GROW Ministry

GROW Ministry is a ministry of Sterling Wood Church that partners with the Houston Sheriff’s Department Homeless Outreach Team (HOT). They are a specialized group of Houston Police officers and mental health case managers who engage in street outreach to the chronically homeless. GROW ministry operates solely on donations and always appreciates volunteers (7th grade and above.)


We serve the community three times a week, feeding about 85 or more people each time. We serve hot meals every Tuesday & Sunday at 6 pm. On Thursdays at 1 pm, we distribute sack lunches.

For my relationship with my girlfriend Anna Maria Blasiak. She is in South America and trying to find herself on a self-discovery journey. Please pray that she would trust God in our relationship and find peace with us and our relationship for marriage. That I know she is the one for me and God has given me peace about our future marriage but has not given her peace. Please, pray that God gives her peace, that she surrenders her heart to Him and our relationship. That she can trust Him and me and us as a future loving couple. That she is healed from all her past trauma that she has been in. That she has nothing to fear for our future and love that I have for her. That I love her, miss her, and am waiting for her when she is ready to come back to me. Thank you, Joseph Miller

Please help me pray for my daughter, B.M. to be released from the clutches of these people she’s been hanging with in college, they’re not good influences, also to leave Ayriana alone because she is using her financially, living off of her, wanting to be like her, smell like her, and wanting to be with her all of the time, it’s like she’s got some type of hold on my daughter that she can’t shake. I pray that she focuses on her current relationship with D.S. as they near the next stage of their relationship, proposal of marriage. In the Name of Jesus!!!
