A Board On Their Knees

To Serve and Be Discipled

To Serve and Be Discipled   I first came to Tejas in 1999 when I saw the brochure that said at Tejas you can serve and be discipled. It was my first attraction point to camp ministry. A place where I wanted to plug in. Every summer we hire high school and college...

9/19 42

42 On September 19, 1979, at 4:19 am in room 319 I came into the world laughing (or so I am told and yes that is a lot of 9's and 19's). Maybe that is when God instilled in me the ability to look at life a little differently. Now some of you have done the math and...

5/24- Tejas – Deferred Maintenance Part II

Last week I sent out a story about the ongoing maintenance at Tejas and how deferred maintenance can add up. Obviously, we did not want to have to put things off but with reduced use and cash flow this last year, we had to. The fun part is playing catch up not only...
