Gathering Men

REACH Ministries sponsors events that gather our community to hear nationally recognized speakers share their stories of career success.  A unique aspect of each speaker’s story is how faith in God brought contentment and personal success that achievements did not deliver.

Growing in Faith

Faith in God is like a seed planted in good soil that grows with sunlight and water.  REACH supplies the water of Biblical teaching and the sunlight of encouraging fellowship and watches life-changing faith grow.

Giving Charitably

A product of growing in faith is giving charitably.  REACH Ministries has been privileged to support good causes including wounded warrior home construction, hurricane disaster relief, summer conferences for high school athletes, appreciation programs for veterans and police officers.  Between 2021 and 2022, REACH eliminated $8 million of medical debt for needy families.

Upcoming Retreat

Rock Solid Men

At Rock Solid Men, you will explore Paul’s letters to the Corinthians, and be challenged to move toward manhood as described in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14: “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.” You will be encouraged to trust God more fully as your source of courage and strength, rely on other men and love well, seek wisdom and a deeper belief in Scripture, and be both offensive and defensive when it comes to your walk with God.

Speakers include:

CHAD WILLIAMS
U.S. Navy Seal

Chad began Navy SEAL training alongside 175 men and finished as one of only 13 who earned the coveted Trident insignia. He draws from combat experience as a former SEAL to speak and write on motivation, overcoming adversity, teamwork, faith and leadership. He is the author of SEAL of GOD.

TIM HAWKINS
Comedian

A recent audience member mused, “My husband and I love the clean comedy of Tim Hawkins. He takes the normal life and brings some ‘crazy funny’ to it that can bring laughter tears to your eyes.” We’ll be showing excerpts of his ‘crazy funny’ from a recent tour.

PETER AND ELIZE HONE
Banquet Speakers

Peter and Elize founded  Stamford Sales, a national distribution company in South Africa. With the support of his wife, Elize, Peter was born again, meeting Christ in a dramatic encounter. Peter is the author of A Big Life and Boldly Whispering the Name of Jesus.

Upcoming Event

Tuesday, February 21

Annapolis Christian Academy
3875 S. Staples
Corpus Christi, TX  78411

Teacher: Chris Pinedo

Chris Pinedo is a practicing attorney in Corpus Christi. He has been active leading Christian men’s ministry for several years.

Testimony: Adolfo Hernandez

Adolfo has been a follower of Jesus Christ for 7 months. His wife and family had been sharing their testimonies with him for several years, but Adolfo had no interest in becoming a Christian. It was through a friend inviting him to attend a Walk to Emmaus retreat that Adolfo saw his need for God’s salvation, and by faith received Christ as his Savior and Lord.  This will be the first time he has given his testimony in front of a large group but is eager to do so.

Elimination of Spiritual Debt:

REACH Ministries has eliminated over $8 million of medical debt for needy families!  But there’s a greater debt, which everyone has, that we’d like to help eliminate.  Watch this video to see what it is and how to eliminate it.

History

REACH Ministries was launched with an evangelistic luncheon for businessmen in December of 2011 after incorporating as a non-profit organization and hiring its founder, Greg Hood, as Executive Director.

The first luncheon speaker, Tom Campbell, and his story were the early models of what REACH would become in its mission to gather men, grow in faith and give charitably.

Tom, a University of Texas football legend and future inductee into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame, related his story of faith in God to the initial lunch gathering.  It all began, he said, at an outreach luncheon when he heard an Apollo astronaut tell how his stellar career and world-wide fame had not brought him the happiness he expected.  Tom listened attentively because he, too, had not found fulfillment despite his fame.  The astronaut said that happiness and peace came only when he began a relationship with Jesus Christ so urged those present to also turn to Christ.

Tom said he eagerly followed the speaker’s urging and also joined a small-group Bible study to grow in faith.  While being mentored, he gained spiritual confidence to reach out to others and found it especially meaningful when he led his terminally ill father to be assured of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.  Tom’s wife and children were also beneficiaries of Tom’s new faith and became followers of the Savior.

Tom’s growth in faith naturally led to charitable giving, both of time and finances.  Fish For Life, a ministry to at-risk kids which introduces them to mentors and outdoor activities, became a favorite charity for Tom.

Since launching with Tom Campbell, we have continued to gather men at numerous outreach events, sponsor many small groups to grow in faith and give charitably to meet needs.

REACH Ministries has also sponsored the Leadership Prayer Breakfast since 2012, a community-wide event which gathers public servants and military leaders to recognize their service, pray for them and to hear a Biblical call to righteousness.

REACH continued to expand our ministry in 2017 by partnering with church congregations to provide strategies for building men’s ministries through seminars, conferences and small-group training.

REACH has also sponsored special events to show appreciation for police officers and military veterans who attend as honored guests at no charge.

Charitable giving has been an important aspect of REACH Ministries and includes service to other organizations such as leading studies for Coaches Outreach and financial contributions to wounded warrior projects, disaster relief, high school athletes, and mentoring projects for men.
