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!

  • Team,
    This is the first formal communication for our upcoming Team Building event. I will need a response from anyone who is participating. Please note the participation restrictions below in the “Immediate Needs” section.

    What: Crosswater Outfitters Team Building
    When: February 9-11, 2018
    Where: Thunderbird Resort, Lake Buchanan

    Event Schedule:

    The event schedule will be posted in a future email.

    Immediate Needs:

    Please review your calendar and respond as soon as is reasonable whether or not you can attend and in what role (captain/deckhand). Note that this event will be for any team member who is currently serving or who has served with us at any past event, or who has committed to serve with us but hasn’t yet been able to attend. We will not be inviting guests to this event.

    We will try to cut off sign-ups no later than a week prior to the event so that John can finalize the lodging.
    Arrival Notes:

    Welcome briefing will start at a time to be announced later at the Event Center. Our current plan is to begin the event on Friday morning and proceed on a schedule similar to our Friends and Neighbors events. If other commitments will prevent you from arriving early Friday, note this in your response, but please make every effort to secure Friday for this event if possible.

    We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! It has been a blessing to serve with each and every one of you in CWO and to serve our soldiers who defend our freedom and make it possible to be able to tell others the great news of Jesus Christ. I pray each and everyone one of you take a time to reflect on the past year and also get ready for the upcoming year as we need to spread the word and the great news of Jesus Christ to everyone we can. Looking forward to a great year with each of you and may God Bless you and your families. ...
