During the winter of 2006-07 I (Keely) read the books a Bridge Called Hope and Hope Rising, both written by Kim Meeder. These books are beautifully written, true stories that have occurred at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Bend, OR.
These books stirred me and awoke the deepest part of my soul as I dreamed maybe someday...Could I do this? Certainly not alone but as God has graciously invited me to do His work, Hope Hill Ministry was born September 2008.
I was blessed with the opportunity to attend an informational clinic at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in 2008 and again in 2011 with my husband Martin this time. Hope Hill Ministry has been blessed to lease a beautiful 20 acres from Fred and Inge Nordenhold in Beach Lake where all activities have taken place for the last 2 years.
Plans change...visions do not. I have seen Hope Hill Ministry change and transform into what it is today, a place where children are loved. Hope Hill Ministry is spreading its wings this year to include day camps as well as riding lessons, but the vision remains the same, share love & teach children.
hope hill ministry is a 501(c)3 organization
