Description Please plan to join us for our fifth annual East Coast Ranch Ministry Clinic and Fellowship!

We have compiled a lineup of amazing speakers from as far away as Pennsylvania and Florida to share their wisdom, experience and inspiration with all of us called to participate in similar ranch ministries. We will have founders, leaders, volunteers and directors from similar ranch ministries speaking and teaching throughout the weekend. Topics will cover all aspects of ranch ministry management, inspiration, horse training, fundraising, marketing, working with children, spreading the gospel, and so much more.

The goal of this event is to bring together people actively participating in a ranch ministry or any kind of Equine Therapy, as well as individuals interested in finding out more about ranch ministries or horse related rescue and wellness programs. We hope to share ideas, educate, network and shoulder with each other in prayer and fellowship over the weekend.

Our 2019 event is being held at the wonderful Shepherd Youth Ranch in Creedmoor, NC. Shepherd Founder and Executive Director Ashley Boswell and her team will be speaking on many fantastic and unique programs they offer at their ranch. In addition, we are blessed to be hosted at the nearby Hope Reins of Raleigh for our Saturday night BBQ dinner! Hope Reins is only 20 minutes away from Shepherd and has invited us all over to share their ministry and ranch with us.

This event is being organized by Alison Boyd of Wings of Hope Ranch (VA) and Patti Bryan of Walk on Water Ministries (FL).

COST: The cost for the 2-day event will be $149 per person and includes 2 full days of education, fellowship, lunch and snacks on Saturday, lunch and snacks on Sunday and the special BBQ at Hope Reins on Saturday evening. After August 1, 2019 the price will increase to $179.00.
