We have been privileged to host numerous volunteer groups & retreats and guests over the past month.


We enjoyed the Campers on Mission group who completed this awesome addition to our Dining Hall.
They also touched up and repainted several of the buildings around campus.  
The Texas Baptist Men Camp Builders and their wives are just completing their second project at Trinity Pines this fall. They have continued to work on the new 64-bed Lodge. This begins the development of the back loop of the Trinity Pines campus. Eventually there will be 5 total additional lodges.
 Both groups were amazingly productive and have assisted us in countless ways.
Ministry Needs Updates
The development of the
1,00foot path between
the Office/Dining Hall & the new Mary Helen Smith Worship Center was completed in 2013.This includes lighting, benches, walkways, retaining walls, and fountains. It was made possible by the generous donation of time by our volunteers and financial support of individual donors.    

Please pray about how God may want you to be involved in partnering in His work at Trinity Pines.

Harold & Phyllis Snipes 
This past summer, we were truly blessed to have Harold & Phyllis Snipes stay and work at Trinity Pines. They received their SOWER badges in December 2000 and worked their first projects in 2001.


Harold and Phyllis came to Trinity Pines as singles to a Union Baptist Assoc. Singles Conference in October 1985. As SOWERS, Harold and Phyllis came to work at Trinity Pines in March 2009 and we have been privileged to have them serve here at least one month each year since then. The only exception was in 2012 as the result of a severe accident in 2011. Read more

Thank you for the role that you, our volunteers, supporters, guests, friends, & prayer partners are playing in the continued effectiveness of Trinity Pines' ministry. Please continue to lift up our staff, retreat planners and guests, as well as our volunteers, that God would work in each of our lives as we seek to serve Him here at Trinity Pines.
