We are blessed to be a part of Renew Weekend at The Hills Church in North Richland Hills, Texas. Melinda and I have been members of The Hills since 1985 and we love our church.

Renew Weekend is a partnership with God to restore all things. The troubled will fine peace. The trafficked will find freedom. The poor will be viewed as valuable. The orphans and displaced will find families. And the unborn will experience life.


We know there are many great ministries associated with Renew Weekend. As you prayerfully consider how God will use you and your family, we wanted to point how you can give financially and to serve to help Our Father’s Children. Here are some opportunities:

  • Serve – We have many ways to serve including volunteering as counselors, helping with our mentoring program and being a part of the staff at one of our week-long camps or retreats.  We are also excited about Camp Akiva opening soon.  Camp Akiva will serve as the permanent home for our camps and retreats and so we need your help on our special work days.  To learn more about Camp Akiva, click here.

How will you participate Renew Weekend?  Consider giving and serving to change lives and provide hope to these children.
