Building God's kingdom together


Together, Texans on Mission Builders bring glory and honor to God while assisting ministries that might not be able to afford these costs on their own.


Over the past 20 years, members have used their hands - and their tools - in the construction of more than 1,600 church and camp facilities, saving these ministries millions of dollars in construction costs.


There's a place for you 

Whether you're an experienced foreman or a hobbyist, there's a place for you on the Builder's team. 

What do you need to volunteer?

  • A desire to serve.
  • Some comfort with tools and a willingness to learn new skills.
  • A day, week or several weeks to work on a project. 
  • A place to stay (Texans on Mission can help with this, particularly with projects at camps).

Cabinet Builders volunteer Patsy Adair tackles new challenges with confidence

From beautician to bus driver to video store owner, 75-year-old volunteer Patsy Adair has faced many opportunities in life with strength and confidence. Her latest and greatest adventure has been in the TBM Cabinet Shop and at churches across Texas, where she has dedicated countless hours to carpentry for the last 22 years.

“I love my cabinet crew,” Adair said. “I’m glad we can help churches grow and be better churches in their communities.”

When she first began volunteering with TBM Cabinet Builders, Adair knew little about woodworking, but she did not let that get in the way of trying something new.  

“If you tell me I can’t do it, then you just watch me,” Adair said is the approach she takes to any new challenge in life. She became a beautician fresh out of high school, then a substitute teacher and bus driver for Brownsboro ISD – making history as the first female bus driver for the school district. She then tackled water and plumbing tasks for the family dirt-moving business. For several years following, she owned a video store then a monogram business. 

Once her husband Milton retired, they embarked on a new opportunity together and became volunteers first for Church Builders then Cabinet Builders. 

As the years go by, Adair admits the work is becoming a little more difficult but says she plans to, “keep on going as long as I can.”

When she’s not busy building cabinets, Adair enjoys making quilts, assembling puzzles and volunteering at her church and the Salvation Army.

To anyone interested in becoming a Builder volunteer, Adair said, “If you enjoy working with a Christian group, TBM is a good organization to get with. It’s great when you have a common goal together like our hereafter with the Lord Jesus Christ.”
