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....

12/27-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...

12/6 – 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

10/6 – How are we doing at Tejas?

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will be glad and rejoice in it! If you are like me, you just sang that song in your head and hopefully it made you smile. I find that I need to remind myself constantly these days that Jesus is still in control and we are...

Friend of Tejas, Great news! We reached our May goal of $10,000 in 13 days! It is so amazing to see how God brought families together, who love Tejas, for this common purpose. "For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever!...

4/22 – Join us in helping others in this time of need

Friend of Tejas, I confess that I find myself thinking inwardly way too often during these troubling times. Thankfully, 2 Corinthians reminds me that we no longer need to live for ourselves but for Jesus and others. At Tejas, our mission is to set the stage for...
