Triple 5K initiative is an effort for the Greater Houston Church to focus on Servanthood & Evangelism throughout the month of April. Championed by the Single’s Ministry, this initiative rests on 3 pillars: Service, Kindness, Health.
During the month of April, we’re encouraging GHC members to serve their communities with the end goal of feeding 5,000 people in need. In addition to community service opportunities in each of your regions, we’ll be involved in random acts of kindness, also engaging in regular physical activity via walking, running and cycling.
For each activity, members are encouraged to fill out this Activity Log to log their actions and track the cumulative contributions of the church. This program is designed to include everyone – even if you may have physical limitations of some kind.
The capstone to our month of service will be a congregational 5K run/walk/bike at George Bush Park in West Houston on April 24, at 1:00pm.

What qualifies as an activity for Triple 5K initiative?
- Any community service opportunity that logs hours, any meal prepared or served to individuals in need, any isolated act of kindness to better someone else or your community, and any exercise involving run/walk/cycling any distance. Fill out Activity Log to log any qualifying activity.
How long does filling out the Activity Log Survey take?
- 15-20 seconds (depending on typing speed)
Are activities limited to opportunities offered by church or HWW?
- No! The objective is to simply get out, serve those in need, be kind to others, and focus on self-health. All qualifying activities, no matter through which organization, count
What counts for preparing and serving meals?
- If volunteering somewhere that prepares meals, use the host organization’s average daily projection of meals served. If preparing meals yourself, just count those meals
How to count service hours or random acts of kindness performed by multiple people?
- Multiply number of hours served by total people who served in your group to tally total man-hours served, then have one person log those hours on groups be-half. If multiple people participated in same RAoK then each person can claim the act and should each log the action separately.
