The Acorn Society

The Acorn Society Annual Forum is scheduled for June 2-4, 2017.

The Acorn Society is dedicated to planting the seeds of renewal at The Bishop’s Ranch. Come be a part of our efforts.

The Acorn Society exists to support the Ranch’s mission, and members of the Acorn Society are expected to advance the Ranch’s mission in the following ways:

  • Make a yearly gift to the Annual Fund
  • Participate in an annual forum on the Ranch’s future
  • Promote The Bishop’s Ranch to others
  • Actively participate in the life of the Ranch
  • Pray for the ministry of The Bishop’s Ranch

Participation helps ensure a vital center for renewal in the lives of generations of Ranch visitors.  Financial, physical, intellectual and spiritual contributions are all essential to the growth of the Ranch.
