About Texans for Christ

Texans for Christ is a student ministry that has been serving Tarleton State University's Stephenville campus since 1960. It is our mission to reach as many students as possible with the good news of the gospel. Over the last 60 years, we have been blessed to see students make life-long friends, young men and women meet their future spouse, and many lives completely transformed by God. 

Taylor and Whitney Holt

Campus Ministry Missionaries


Taylor and Whitney are both Tarleton graduates and were actively involved in the Texans for Christ ministry as students. They met each other on a Texans for Christ retreat and began dating shortly after. They have been leading the ministry since the fall of 2017 and have loved every second! Besides ministry, they enjoy sports, being outdoors, and spending time with family. Taylor and Whitney have two daughters, Lydia (4 years old) and Lora (1 year old), and a black lab named Gryffin.

Taylor and Whitney feel that their ministry can be summed up in Paul's words to the Thessalonians in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 -

"Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well." 


They love college students, and enjoy sharing their lives with them as they also work to spread the gospel to the Tarleton campus and beyond.
