The Mission of Bear Creek Ranch is to EQUIP the saints by Engaging Brokenness, Quickening Relationship, Unearthing Identity, Instructing Servant Kings, and Pursuing Jesus' Mission of Luke 4:18.
Engaging Brokenness… The Saints are broken and we engage that brokenness with deliverance and inner healing.
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Psalm 51:17)
Quickening Relationship… The Kingdom of God is all about relationship. We are committed to reconnecting and healing the relationships with self, with others, and with God.
“’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…’ and the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22: 37-39)
Unearthing Identity... The King of kings is revealing His True Identity. As we discover our identity, we become the fodder for spiritual giftings for the benefit of all.
“For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.” (1 Corinthians 12:13-14)
Instructing Servant Kings… Practical training and coaching is essential to healthy Kingdom living. As a family of servant kings, we get our own revelations through asking questions and retraining the mind in upside-down Kingdom thinking which leads to healing for the Spirit, Soul, and Body.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
Pursuing Jesus’ mission… As servants to the King of kings, we are dedicated to fulfilling each portion of Jesus’ stated mission.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted,To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed. (Luke 4:18)

Becoming a Team Member
Interested in deliverance ministry? Join the Bear Creek Teams for the next retreat. Some team members participate monthly or every other month, and some come a couple of times per year. It is up to each team member how often they participate.
All team members must have undergone Prophetic Deliverance and attended the Deliverance Training Retreat.
One week before each retreat the Team Coordinator sends out an email. Contact the coordinator to be added to the list: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many folks want to return to a Deliverance Retreat to hear the teachings again to find deeper revelation. Some return with friends who are attending a retreat. Anyone who previously attended a Deliverance Retreat at Bear Creek Ranch may return free of charge as alumni.
Alumni registration is free but we do accept donations. Please contact the office to notify us that you will be returning.
FOOD & LODGING
Food and Lodging is currently the responsibility of each attendee. See the Accommodations page for current location information.
