Paisano Baptist Encampment
Alpine, Texas, January 9, 2012 - Paisano Baptist Encampment has hired John Frost of Camdenton, Missouri,
as the new Superintendent of Grounds. Following a recommendation by the search committee, the Board
of Directors voted to employ Frost effective February 1, 2012.
John and his wife Carolynn were Paisano General Encampment missionaries in 2003, having served with
New Tribes Missions in Papua New Guinea from 1998-2005. The couple has seven sons and actively
participates in various ministries. John grew up attending the encampment with his grandparents,
the late Jim and Anice Frost from Odessa. The family deeply loves Paisano, has continued to attend
regularly, and is deeply committed to the encampment's traditions.
An ordained minister with a BA in intercultural studies, Frost also has a professional background
in fire service, construction, mechanics, and administration. He has served at Camp Windermere in
Missouri and holds credentials as a firefighter and first responder (EMT), making him an excellent
fit for the Superintendant of Grounds position.
Paisano Baptist Encampment is located in Paisano Pass, between Alpine and Marfa, in far West Texas.
