches and thousands of trained volunteers bringing hope into crisis. ADRN’s network enables and empowers church members to organize, prepare, mobilize, and respond quickly in the event of disaster, great or small.  

It is through the generosity of their in-kind donations, monetary gifts and volunteer assistance, that ADRN can fund the rebuild/repair of survivor homes and provide immediate assistance to those in crisis.

Mission Possible Austin

Mission Possible Austin is a multifaceted Christian ministry serving the Eastside inner-city of Austin. Their stated mission is, “Breaking the cycle of poverty one life at a time.” And their vision is, “Lives changed. Communities impacted. Generations transformed.” MP Austin organizes Church Under The Bridge (at IH-35 & 8th St.), Lifeline Pregnancy Resource Center (at 12th & Chicon), and other services.

EVANGELISM

Church Under the Bridge

Jail to Jobs

Church Under the Bridge is a worship service hosted every Sunday from 10am-12 under I-35 between 7th & 8th streets. While many of those who attend are homeless, Church Under the Bridge is a place for all to come and worship God. Services are coordinated by Mission Possible Austin but is a combined effort of the body of Christ throughout Austin. Those who attend this worship service will have the opportunity to be a part of live music, prayer, fellowship and a down-to-earth Gospel message.  

While CUB gathers every Sunday, Austin Oaks Church goes and hosts services every 4th Sunday of the month to provide worship music, a message, a meal and often distribute clothing.
The Jail to Jobs mission is to empower youthful offenders to find purpose, personal growth, and achievement. They strive to break the cycle of recidivism, give youthful offenders employment-based mentoring and training, along with spiritual and character development. The ministry partners with construction and culinary professions.

You can get involved in this ministry by being a mentor, leading a bible study, teaching skills, and more!
