There is a lot going on around the Park these days and we want to make sure you don’t miss a beat. Check out the following events and opportunities to serve:



Missional Partner Spotlight:

At the Park we partner with individuals and organizations around our city and the world to extend the great message of the gospel through words and actions. We pray for these partners as well as help fund many of their projects, initiatives, and personal needs. For a complete list of our current partners click HERE.


Kari Kurz is the local area director (Northwest) for YoungLife. Here is a little bit about the organization:
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.

We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.

DeFrees Family Mission Trip: 

The DeFrees family will join Real 4 Christ Ministries in Mombasa, Kenya July 12-24. Real 4 Christ is spreading God’s love in many ways in Africa. They have planted two churches, started a school that serves 300 students and share Jesus with people in neighboring villages. In addition, they have opened a feeding center, medical clinic and drill wells so that communities have clean water to drink.

The DeFrees’ are very excited and humbled to join their friends Chris and Lisa Moore (founders of Real 4 Christ Ministries) in being the hands and feet of Jesus in Mombasa and answering God’s call to go and make disciples.

If you would like to be a part of this opportunity we ask that you keep Real 4 Christ and the DeFrees family in your prayers as they prepare for the trip. Also, if you would like to help financially, please make checks payable to Real 4 Christ Ministries and give your donation to Bill or Pam at church or mail it to 5407 Stormy Trail, San Antonio, TX 78247.

Exodus Community Groups: Community Groups at the Park track with the Sunday sermons. Any time we start a new book of the bible we engage our community to find out if anyone would like to start or join a new group. Since community is a core value of the Park, we encourage everyone to get into a Community Group. You can find a current list of groups HERE.

If you have questions, contact Chris.
