Our Mission

"To make the most of Bible preaching for the benefit of churches and the people they seek to reach."

We live to:

  1. Reach people with the gospel. (Good News: You can have eternal life.)
  2. See Christians return to Bible truth.
  3. Help marriages be strong and children to turn out right.
  4. Influence the next generation of Christians to live “sold out” to Jesus Christ.

To fulfill our mission, we seek to reach people through:

Camp

We are building a new facility to accommodate seasonal camp events which provide a revival atmosphere where campers and churches from across the West meet to recharge. Our goal is to grow incrementally as we have already begun having camps on our newer Williams, Arizona, site.

West Branch on the Move Events

These take many forms, including  marriage and the home conferences, ladies spring getaways, and youth conferences.

Local Revival Meetings

Local church revivals were our first outlet. The Bill Rice Ranch's founder, Dr. Bill Rice, was an evangelist who conducted revival meetings in local churches and in public venues across the country and around the world. We continue to actively promote evangelists who encourage local churches through revival efforts.

 

C.A.M.P. - Controlled Atmosphere for the Ministry of Preaching

We seek to create the most favorable atmosphere possible for preaching.

Local Church: "We want to make the most of the local church."

  • Groups come to camp as a church.
  • Groups stay together at camp as a church.
  • Groups compete as a church in the teen camp program
  • Groups are encouraged to bring adults to camp who work alongside our staff to counsel the campers from their church.

Camp Program: "We want to make the most of the camp program."

Bible preaching dominates the focus of our program. Our goal is to consider each activity, schedule, and the development of the new camp facility by the same criterion: how will it help the preaching?

Staff: "Bible preaching is the very reason for the counseling our staff give at camp."

Counseling is important precisely because of the way it complements Bible preaching. When an atmosphere is conducive to preaching, such preaching provides the very opportunities we seek in order to answer the questions campers have. We do not counsel primarily to find problems; we actively counsel to resolve problems revealed through the preaching of God's Word in the power of His Spirit.

Time: "We want to make the most of time."

  • We want to start camp as early in the week as is possible.
  • We want to create as many effective preaching opportunities in the week as is possible.
  • We want to schedule the services in the best time slots possible.
  • We want to start each service on time every time.
  • We want every moment in the service to glorify the Lord and focus attention on what He has to say.
  • We want to use every moment between services to encourage campers to have fun, and be refreshed, alert and open-minded.
