IMPACT. What does this word mean to you? For us, it is what God has called us to do within our community through making disciples and serving others. This is why it’s the name of our annual leadership conference.
Get further equipped and encouraged to carry out the transformative work to which God has called us as one unified team around the globe. Collaborate on best practices and hear powerful speakers train key discipleship topics.

Rock Climbing Challenge yourself on one of three 45-foot high rock wall faces. Follow a route or create your own and give the cowbell a ring at the top to let those below know you conquered the wall.
The Screamer Go as high as you would like while holding onto your release on this big human swing. Once you let go, you will see where we get the name.
Zipline Zip across the 903-foot long cable which spans the width of Lake Ted. The climb up to the platform from which you jump is just half the fun. This exhilarating ride sheds new light on taking your breath away. Gliding across the beautiful lake is a view you can get only from Balcones Springs.
Quick Jump Put gravity to the test and you take a step off the edge of their newest high ropes element tower.
Rainbow Serpent Dive headfirst into the colorful netting as you descend 45 feet from a new tower.
Lake Ted Lake Ted is a private, spring-fed lake. If you enjoy swimming, fishing or canoeing, Lake Ted provides a tranquil, secluded area for these activities. There are two points to launch from: the floating dock (or Lowline Bridge) that connects the main property to Balcones Beach and the blob dock just below the Big Thicket. We also have water toys such as: the Blob, a water trampoline, Bermuda Triangle slide, a rope swing, and our 75-foot long, 30-foot drop water slide that we lovingly have called “The Wedginator”
Take Aim If you would like a challenge in marksmanship we have a riflery, skeet, and archery range where you can test your accuracy (equipment provided).
Riding We provide trail rides throughout the rolling hills of wilderness on our property to the shores of Lake Travis. Whether you’re an experienced equestrian or a first-timer, our trail rides are for anyone who likes to adventure in the great outdoors. (additional cost)
Outside of the facilitated activities, numerous other activities include: Tennis Courts, Sand Volleyball Courts, a covered and lit Basketball Pavilion, Baseball Diamond, Soccer/Football Field, 18-Hole Frisbee Golf Course, Fishing, Ping Pong, Tether-ball, Gaga Ball Pits, Canoes, Kayaks, and Paddleboards – all of which equipment is provided on-site.
The conference is alcohol free. Linens and towels provided.
Note: purchased tickets are not refundable but are transferable through coordination with Faith Rx’d.
