The Senior Pastors have plans to build a retreat center that will hold camps & retreats with a special emphasis on youth and ministers based on a vision that Rachel had from the Lord in 2015. Corky & Rachel held the first Youth Camp in the City in 2017 as a FREE outreach food program to the youth of Johnson County. During this youth camp, Rachel had another vision from the Lord about monthly youth rallies. In 2018, our church partnered with Paula Rayburn Ministries & held the first Youth Rally of Johnson County. The church also moved into a beautiful logcabin in the center of Alvarado, Texas which we believe to be prophetic symbolism for the future retreat.
