About us

Creative Outreach Ministries exists for our community! Our greatest desire is to bring people together to inspire, encourage, and help one another in times of need. Built on faith and the Word of God, COM’s programs—New Life Women’s Center, Angelic Resale, and Community Hope—are its support beams and outlets to offer hope and solutions to our neighbors.

vision

A better world starts with one person, spreads to a family, and then a community. We envision Montgomery County as a community of people who stand for one another, helping in ways that enable another person to experience a life full of purpose, founded on God. One by one, we strive every day to connect those in need with people who are able to help!

“…THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL, BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW. THEREFORE ASK THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND OUT WORKERS INTO HIS HARVEST.”

Luke 10:2

History

CREATIVE OUTREACH MINISTRIES (COM) BEGAN OUT OF THE TRUNK OF A CAR!

Founder Dottie Compton distributed blankets and groceries from her vehicle to people in need in the community of Conroe, Texas, for 10 years prior to officially forming a non-profit. We are proud of our small beginning as it is a constant reminder of how time-after-time God opened incredible opportunities to expand His work through this ministry. After years of faithful service, a growing need arose for an establishment where people could come to receive assistance rather than wait for our teams to come to them.

COM obtained its 501(c)(3) status in 1998. Soon after, in 1999, Angelic Resale opened its doors to help provide for the expanding ministry of Creative Outreach, as well as connect those who have with those in need. Our Emergency Assistance program, operating out of Angelic Resale, was created to provide financial assistance, clothing, and food to individuals and families who needed help. Emergency Assistance, now Community Hope, works with churches, schools, and agencies through our food and clothing voucher program.

Every single area of Creative Outreach was birthed out of God’s work in Dottie’s personal life. One major component that has come from her early struggles is New Life Women’s Center. New Life began in 2004 to bring restoration to women with broken lives as she once had. Through the yers, many women have turned their pain into purpose and are fulfilling their God-given destiny!

Today, Creative Outreach is a thriving non-profit continuing to serve the people of Montgomery County under the guidance and direction of God and a strong foundation on His Word.

Founder and Board members

SERVE. INSPIRE. DEVELOP.

Dottie Compton, born and raised in Indiana, was married to her husband Rich for 44 years, and together they brought Creative Outreach Ministries into being. Dottie and Rich made their home in Conroe, Texas and chose to be actively involved in the community since 1983. As an ordained minister and licensed biblical counselor, Dottie is the Executive Director for Creative Outreach Ministries and New Life Women’s Center, both which were formed in response to the love of God in her own life. Over the years, God has used her painful past as a tool to help others. Dottie believes God put greatness on the inside of every person and no matter what we face in life, He will use our challenges to bring us to a place of purpose and significance.
