EMPOWERING CHILDREN WITH HOPE,
THROUGH THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST,
BY LEARNING, WORKING AND PLAYING TOGETHER
HIS Ranch is a Christian based youth ministry located in Taylor, Missouri. By calling it "HIS" Ranch, we make the point to remember that this little youth ranch belongs to God. We are here at HIS service to reach out with love and encouragement for every child that walks on the property. Our goal to empower children with the love and truth of Jesus and encourage life skills such as confidence and work ethic through one-on-one mentoring during each 90 minute lesson slot. All services are free of charge and may include horseback riding, crafts, gardening, wood-working, etc.
In the fall of 2004, Shannon and Susan Haerr began asking God how they could better serve His kingdom. After nearly 6 months of thoughtful prayer, they felt convicted to begin a youth ranch, a safe place where kids could hear about the love of Jesus in a hurting world. In 2005, HIS Ranch was founded. Now, over 10 years later, we continue to see God bless the vision of HIS Ranch.
Today, my husband Ben and I operate HIS Ranch. We met as volunteers in the summer of 2011, fell in love and got married in the winter of 2012. We are grateful to carry on this ministry that has played a special part in our lives as well as in the lives of many others. God is good!
We have been privileged to serve approximately 300 children each season. We currently partner with Transitions of Western Illinois, Quincy YMCA, Marion Co. Dept. for the Developmentally Disabled-Silver and Gold Camp, Quincy Christian School and Quincy Area Home School Group as well as a large number of individuals attending for private lessons. If you are aware of children or families that could benefit from our facility, please send them our way!
