Great Commission Training Center 18 Month Update!

So what's been happening at the Great Commission Training Center? A whole lot. We are in the middle of our 1st official ministry event at the "Ranch" - a week long apologetics and volunteer work week retreat. I'll be updating more pictures and video at the end of the week but for now, here are a few before and after pictures to give you a feel for where things are at. Note: the majority of what has been done has been "behind the scenes" - foundations being rebuilt, rafters being strengthened, an electrical system overhaul, a diversion dam, pond excavation, 5 new water cisterns buried, etc. These pictures just show the visible progress of the last 18 months of work at Three Trails Ranch.

Here is the front of the "headquarters" building 2 years ago.

Here is a picture of the interior of the 3rd floor of the headquarters building. It was just studs 2 years ago. The headquarters building should be fully completed within 3 weeks!

Those are the main buildings a lot of work has been done on. That's just a glimpse. Like I said, more will be up soon. Progress is being made and we can't wait for all God will do at the Great Commission Training Center. Thank you so much for all you've done to make this facility a reality!


  1. It is amazing to see the difference in the ranch in just a few years. I can't wait to see it when it is all done!

  2. It is so cool isn't it! Almost there!!!
