In 2012, I was looking to move out of the suburbs and purchase property in a rural area. I was presented with an opportunity to purchase the property I now live on. It has always been in my heart to have a place to meet the needs of today’s youth. During the purchase process, I made a commitment to God that if he would make a way for me to own this property I would give it back to him.
After acquiring 123 acres with 118 acres dedicated to the vision of Willow Tree Ranch I began to seek God about His plan. At the time, I really did not understand what was in my heart would look like. What began as a youth camp has expanded into something far beyond my expectations. The family is under attack, it is fragmented, it is hurting, it needs God’s grace and mercy to bring reconciliation, unity and healing. The heart of Willow Tree Ranch is to be a tool that God uses to begin the restorative process in families. When you view the conceptual plan you will see that we will offer something for all ages designed to appeal to all members of the family, creating memories and bonds that will last for a lifetime.
God never ceases to amaze me it is just like Him to give you something to accomplish greater than our own ability so we would have to use our faith and trust Him to fulfill the plan He has for you.
The foundational principles of Willow Tree Ranch is to exalt Christ by providing excellence and service in every activity based on leadership, service and stewardship.
