Welcome To The Ranch!

Welcome to The Ranch, a spiritual retreat center, right here on the Internet.

If you’re tired, worn out, or need a boost in your faith, then you’ve come to the right place. This is a place where you can unwind, relax, and spend some time with God.

You can listen to music to clear your mind, read a book to lift your soul, watch a video to lighten your load, or ask for prayer to touch your life.

And for a daily dose of encouragement, we hope you’ll sign up for This Day’s Thought from The Ranch.  Each weekday we’ll send you an inspirational Christian quote, Bible verse, and occasional smile, and each weekend, we’ll send you an inspirational message to give you a boost in your faith.

Through it all, we hope to remind you that God is still here, He’s still alive and He hasn’t forgotten you.

We’re glad you came to The Ranch.  We think you will be, too.

“Since the day I subscribed to receive your daily thoughts, you have become a part of my life. You have no idea how much this has helped me keep myself organized when it comes to daily prayer. I’m a very busy person and often my work and/or other chores make it impossible for me to attend the Sunday service. Thanks to these daily quotes and weekly sermons my life is kept in shape. I’m Polish but I live and work in London, I’ve moved house so many times already and because of that I don’t belong to any church community. But you have given me that peace of mind and your emails often substitute my weekly service. Thank you so much for that and God bless you.”
