"Destined to bring hope & healing through Christ with horses"
Please consider becoming a monthly sponsor (or give a one time donation) for Destiny Youth Ranch. Any amount helps us to maintain our monthly costs at the ranch. We currently are involved in yearly outreaches at Red Lake Indian reservation, have helped homeless families, and helped victims of human trafficking and abuse. We offer yearly family retreats, women's retreats, kid's 3-day overnight camps, day camps, and invite Hope Haven clients out to be mentored and allow them to volunteer at the ranch.
Our main goal is reaching out with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and sharing the plan of salvation. Every year, 100s of kids, volunteers, and adults make first time commitments to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We also have many re-commitments to our Lord.
Join us in sharing the love of Jesus with hundreds of kids and adults every year and to help those who are in need. Thank you for considering to partner with this ministry. Just click on the donate button above to give a one time donation or to set up monthly donations.
Blessings, Pastor Corilee and Jason Boer
Destiny Youth Ranch is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Alvord, IA that runs day-camps, overnight camps for girls and/or boys (ages 7-17), and family retreats where you can learn more about God and horses in a quiet, small-town atmosphere!
We always have great speakers, worship, crafts, games, campfires, and of course... time with the horses! We teach very basic horsemanship (how to groom, tack, ride, and communicate with these amazing creatures), get comfortable with riding in an arena, and then get to hit the trail over 45 acres of land! :)
We are not affiliated with any specific church or denomination, but are a Faith-based organization.
Thanks for visiting! We hope to meet you soon.
