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. As Tejas staff, we are grateful for each opportunity we have to serve alongside our volunteers and build a part in His Kingdom together.

Extended Stay Volunteers

We have many volunteer groups, such as the SOWERS, Texas Baptist Men, 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.
