"Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, and nations who do not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and the Holy One of Israel; for He has glorified you."
(Isaiah 55:5)

Rancho La Alegría
Outreach and Training Center


Establish an outreach and training center on a working ranch where cowboys and others can come to know the Lord and His salvation; learn to walk in their salvation and take possession of their inheritance in Christ; return to their homes as leaven for the Kingdom of God.

Accomplished Objectives: Ranch property acquired October 8, 2004. See Ranch.

Current Objective: Build Bunkhouse, Arena, Residence. See Projects.

Future Operations:

  • Conduct schools and special events. Cowboys from throughout Mexico and Latin America come and stay for a period of time, during which they receive instruction from Christian cowboys in rodeo events, horse training, horseshoeing, etc., as well as in the Word of God.
  • Make the facilities available as a center for ministers' conferences and church retreats, offering spiritual refreshment, recreation and relaxation.
  • Use the ranch as a base for an evangelistic rodeo team to put on exhibitions nationally and internationally for the purpose of sharing the Gospel.
  • As a working ranch, to be a financial blessing in three areas:
  1. To become a ministry which is self-supporting.
  2. To provide finances for sending Spanish-speaking cowboys throughout Latin America to preach the Gospel.
  3. To provide financial support for other ministries.
