4:13 Ranch is a Christian Cowboy Ministry with a vision for glorifying God by impacting youth, families, veterans, caregivers and teams through the application of life lessons in and out of the arena.

Our mission is to create opportunities for connection, inspiration, and communication through the love of God and rodeo life.

“Maybe it’s the smell of the hay and the horses or the feeling of leather reigns in your hands, but being in a rodeo environment brings me back to a place where I have such a greater sense of roundedness, of being able to connect and pay attention. That’s what we want for the kids, the families, the teams, the caregivers and the veterans who come to 4:13. Our hope is to bring them to a place where all of the noise of life just gets quiet and all they hear is the gate opening and God leading them through.” – Brandy Gray

Creating treasured memories and valuable lessons will be priceless! To build our facilities requires the blessing of support. Will you help hold the reigns for the future of 4:13 Ranch?  Support Our Mission

What We Do

Our programs are geared toward strengthening faith and an appreciation for rodeo heritage and cowboy culture. Each program includes presentations and testimonials from revered rodeo names, small-group activities, reflection time, free-play, on-site lodging, and home-cooked meals. Who doesn't love hearing rodeo stories, waking up to the sound of cattle baying, swimming in the pond between sessions and having bar-b-que for supper?

Who We Are

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  — Philippians 4:13

How We Help: The Numbers that Motivated us to Saddle Up

0 minutes the average time American families spend in quality time together per day - NY Post. By leaving the phones in the cabin, enjoying team building activities and sharing joyful experiences, let's rope these families back together.
0 million caregivers provide unpaid care to an adult or child each year with 38% in highly stressful situations (ie. Alzheimer's Disease, severe Autism Spectrum Disorder, chronically ill parent or child) deteriorating the caregiver's physical and emotional health. Somebody needs a trail ride by the creek to recharge.
0 % of children leave church after they leave home at 18. -Lifeway Research. Our calling is to help our youth camp guests strengthen their faith so it leaves hoof prints on their hearts.

New Morning

The finches and meadowlarks are singing a welcome song from the oak tree that drapes along the fence line behind the ranch house. The horses share their alfalfa hay breakfast behind the stock pens. The sun brings light to the shadows of the creek bed while we reflect on the hospitality we have been shown…
