Weldon says, "Working with youth
has been a privilege in my life beginning with Cub Scouts
while I was a Boy Scout."
His commitment to the youth of
America has led him into volunteer leadership roles with
youth as a sponsor, organizer, coordinator and director of
church and community projects serving in some roles for more
than a quarter of a century.

as leader of boys' mission program for Baptist churches for
30 years; as director of Jr. High Sunday evening Training
Union; as companion for teenage boys on mission trips
in Texas and other states to assist building new churches, a
cabin on a Christian Ranch in Alaska, and dormitories in

Choirs for more than 30 years accompanying them on several
over-seas tours, as coordinator for church volunteer
programs to work on church missionary homes, facilities and
lodges, counselor at Leadership Training Camps and weekend
campouts, as accompanying sponsor for youth volunteering
with World Changers and Texas Challenge to assist with home
repairs for less fortunate families and as mentor by mail
with incarcerated youth throughout Texas.
For over 10 years Weldon has
served as part-time and then full time volunteer coordinator
