Join us in this exciting adventure to bring Bear Creek Ranch home. We have our eye on several properties near Rockmart, GA and a couple near Canton, GA. Several of them have private lakes, buildings to house the retreats, accomodations for guest, and/or a commercial kitchen.
It has come to our attention that the property we were negotiating for closed in the first week of March. It is interesting that the Lord is still saying the same thing: Be steadfast. As we wait on Him, we are gathering twice a month to intercede together. Join us the first and third Thursday of each month to pray for Bear Creek via video meeting. (More info about intercession meeting here.)
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Update: March 15, 2020 – BCR held a board meeting tonight and have postponed several April retreats to comply with “social distancing.” We are remaining steadfast, even through this, that the Lord will sustain BCR. Keep us in your prayers as the quarantine gets underway.
While negotiating for a piece of property in Rockmart, GA, the communications suddenly stopped. We waited and waited for any news of our offer being accepted when we found out that someone else has made a cash offer.
We immediately went to the Lord confused, disappointed, and feeling like we didn't hear Him right. The only thing He said was: Be steadfast. Hold fast to His promises. Don't look at past histories. He's about to do a new thing.
So for now, we remain steadfast. Keep us in your prayers as we follow His leading.
What a delightful Christmas break and leap into a new year. A handful of people have already started giving to the project. We are so grateful for your love and willingness to support getting to the Ranch. We are discussing the housing options we will have on the property and look forward to throwing a huge party after we purchase land and move in.
We are picking up where we left off before Christmas break, and calling all of our friends to see if you'd like to donate to a down payment. We know the Lord is moving on this project and has already shown his hand of favor.
Meanwhile, keep us in your prayers as the Lord releases the funds to get there.
DREAMS, MIRACLES, AND FAVOR
The Lord has opened a door for us to step out in faith and begin negotiations for a beautiful piece of property here in Rockmart, GA. It all began with a dream, then another, and another. There has been one confirming word after the other for this land. So we made an offer! As we step out in faith, God is revealing how He is the one pulling this off and He is showing His miraculous favor in each step.
Can you help us acquire it? We’ve gathered a team of BCR volunteers to call everyone who has attended our retreats and invite each one to give. If you’d like, you can get a jump on things by calling us first. The Lord is weaving us together for his Kingdom purpose and it is amazing to watch it unfold!
Keep us in your prayers as this comes to fruition. What an exciting time to give!
THE JOYOUS MOVING FORWARD
Have you ever felt excited about the direction you were headed, but it came to an abrupt dead end? As you know, we purchased land last fall. We had every intention of building the Ranch, but we weren’t able to acquire a special use permit that would allow us to house our ministry there. Our Board of Directors decided it was best to sell the land and find another location. It sold quickly and the money we raised went back into the land account.
We've been praying about our next steps and have another property in our sights. Even though it has a higher price tag, it suits our needs far better than the previous property. We can pull off every aspect of the Bear Creek vision there.
We need to raise the rest of the down payment to get the ball rolling to make sure this property doesn’t slip through our fingers. Our development team is working on the different phases of construction and furnishing. I want to make sure you know that we are still moving forward, so you know how to pray for us and how to help us bring freedom and liberty to the bound and broken.
The next few steps we take will define the future of Bear Creek Ranch and I’d love for you to be a part of it. Give me a call or email me to invest in this vital Kingdom project. I'll post regular updates on our homepage and in our monthly newsletter as we move along. Or you can call us for a real-time update. We love talking about the exciting new direction we are headed.
We currently offer five types of retreats:
