We are a nonprofit that teaches, trains + equips people to walk fully + freely in the love of God. Our heart is to see men + women of all ages + backgrounds empowered to walk with intimately God in their passions, skills + callings for a lifetime. Check out our programs below.
heart + art //
To raise up an army of worshippers (we call them "poet warriors") who are able to lead others into God’s presence through their excellence of “heart” (character, integrity, authenticity before God) and “art” (skill, craft, passion)
What is THE TABLE //
A place where people can learn, practice and grow together first in ministering to the Lord and from that, ministering to others
THE TABLE began in the Fall of 2018 from a desire to create a space where the men and women of RECESS could cultivate a genuine intimacy with the Father together. A core belief is that intimacy is the place from which all significant outward ministry flows. They are a collective of musicians, artists, teachers, dancers and intercessors who are learning to magnify the Lord through purity of heart and imagination.
seek, encounter, know //
To equip women with the tools they need to walk intimately with and victoriously in the Lord for a lifetime. A core part of RECESS Women is the "RECESS Book". Check out their website for more info >
What is the RECESS Book //
A 20-lesson journey that equips and empowers women to seek God, for He promises that if we seek Him, we will find Him, and if we find Him, our lives will be forever changed.
RECESS Women began in the summer of 2014 with a group of 12 women who simply hungered to know God more. As they gathered to learn what it means to seek after God’s presence, they experienced God's love and power in a life-changing way. Since then, several hundred women have been through the RECESS Book and journey. To purchase the newly published RECESS book, head on over to RECESS' website >

LOVE OUT LOUD
everyday, everywhere //
To equip believers to walk in God's love everywhere they go and with everyone they meet
What is LOL //
A once a month gathering where believers are trained and equipped to walk missionally in the love of God
Love Out Loud (LOL) began in 2018 with a group who was hungry to see God's love transform not just their own lives but the city of Houston. Every week, they gathered to walk around different neighborhoods of Houston, asking God to give them opportunities to love on people with His love. The stories of what God did those first few months were wild and inspired them to create a space every month where believers could gather to be trained to walk simply yet powerfully in the love of Jesus.
LOVE OUT LOUD
RECESS is the parent nonprofit over RECESS Women, THE TABLE and LOVE OUT LOUD. Our heart is to teach, train and equip men and women of all ages and backgrounds to walk fully and free in the love of God. Each of our programs serve a unique function in raising people up in an authentic understanding and pursuit of Jesus. We believe that as God transforms us with His love, we are then able to go and transform the world around us by His love. This is why we keep His love (our love for Him and His love for us) at the center of all we do.
"It is a blessing to support RECESS. I challenge you to find a ministry that produces more fruit per dollar."
