We Love Our Volunteers!

Our Tejas volunteers are exceptional. They do not come to Tejas to receive, but rather to give through their time and service. Lights of Tejas is dependent on hundreds of volunteers giving thousands of hours over the course of the holiday season. We have volunteer opportunities during Lights of Tejas as well as opportunities both before and after the festival during our Serve Weekends.

Lights of Tejas Volunteers

A Christmas Lights Festival for the Entire Family

1. Serve Weekend - Setup - Friday, November 16th - Sunday, November 18th, 2018

This Serve Weekend is focused on setting up Lights of Tejas and making sure all the final preparations are made before Opening Night. Volunteers will help decorate conference rooms, change signage and transform the campus into a Christmas wonderland.

Extended Stay Volunteers

We have many volunteer groups, such as the SOWERS, Texas Baptist Men, Campers On Mission, Volunteer Christian Builders, and RVICs, stay with us for weeks at a time. They usually get to concentrate their efforts on larger projects at Tejas.

The Lord has blessed us with the help of so many wonderful volunteers. Volunteers are responsible for over half of the labor on our projects. They have become a vital part of the ministry of Tejas as so much would not get done without them.

If your group or family is interested in volunteer opportunities at Tejas, contact Paul Biles or call 979-595-5569.
