Who: Anyone who wants to come celebrate with us!
What: Reconnect, reflect, remember. The weekend will include music, fun activities, and replays of classic Ranch skits. More details to follow.
When: Sept. 18-20, 2020
Where: Christian Encounter Ranch
Why: Celebrating our 50th anniversary and reuniting with former students, interns, and staff.
Remember the miracles?
We all have stories of miraculous provision, of miraculous transformation that we witnessed during our time at Christian Encounter. We’d like to compile these stories to be shared at our 50th anniversary celebration. Please take some time to detail those memories and email them to Marion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They came to California from every state in the Union—from Maine to Oregon and everywhere in between—and many landed at Christian Encounter Ranch. It was the early ‘70s and most were unkempt, “aromatic” hitchhikers: girls in bell-bottom pants, Beatle-haired guys, and guitar-strummin’ folk singers— and no one knew quite what to make of the unbridled young hippies. They were in the midst of a revolution, seekers of freedom and excitement, rejecting everything conventional and valued by their parents.
