Outback Texas participants find their lives transformed as they begin to develop an understanding of their life purpose, right from the very start of the weekend.
During the course of the 48-hour weekend, participants find their lives transformed as they begin to develop a daily strategy and an understanding of their life purpose, personal standards, and begin cultivating a Christ-driven life. Others find Outback the time for recommitting themselves to God and His purpose for their lives. In all, we find Outback a place where God heals and restores relationships.
Each weekend event brings together music and drama, recreation activities, team-building activities, and small group sessions – each designed around you.
In addition, your needs are met at every turn through great food, caring volunteers/guides, comfortable accommodations. Best of all participants are provided with simple ways to take the experience home for life.
From the initial ‘Welcome Team’ interaction through to helping you to your car at the end, it is an ‘adventure of a lifetime.’
