Every year, hundreds of women in Austin find themselves at a crisis point.

We provide opportunities for housing, community and growth as living representations of Jesus’s good news.

DSCN0171Vision Luke 4:18 Ministries founded House of Glory as a living representation of that good news.

Through this transitional home, Barbara and her team have provided housing for over 100 women. During their stay, the women receive holistic care. They are not only provided shelter, they are also equipped with the tools they need to grow as individuals.

Participants are guided through a systematic approach to personal and spiritual transformation. The goal is to be a healing community that leads individuals to Christlike maturity.

This is only the beginning. Vision Luke 4:18 Ministries is seeking to expand into a second home. There are also plans for an equipping center, where hundreds can experience life skills training and spiritual formation.
