We always have a lot of projects going on so please check back, both for progress reports on projects of interest to you and to see what is new.
Brother Richard always used to say that the Lord loved a tent. From the tabernacle of witness where the children of Israel worshiped from the time of Moses until Solomon built the temple, the Lord bore witness to His love of tents. For many years, we had a 30′ x 50′ Revival Tent. It was a great blessing and we took it to many places through the country. After a few years off from an active tent ministry, we are now in the market for a new tent. A one-time $5,000 donation will be sufficient to purchase the one we have in mind. Our hope is to purchase the tent this Fall so that we can get it set up and begin working the kinks out with the goal of taking a team out on the road in the Spring of 2018.

Elijah’s School for the Prophets
Brother Richard always dreamed of establishing a school for the Prophets much like is implied in the ministries of Elijah and Elisha. One of the central elements of Grace Ranch is to fulfill this dream. This year, we are initiating our first class of students, drawn from the ranks of our ministry. In order to grow this training facility, we need to establish bunk houses for men and women. Utilizing a mixture of salvage and new materials, it is our hope to build an eight bunk dormitory for men (sleeps 16) and to convert our two bunk house (sleeping 4) into a dormitory for women. The cost to complete this project is uncertain, but is estimated to be around $10,000.00. If you would like to donate towards our bunk houses for students entering into training for the ministry, click here. Do note that we do not charge our students for their education, just as Jesus did not charge His disciples.
Grace Ranch Campground
This year we cleared eight camp sites for people to enjoy coyote camping (also known as boon docking). Our purpose is to provide spaces for those who may come out here for ministerial training and/or just to visit for a season (e.g. snow birds that we may come into contact with on the road). Since clearing the sites, we have had our electric service provider drop a pole to service the area. The next step is running electrical hookups from the pole to each camp site. While we do not anticipate running the sewer to the campsites yet, we will put the infrastructure in place to make it easier to add that later. The cost to conclude this portion of the project will be $2,500.00.
