The Ranch is a venue for spiritual awakening, growth, and healing. Hundreds of men and women struggling with PTSD, both young and old, have found refuge and help at The Ranch. The Ranch sits on 540 acres of South Dakota prairie, about 20 miles southeast of Pierre, SD, right in the heart of pheasant hunting country.
In fact, our location is situated in an area known as the best in the world for pheasant hunting. Our ministry uses pheasant hunting as a keystone for helping veterans and for our fundraising. During the pheasant season, we host pheasant hunts for veterans, including those who are wheelchair-bound or have suffered other severe physical and mental injury.
But our ministries involve more than hunting. The Ranch relies on a variety of outdoor activities that veterans and others enjoy. Our ministries also focus on worship, prayer, fellowship, and meditating on God’s Word. All these things work to bring healing through Christ closer for each visitor.
