For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.                                                      
                                                                                     Matthew 25:35-36

Kairos Outside - Houston TX
Kairos Outside - Houston TX

We believe that the families of the incarcerated are "doing time" right
along with their loved ones. Kairos Outside is designed to let those families
know that there is a community that cares about them and their needs.

The weekend is a way to help strengthen the family unit and encourage
small support groups for women whose relatives are at the same facility.

We provide a secure place for women to share their struggles with each other
and with those who are empathetic to their situations. The women on the outside,
in many ways, have to be stronger than their relatives inside to survive in today's world.

We hope Kairos 'Outside' will help them find strength for their life journeys
and give them a chance to find and build friendships that may last a lifetime.


Please visit our "Community" page to get information for the gathering planned in November!

Also, an update on Advisory Council nominations!

Just a reminder: Due to the on-going COVID-19 situation, the KO Houston Advisory Council has (once again) made the decision to postpone Weekend #39, which was originally scheduled for April 2020 and then postponed until October of this year.  The new date will now be April 16-18, 2021...God willing!  It is our prayer that we will be back to full-time ministry by that time!!!
Remember, we are always looking for team members!  If you would like to serve on Weekend #39, please let us know!  Team meetings are set to start in January 2021.  

If you were confirmed as a guest on Weekend #39 and have not been contacted about the new date, please send us an email to to let us know.


If you have either served on a team or attended a Weekend as a guest and you are not receiving emails from Kairos Outside Houston, please send an email to and let us know.  Please include the email you would prefer us to use, as well as any other contact information you would like to share.


Each of us should use whatever gift we have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. Visit the "Community" page to read more about:
