F.A.Q.

  • HOW OLD MUST I BE TO ATTEND?  

Students must be between the ages of 18-25  to attend any Wilderness Ministry Program.

Children under the age of 18 may attend Wilderness Ministry events (work days, church organized discipleship or event) with parent/guardian or adult youth leader with no more than a 6:1 ratio.

 

  • HOW LONG IS YOUR PROGRAM?

The student programs offered at Wilderness Ranch are split up into 2 week intervals called “FAST.” Students have the option of attending more than one FAST and can even attend the full 2 month term called, “SUMMER FAST.”

 

  • WILL THE STUDENTS BE FASTING FOOD?

NO. The name of our 2 week intervals describes the act of fasting from the distractions that can get in the way of spending time with God. Distractions like social media, texting, television, radio, and cell phones are examples of what students will be fasting from at Wilderness Ranch.  

 

  • HOW MUCH DOES THE PROGRAM COST?  

Each 2 week interval is $500. This includes all meals for the students’ FAST at Wilderness Ranch. If interested in our 2 month SUMMER FAST please contact us for pricing and details. 

 

  • HOW CAN I APPLY FOR AN INTERNSHIP? 

Contact us via email with your information and for more details on how to intern with Wilderness Ministries.

 

  • WILL THE MISSIONS TRIPS GO OVERSEAS/WILL I NEED A PASSPORT?  

Yes, some missions trips will go overseas, and therefore require a passport. Any overseas missions trips will specify what will be needed after the application is presented and approved. 

 

  • HOW CAN I SPONSOR A STUDENT?  

Please contact us so that we can provide you with a student name in need of sponsorship. If you already know of a student in need, please include the full name of the student on the memo of any check you wish to send.  

 

  • IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, HOW FAR IS THE NEAREST HOSPITAL?  

The nearest hospital is approximately 90 minutes away. However the nearest clinic is approximately 30 minutes away from Wilderness Ranch.

 

  • WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN THE EVENT OF A NATURAL DISASTER OR EMERGENCY?  

Programs and events would be cancled. In such situations we will do our best to communicate to the student and his/her family as to the precautions made. Students will be sent home from any Wilderness Ministry Program or Event if such consequential precautions are required.

 

  • CAN I PAY WITH CASH, CHECK, OR CREDIT CARD?

For now, we will only accept payments in the form of a check. Once other payment methods are availble we will specify on our website.

 

  • HOW ARE FUNDS DONATED BEING USED?

All funds donated are used to sponsor more students and future disciples who are struggling to find support, and on the materials to continue improving the facilities.

Yes, their will be allotted times in which the students may use phones and internet to communicate with family.
