Mexico missionary, Mexico mission team and Rio Grande Valley church focused, we serve in practical ways by providing lodging on a short-term basis. Melody Lane is here to serve you so your Mexico mission plans are fulfilled and Christ is glorified. Our goal is be “First Class” in the way we operate this Ministry.

If you are a missionary needing a place to stay when coming and going across the Mexico border with clean affordable housing for you and your family; you’ve found the place.

If you are a mission group/organization seeking a place where you can all stay in a safe and clean environment that also supplies cooking facilities as well as dining/meeting areas; you’ve found the place.

If you are a local church desiring to plan a retreat where you can have private areas for cooking and dining and private areas for your meeting; you’ve found the place.

If you have a recreational vehicle and are looking for a place to stay as a Winter Texan or just traveling through the area; you’ve found the place.




Serving the needs of missionaries, mission organizations, and churches by providing short-term lodging, retreat facilities, and recreational vehicle sites since 1989, Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center was founded by Neal and Audrey Dorsch. Neal and Audrey were retired wheat farmers from Colorado and had devoted themselves to serving the Lord in this very unique way. Audrey went home to be with the Lord on November 20, 2011. Neal is still active and involved in the Ministry. Their daughter, Nancy King, now heads the Ministry.

We at Melody Lane invite you to become a partner with us as we serve. Every time you stay with us you help us to provide for our missionaries that serve in Mexico and beyond by providing a place of rest for a very low charge as well as providing mail service for them. Our desire is to have you contribute into the future of this Ministry so we can grow together and become all God wants us to become. When you stay here consider that this is your Ministry as well and not just a place to rest your head as there are lives being impacted by the "Good News" from this location every day.

There are current construction/equipment needs to be met that you or your church/organization may like to take either a small or large part in developing.
  • The outside pavilion kitchen needs a patio covering over the deck to protect food service from the weather.
  • We would like to build another dorm or two so that we can accommodate more than two or three groups at the same time.
Please prayerfully consider if the Lord is calling you to partner with us in these plans. All contributions are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center  is now managed by Dave and Sharon Sachs who live on site in their 5th wheel trailer. They serve as full-time volunteer managers having committed to serve this Ministry because they believe the Lord has called them to this place. They are now into their ninth year at Melody Lane. Be sure to meet their very friendly and lovable golden retriever named Tucker who loves to greet everyone.

The Ministry began on Melody Lane in the City of Mission, TX, but Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center has been relocated to a former recreational vehicle park (formerly known as Texas Rose RV Park) in the community of Palmview, TX. At the new location there is room to grow as well as being private and secure; we can now accommodate somewhere around 190 persons depending on the male/female ratio.
