Mission 19:14 is our camper scholarship fund. We use money from this fund to help kids and families come to New Life Ranch that might not otherwise be able to because of financial reasons.
Mission 19:14 helps to fund three ministries at New Life Ranch: Summer Camps (Summer Camp, Leadership Development, & Day Camp), Family Camps, and Community Ministries.

Ranch Hands are monthly donors supporting the Mission 19:14 Camper Scholarship Fund. Ranch Hands' year-round support toward camper scholarships helps create sustainability and predictability for camper scholarships. Monthly gifts make a huge impact over the course of a year--or many years!
The Ranch Hands Monthly Givers fund the Mission 19:14 Camper Scholarship Fund year-round. This fund helps bring kids to camp who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it.
For 2020, the average scholarship amount awarded was $500. This means a monthly gift of $50 helps bring a kid to camp every summer! A monthly gift of $100 brings a kid and their friend, and a monthly gift of $500 brings and entire cabin to camp!
Planned giving is exactly that. In the broadest terms, it is a method of supporting non-profits and charities that enables anyone to make gifts from their assets rather than from their income. By definition, a planned gift is any gift, made while living or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial strategy or estate planning.
There are basically 3 types of Planned Gifts:
As stated earlier, Planned Gifts enable supporters to make larger gifts than they could make from their income. Due to the nature and magnitude of these types of gifts, it can enable the organization to create a level of sustainability in the funding of re-occurring expenses such as scholarships or annual ministry operations support. Often, planned gifts can be designated to go to accounts such as endowments with the expressed intent of creating a long term benefit to the targeted organization.
Planned giving is often intimidating and confusing, regardless of the size of estate a person has. Statistics show that 85% of Americans over 50 don’t have a plan for the distribution of their assets. The good news is that New Life Ranch has an office that focuses on serving our donors to help them understand how to plan their estate to take care of their family, their finances, and philanthropy. This is a free, confidential service to our New Life Ranch friends. None of what you share with our planning office will be shared with us. If you would like to learn more about this service, contact Scott Shaw at 918-422-5506, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Just as Paul and Barnabas were set apart for the work God had for them to do in Acts 13, the Missionary Employees at New Life Ranch are sanctioned by God to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to equip and train others to do the same. Paul said, “… the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel” 1 Corinthians 9:14. Mary Magdalene and many more of Jesus’ followers contributed to the support of Jesus and the disciples out of their private means (Luke 8:23). Although Jesus turned water to wine, multiplied loaves and fish, and harvested a coin from a fish to pay his taxes, he chose to be supported by others as he went from town to town proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. Similarly, we have chosen to be supported by those who recognize the tremendous impact NLR has in spreading the good news, rather than significantly increasing our charge to those we minister to in order to cover all staff salaries.
As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on our fellow believers in Christ to support New Life Ranch’s ultimate goal to “proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, and equip believers for ministry”. This happens not only through personal relationships with one another, but also by donating time and effort to keep this “Valley Set Apart” a great place to gather.
It is the policy of New Life Ranch to honestly and accurately share with interested friends the challenges and situations we face in all areas of our ministry. We make known needs and potential solutions so friends can consider partnering with us through prayer and/or sharing financially as the Lord leads and enables.
We believe motivation for all true giving comes as God moves the hearts of people. Our part is to inform and give opportunity without imposing undue obligation or pressure.
