More Than A Retreat

Dining Hall: Phase Two

If you have been on Tejas property recently you have probably seen lots of dump trucks, excavators, dirt piles, and the occasional open hole in the ground. All of this means we have officially started Phase Two of our Dining Hall expansion! To prepare for this...

Wildflower Grove Bunk Houses

We continue to make progress on our bunk houses. Our wonderful builder, Jatzlau Construction, has poured the foundation on the last two bunk houses and was ready to begin the framing work. So what do you do when your project is on schedule? Ask your builder a...

Books, Jesus, & Perspectives

Our Director, Paul, is very passionate about reading, and has recently encouraged everyone on staff here to read more. Personally, I love to read and the challenge to read just offered further incentive to keep doing what I have been doing. I’m a creative type, and...

Simple Black Frames

So I got new glasses this past week. I’ll spare you the whole story-just know that I should’ve had something in or on my eyes for quite a while now. I knew my eyes were bad, but I guess I didn’t realize how bad. I guess that happens when your eyes get adjusted to...

Cunningham Terrace Update

Were you one of the thousands that came out to see us during Lights of Tejas? If you went to our midway area, you probably noticed we had started work on the new Cunningham Terrace. Back then, in December, only the posts and roofs of the Terrace were in place and...

Announcing The Names Of Our New Bunk Houses

Updates

The other day I updated my phone for the very first time. I should have done it quite a while ago, but I kept putting it off. I finally took the time to do it. Yes, I know. I’ve been living in the dark ages for a while. Anyway, I was really excited to update it,...

The Window

A few weeks ago, I went with some of my friends to Big Bend National Park. I honestly had the best time. Not only was it some of the most breathtaking creation I have ever seen, but it was some of the most refreshing time I had for quite some time. The following is...

A Reflection on Hebrews

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” –Hebrews 13:8 A few years ago I flew to Oregon to visit one of my best friends. I left really early in the morning and got to see the sun rise through my airplane window. It was one of the most beautiful...

Celebrating Advent: Week 4

Magi were men trained in astrology, dream interpretation and other mysteries. They studied the sky and knew the stars and their significance. At least two things are striking about the events that unfold in Matthew. The first is that these men were Gentiles. They...

The Tiny Tree

My family and I have been involved with Tejas since 2005. I fell in love with the atmosphere and so did my children, Andrew, Gabi and Ayanna. We have been to retreats, service projects, camps, and have come many weekends just to volunteer. Tejas has always been...

Celebrating Advent: Week 3

Today the ability to share exciting news with others is quick and easy. With one tweet, post, hashtag or group text, we can communicate with the masses. But things were obviously very different in the time Jesus was born. When something important happened, such as...

Celebrating Advent: Week 2

Throughout the Old Testament, the prophets spoke of the promised Savior, telling the people how to recognize His coming and reminding them that God had not forgotten. The Messiah would be born in Bethlehem, the Son of a virgin, a King to rule according to the...

Celebrating Advent: Week 1

Many of us grew up with the story of Advent beginning in a stable. But, the story begins in a Garden. When God created the world, all things were just as they should be. Creation functioned in perfect order and moved in seamless harmony. Man walked in unbroken...

Seek His Face Always

Wow. Life can be crazy. Circumstances change. People come and go. There are deadlines to meet, places to go, people to see…and sometimes we just get caught up right in the middle of it…and remembering to breathe becomes, well, sometimes we just forget to breathe....
