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 allows anyone to make a substantial contribution to New Life Ranch — regardless of income or financial status. It is a way to level the playing field, giving everyone a chance to become a philanthropist and make a difference. And it provides significant financial benefits to you as well.
Some planned gifts provide lifelong income to the donor (yes, you read that correctly). Other gift plans significantly reduce taxes that would otherwise take a big chunk out of your loved ones’ inheritance — providing for both charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift while minimizing its impact on your estate.
In short, a planned gift is any major gift that is part of a donor’s overall financial planning.
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.
