Red River Family Encampment Annual Event
This annual event for families began in 1987 and is held on the fourth Sunday of June each year. Attendance began with 400, and now averages 1,800.
It began as a dream of Harold & Sally Paden, Missionaries in Northern New Mexico (former missionaries to Italy). The first event was overseen by the Elders of the Southwest Church of Christ in Amarillo. Jerry Lawlis of Amarillo has served as the Executive Director each year since then, and puts on a wonderful event each year that thousands look forward to every year.
Prestoncrest minsters and members have been involved in several capacities over the years, not only by attending, but also by serving with songleading, teaching, and other jobs, as well.
