Cross Water Outfitters

Crossing Many Waters and Representing the Cross of Christ


Cross Water Outfitters is a fishing ministry based in Central Texas and specializes in jug-fishing for all species of catfish on local Central and East Texas area lakes. Our mission is to reflect the Love of God and Jesus Christ to men and their families through enjoying the great outdoors.

Our main mission is to work as a ministry with US Army veterans who have recently served in Iraq and Afghanistan by introducing them to local fishing excitement and the simple Gospel message. We also host “Friends and Neighbors” events for civilians and others looking to have an new enriching experience with God in Christ.  Feel free to browse our website and contact us for more information about our upcoming events!
