Welcome to Paisano Encampment



Come, walk with Him

Located in the beautiful Davis Mountains of West Texas, Paisano Baptist Encampment is a 10 minute drive from both Marfa and Alpine. Family Camp (general encampment) meets each summer, the last full week of July. Camp officially begins with a Sunday evening worship service and ends with breakfast the following Saturday.
Families from all over West Texas (now from many states) have been gathering for a week of renewal and inspiration since 1915. Old timers used to camp in tents and eat meals prepared on chuck wagons. Now families stay in cabins or church dorms, and hearty meals are shared together in a huge dining shed, prepared by the kitchen crew directed by Chris Lacy of the o6 Ranch.
Worship and Bible study have always been the primary focus of the week. But in addition to spiritual renewal, Paisano provides opportunities to renew old acquaintances, make new friends, and reunite with extended family members.
These are hallowed grounds. You'll find God here. Come walk with Him.

John Frost

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.
