Our Vision

Help Build A Place Where Life-Changing Relationships With Jesus Are Formed

The Story Of Tejas

Imagine all the ways God will use this enhanced space with your generosity!

Our purpose is to set the stage for Jesus to transform lives. For too many years, we have not had enough dining hall seats for all our guests, forcing them to eat in shifts and breaking up this natural community time. We have great recreation, quiet coves, unique sleeping facilities and eclectic, inviting meeting spaces, but we have been missing this vital opportunity to provide time and space at meals so guests can relax, enjoy great food, encourage each other and share how Jesus is working in their lives. Would you consider being part of God's story at Tejas and give financially to help us launch into this next level of ministry? Your gift can help us create an amazing dining experience for 700 guests.

Tejas Dining Hall History

1989

1989 marks the first expansion of the dining hall adding 100 seats for our guests. We still had just one serving line in the Tejas Dining Hall and limited seating that held up guests from being able to eat and fellowship together at one time.

2000

During the 2000's more sleeping facilities were added and our meal times started to be staggered in order to accommodate the growing number of guests.

2010

In 2010, we enclosed the porch and reshaped the serving line path and added an additional serving line and larger salad bar area. Seating stayed the same and we were serving over 500 guests with the limited space of 150 seats inside and 120 outside in a tent pavilion.

2012

In 2012, the Dining Hall Phase 1 Expansion was set in motion. The kitchen prep, cooking, and dish washing areas were all expanded, creating a more efficient kitchen. The drink station became an island accessible on all sides, and new restrooms were even added. Phase 1 paved the way for a better kitchen, eating area, and altogether a better dining experience for guests.

2016

In 2016, the time arrived for Phase 2 of expansion. Even though the guest sleeping capacity had risen to over 600, dining hall seating remained less than half of that capacity. Meal times were still forced to be staggered over a 2-hour period, separating guests into groups. A huge pavilion was then constructed that could seat every single guest. For the first time since the initial growth pattern in the 90's, we could all eat and fellowship together!
