Welcome to BIG HOUSE TEXAS!

Thank you for visiting our site! BIG HOUSE is an acronym which stands for Believing in God, Helping Others Understand through Service Everywhere. Our mission is "To prepare youth and adults to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, by providing opportunity to be in mission to churches in need everywhere."

We want to give opportunity for youth to come together and grow in their Christian experience, through all aspects of our mission trip, whether it be on the work site, or in fellowship with one another. Camps include participants who have completed the 6th through the 8th grade from all over Texas. These youth come together with the help of adults to work on churches and homes of those who are in need, and are unable to do the work themselves.

At BIG HOUSE, the students and adults come together on Thursday, meet their teams and begin planning work on their selected site. It could be a home they are painting, or a church they are cleaning and repairing, or perhaps it's working in a church food pantry. The work sites are varied and endless. In the evenings everyone will relax after a wonderful dinner at the evening activities. You might be swimming or playing messy games regardless, there is fun to be had by everyone. The camp wraps on Sunday morning with worship at the host church. BIG HOUSE is a very busy and spiritually fulfilling 4 days for these junior high students.  Please plan to join us in service to others this summer!
