STCH Ministries is a collaborative effort. The dream birthed in the heart of Laura Boothe 67 years ago grew into an organization leading hundreds to meet the needs of children and families in crisis across South Texas and around the world. As you know, STCH Ministries is comprised of nine ministries, each one dedicated to healing hearts and sharing hope in their own way.
One of our driving principals is to remain 100% privately funded and God has honored that principal by providing through His people on many levels. STCH Ministries continues to grow because individuals and churches go beyond financial support. They link arms with our staff every day.
Fourteen Churches spanning from San Antonio to Houston, all the way down to Corpus Christi partnered with our Family Counseling ministry to provide a place for families and individuals to find hope and direction when they found themselves in broken places.
Couples enjoyed romance and inspiration in Corpus Christi during Date Night by the Bay. School counselors, pastoral staff and others who help people earned continuing education credit and more tools for their work at our 3rd annual iCare conference in Victoria. These events further Family Counseling’s efforts to provide safe environments for individuals, couples and families to process through the places of hurt in their lives.
God used our Faith & Work and Faith & Finances ministries as instruments of hope, reconciliation and healing for families across Houston, San Antonio and Corpus Christi helping people discover God’s purpose for their life, work and money. Students in all three cities testified to the practical and spiritual impact these programs made on them both personally and professionally. Class sizes, new training sites and the support from volunteers willing to assist in facilitating allowed the courses to increase in all three cities.
Hundreds of individuals stepped up to encourage the children and moms at Homes for Children and Homes for Families. That encouragement was expressed through hugs, group activities, new sidewalks and playing games.
Others literally went the extra mile traveling beyond the borders of the United States to Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Peru. Volunteers in these places ministered to orphans, taught job skills and built homes to show that Jesus’ love crosses man-made boundaries.
Our vision is to show the love of Christ to each child and family to whom we minister. Your cooperation brings it to reality as you pray, demonstrate acts of love through time spent helping others and financial support. Thank you for joining us in reaching hurting children and families with God’s love and truth.
