We provide a place for pastors and ministry leaders to come together for encouragement, renewal, and rest.


We understand the burdens of the ministry lifestyle, and desire to help as many pastors and church leaders as we are able. 


Our team is made up of experienced pastors and counselors with a personal desire to help and encourage others who have been affected by the burdens of ministry. We are a team of friendly, caring staff who are excited to join you in your journey to restoration and renewal.

My desire is to see those who are struggling in ministry to have a place to get away and find rest, encouragement and help.

Jim Daniel is the President and Executive Director of Still Waters Renewal ministry for Pastors, Missionaries and Church leaders.  Jim has served as a pastor for 40 years.  He is the founding pastor of Fairfield Baptist Church in Cypress, Texas where he served for almost 29 years.  He moved to El Dorado in March of 2019 to begin a revitalization effort as Senior Pastor of East Main Baptist Church, and they currently live in Lubbock, Texas serving as an interim pastor. Jim and his wife Carla have been married for 37 years.

It was put on Jim’s heart to start a retreat ministry for pastors, missionaries and church leaders.  Jim and Carla have been running Still Waters Renewal going on 3 years now, and love connecting with the guests and being a kind, listening ear amongst peers.

I am passionate about creating a welcoming atmosphere for all of our guests. We want everyone to feel comfortable and to get the most out of their visit.

I hope to help others find their way to our retreats for a week of renewal, focused on mental health, through marketing. I maintain the website to help make it easy for guests to learn about our mission and sign up for a retreat!
