World Mission Partnerships 2022

In addition to short term mission opportunities, St. Martin’s supports financially and spiritually individuals called to the global mission field. We invite parishioners to suggest missionaries who are raising support for their international ministry for consideration. For more information, please contact World Missions at

Sole Hope Shoe Cutting At-Home Project

St. Martin’s needs volunteers to host a shoe-cutting party. This is an excellent way to help make a global impact without leaving Houston. No special sewing or cobbler skills are required. Sole Hope works with children in Uganda to help combat jiggers, which cause abscesses, infections and gangrene. St. Martin’s will supply the first five pairs of denim to make five pairs of shoes. If you wish to make more, simply supply the material and a donation of $14 for each additional pair of shoes which are assembled in Uganda.

This project is kid-friendly and great for the whole family! Kits are available for pick up on Mondays from the reception desk in the Pastoral Care Center and should be returned there by Friday at 3 p.m.

For more information, email World Missions at

Ways to Serve at Home

Please consider being a prayer partner with one of our mission trip attendees.  This is an active way to be involved without going, but instead partner with a parishioner who will attend.  It is a blessing for both parties! Please contact World Missions at or 713-985-3811.

Donations to the Rev. Bob Browne scholarship fund are also welcome to help financially assist those who wish to participate in a St. Martin’s mission trip.

St. Martin’s Missionaries

St. Martin’s began supporting Tom Gruen and his family in 2018. Tom, his wife Kelsey and their four children, Henry, Peter, Gracie and Samuel will be sharing the Gospel and ministering to the underserved children of Uganda, Africa. Tom will be working through EMI, Engineering Ministries International, whose mission is to develop people, design structures, and construct facilities which serve communities and the Church.

St. Martin’s also supports a second missionary team that we do not identify because of the threat of violence against Christians in the area that they serve.
