Getting involved with projects is one of the best ways to meet new people in the Houston Burners community and bring an idea to life. Any and all skill levels are welcome.
We’re currently accepting new projects to reside at the warehouse.
If you’d like to help with a project or event, please fill out the form at the bottom to be put in touch with that project lead. Many of these projects are also discussed at our Weekly Church Night and have events and meetings scheduled on our Calendar.
If you’d like to add your project to the list below or need help creating a page for your project hosted on the Houston Burners website, please contact us. Note: projects housed in the Houston Burners non-profit have an asterisk. These projects enjoy sales tax, liability and insurance protection through the non-profit and have oversight from the non-profit’s board. Contact a board member if you would like to discuss housing your project in the non-profit.
