This was our prayer and God did answer in miraculous ways!

 "For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
Ephesians 3

Trinity Pines had a phenomenal summer with many lives changed and wonderful growth of both staff and guests.

We will share more specifics throughout the fall about all the ways God blessed Trinity Pines' ministry in Summer 2014.

One huge blessing was the completion of our newest lodge. We hope that the photos and information below encourage you. We extend our sincerest gratitude to all who had a hand in the design, funding, construction of and prayer support for this incredible new resource.

Williams Lodge was dedicated at Trinity Pines on August 19th. The Celebration Service was a testimony to the ministry and impact that the lodge's namesake, Tom Williams, has had throughout his years of service.


South Main Baptist Church Senior Adults have held their Fall Retreat at Trinity Pines for over 30 years and Tom Williams faithfully served as South Main's Senior Adult Minister since 1989. When members heard that the new lodge was in need of funding and a namesake, generous donors from that ministry stepped in and proudly sponsored the Williams Lodge construction.


Trinity Pines and South Main have long enjoyed a wonderful partnership. Many of our facilities are connected with South Main's ministry including: Chafin Lodge (Pastor Ken & Barbara Chafin), Lott Worship Center (Harold & Bobbye Lott), Lee Lodge (Howard Lee and Sarah Lee Cole) and a number of others.


South Main Baptist Church of Houston, Trinity Pines volunteers, and family and friends of Tom Williams enjoyed a beautiful service and fellowship as we celebrated God's provision and goodness and Tom's faithful service.  


The service was held in the MHS Worship Center and guests toured the Williams Lodge throughout the day. An Ebenezer was laid by individuals as they entered the lodge.


"Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, 'Thus far the Lord has helped us.' " 

 1 Samuel 7:12 (NKJV)


The reviews of the Williams Lodge are wonderful so far and its opening and availability have already positively impacted our guest attendance.


Here are some of the Williams Lodge photos and the information on our website.

Again, we are truly grateful to all of those who have contributed time, money, and resources to prepare this beautiful new option for our guests. With 8 rooms and 7 beds in each room (1 queen bed and 3 bunk beds), this is a wonderful option for all sorts of groups and ages. We are currently taking reservations for it and all of our facilities through 2015.

We are eager to announce that Trinity Pines has broken ground on a new 24-bed Dorm/Group House. It will serve as a Dorm for either our male or female staff in the summer and as a Group House available for rental from Sept - April. This new facility will contain 4 rooms, each with a private bath and 3 sets of bunk beds.

Please join us in praying that the process from financing to construction all proceeds as planned.


Trinity Pines opened in 1980 and is owned by the Union Baptist Association. We are currently funded by: 

1) Guest fees
2) Donations of individual supporters.
