3/2 – Tejas – Jesus is not Random

Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows. - James 1:17 This week I felt like Peter promising that he would never deny the Savior,...

2/23 – Tejas – A Tangible Way to Help

Thank you to everyone who has stepped up and given towards rebuilding from the winter storm water breaks. It has been humbling to see many gifts totaling over $7,000 in just a few days. The need is still great and every little bit helps. Requests to volunteer have...

2/12 – Tejas – Jesus, You Keep Hope Alive

Well, today is another day I choose to sit in the dining hall to catch up on work. I have the music playing, and the the lyrics from "You Keep Hope Alive" by Mandisa are ringing true. "Days may be darkest, but your light is greater." John 8:12 says, "When Jesus...

2/3 – Tejas – Happy Two:Three Day!

Happy TWO:THREE Day! Today is February 3rd and a day to celebrate! Why? Well, at Tejas we call ourselves Team Two:Three after Philippians 2:3, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves."  We...

1/17 – Tejas – For Jesus

Tejas For Jesus I am writing to you today from our dining hall. It is early morning, the sun is starting to peek through the horizon over our swim lake and looking outside at God's creation is breathtaking. In this one shot I see so much. The chapel where countless...

1/4 – Tejas – Volunteering and Giving Update

Volunteering at Tejas Tejas isn't Tejas without all the wonderful people who come alongside us and help set the stage for Jesus to transform lives. This morning we began work on the outdoor seating porch for the dining hall and the new flooring in the bunk houses....

12/31 – Tejas – Praying Forward into 2021

Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, for you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now. And I am certain that God, who began...

12/27-Tejas-Springboard into 2021

2021 Springboard 2020 was a great year. Wait, did I just say that? Yes I did! We have seen God at work in ways we would never have dreamed. This year has taught me to depend more on Him and go with the flow, keeping nimble and willing to turn on a dime in order...

12/11 – Tejas’ Stewardship Plan

Last week I asked you to pray about contributing to Tejas this month. We are raising $25,000 to help us launch into next year. We have volunteers lined up for January and February to begin working on our bunk houses and dining hall deck. Since Sunday, $14,627 has...

12/6 – Tejas – Jesus’ plan not our own

WARNING: Do not read further if you don't want to know how to be a part of Jesus at work I remember the day back in March when I sat in our dining hall all alone and lost. I did not understand why Jesus led us to build a big space for people to gather and then take...

11/29 – Tejas – Where is our focus?

Where is our focus?  Go, go, go, and don't stop. That is what our culture shouts at us each day. Trust me, serving at a Christian camp and retreat that seeks to set the stage for Jesus to transform lives, we too get caught up in the "keep going" culture. Even being...

11/23 – Tejas – All is Well

All that was broken is made new again, All is Well, God with us Emanuel. Like many of you, the Christmas songs are already playing even though Thanksgiving is still to come. For years our team at this point in time would have hung over a million Christmas lights as...

10/6 – How are we doing at Tejas?

As I talk with Friends of Tejas, one of the first questions is: how are we doing? First and foremost, God is good. He has taken care of this ministry and there is still much that can be accomplished in setting the stage for Jesus to transform lives. Thank you to...
