Join us for a ladies night!

Meet Our Guest Speaker - Jennifer Dukes Lee

Jennifer Dukes Lee is the author of several bestselling books, including Growing Slow and It's All Under Control. She and her husband live on a fifth-generation family farm in northwest Iowa where they have invested a life in raising crops, pigs, two beautiful humans, and an enduring faith in Jesus. 

Garden Gate Ranch will be the recipient of our mission focus!

Garden Gate Ranch is a faith-based Christian organization providing safe housing and restorative and transitional services for sexually exploited women and their children.

Garden Gate Ranch seeks to rally our communities to ensure that all women are free from exploitation and abuse.

Your monetary gifts will be used to help GGR impact more lives affected by sexual exploitation.
