By His Design Ministries (BHDM) is a Texas based, 501(c)3 not-for-profit, Christ-focused ministry. BHDM is the parent ministry that oversees Warrior Week and Girls Getaway.
In 1976, a group of women from Reinhardt Bible Church started a week-long summer camp for the girls who had been attending the Wednesday night Pioneer Girl program. What they began was a legacy of wonderful memories, life-long friendships, and a deeper relationship with the Lord for hundreds and hundreds of girls. I doubt they knew the impact it would have, and continue to have for decades.
Fast forward to 2003. Ellen Loveless and Meredith Wiskur, who had both experienced Pioneer Girl Camp as campers growing up wanted their own daughters to experience the camp as well. So they revived and revamped the camp that they experienced as children into Girls Getaway. Shortly after, the Lord stirred a common desire in the hearts of their husbands, Jason and Matt, to begin a similar (but totally different) camp to build into the lives of boys. By His Design Ministries, Inc. was founded in 2005, and the ministry’s first official camps were in the summer of 2006.
Since then, God has continued to bless this ministry with incredible experiences, strong friendships, and numerous lives that have been eternally impacted by the grace of God.
In 2017, the Loveless and Wiskur families handed the camps over to their current directors, Joey and Megan Williams and Phil and Courtney Collins (each of whom either attended or have direct ties to Pioneer Girl Camp). The Williams and Collins look forward to serving as camp directors for several years to come!

ABOUT THE DIRECTORS
Megan Williams and Courtney Collins are so fine. They so fine they blow my mind. Phil and Joey are just extraordinary humans.
The Collins and Williams took over as directors of Warrior Week and Girls Getaway in 2017. Their friendships extend back to their early childhood days. This camp was a part of each of their lives for about 25 years, and they simply want to continue to build on the great legacy of camps that have been before them. Through Girls Getaway, Courtney and Megan hope to build young women who are confident in who God made them and passionate about loving the Lord. Through Warrior Week, Phil and Joey hope to see boys become men by knowing and understanding the grace that God has given them as well as the call He has for them.
