Women’s Conference 2016

Womens Conference Pine Cove

“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” Philippians 1:8 We were blessed to have over 250 women come to the Shores March 5-7 for our annual Women’s Conference. It was a blast getting to see women of all stages of life eat together, laugh together, and worship the Lord together. Cindy Hawks, a DTS graduate who is married to the pastor of Hill Country Bible Church in Austin, was our speaker […]

I will walk with integrity in my house…” Psalm 101:2 On the weekend of January 27-29, over 400 men from multiple churches, small groups, families, and communities gathered at Pine Cove’s Shores and Timbers camps.

MomLife Boot Camp 2014

Moms-at-Pine-Cove

On the opening night of MomLife Boot Camp, I prayed for great weather. In my mind that meant sunny and 75 degrees, but the Lord is much more creative. He sent a storm and then an amazing rainbow to remind us of His promise and His faithfulness. For the past three years, Pine Cove has had the opportunity to partner with MomLife Today to put on a life-changing event called MomLife Boot Camp. We had over 400 moms at every age and every stage from across the country come together at Pine Cove’s Shores and Bluffs camps. It was a […]

A Weekend Just for Moms

Mom_Life

What is it about Pine Cove? Something happens when you drive through the gates. You enter a new and unique world where peace reins, praise erupts and people meeting up with God is a priority. Sounds a bit like heaven. Interestingly, for our family, that is exactly how we see Pine Cove – the closest thing to heaven, this side of heaven. Long after our week of family camp has ended we comb through photos, remember moments of revelry and reflection and even shout out a cheer or two at the obvious appropriate moments. (If you’ve been there I know […]

Gingerbread Houses: Guys Versus Girls

Boys Gingerbread House

Winterfest was a blast! Maybe by now all of our campers have finally caught up on rest, because they were having so much fun over the weekend! There are several highlights that we could talk about, but let’s be honest: we know everyone just wants to know about the the Ranch Gingerbread Launch. We’ve known that guys and girls are different for a long time. But this year at the Ranch for Winterfest, the differences became even more clear. It became obvious early on that each gender was going to take a much different approach in construction, even with the […]

Britt Nicole at Camp

Britt Nicole in Concert

Pine Cove is thrilled to host Christian recording artist Britt Nicole as our special performer for Winterfest. Each year we invite an artist or band to come and perform in Tyler, Texas for the Ranch, Timbers, and Shores campers. This concert is a fun, high-energy highlight of this action-packed winter camp weekend. The concert will take place Saturday night, December 14th, and is exclusively for Winterfest campers at the Ranch, Timbers, and Shores. We want it to be small (about 300 people) so that our campers can hear not only Britt’s music, but also a little bit about what God […]
