New Land & New Soil

A Landmark Ministry Growth Opportunity

For the first time in the history of Shepherd's Fold Ranch, we have the unique opportunity to expand our physical footprint by acquiring the land and houses adjacent to our current property.

This expansion has allowed us to broaden our reach by providing additional programming and enhancing our summer camp and retreat offerings. Providing a place in the country where people can do business with God has been our mission since Don and Shirley Staires launched their first camp in 1972.

Shepherd's Fold Ranch equips generations to be
confident, Christ-centered, world-changing disciples.

This new land provides us with the space and resources needed to introduce innovative
programs and activities that will foster spiritual growth, leadership skills, and a
deepened sense of community.

Give to the
fertile Soil of SFR

SFR has already raised over half of the $205,000 needed to be debt free on this purchase!

Shepherd's Fold Ranch is embarking on a new chapter in our ministry journey and we are reaching out to you, our cherished supporters, with a vision that holds the promise of expanding our impact beyond measure.

We need to raise the last $95,000 by the end of the year to ensure we do not incur debt on this purchase.

The SFR Board of Directors felt this opportunity was an important step of growth for the future of SFR for two main reasons:

Property Security

We are able to continue to provide this anointed place of ministry for kids and can remove the risk of having developers who might pose a threat to the landscape and ministry programming.


The additional land has creekfront access and opens up more programming opportunities with local school programs needing an environmental science activity. This will generate more revenue in the off- camp season.

As believers in the power of Christ's love and the potential for transformation through faith-based experiences, we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. With your support, we can carry on being "A Place In The Country Where YOU Can Do Business with God" and continue to create an environment that nurtures the hearts and minds of young individuals, enabling them to become leaders who impact their communities and the world at large for generations.
