The East Coast Ranch Ministry Clinic is a 2-3-day event focused on supporting similar ministries and offering education that is rooted in Biblical truths. The event includes worship and praise, meals, and educational sessions on ministry, programming, horse training, fundraising, and other related topics.
The clinic was created to connect people who are currently involved in ranch type ministries that bring people groups (children, veterans, special populations, etc.) together to share ideas, wisdom and fellowship. Often these ministries utilize horses, many times rescue horses, farm animals and related activities like art, gardening and woodworking to minister to their clients, to share the love and healing power of Christ.
The 2023 event will be hosted at Wings of Hope Ranch in Doswell, VA September 21-24, 2023. There will be 38 main clinic sessions led by speakers from all over the country and even AUSTRALIA! There will be 3 session choices per time slow besides the keynote, meal and Cowboy Church. You can view the schedule here.
In addition, we will be offering 7 optional pre-clinic intensive sessions on topics like horse training, business, and starting a ministry. Click here to VIEW the pre-clinic schedule and register.

ABOUT US: Let us introduce ourselves and our mission/vision: The East Coast Ranch Ministry Clinic and Fellowship was created to connect people annually who are currently involved in and running ranch type ministries that bring people groups (children, veterans, special populations, etc.) together to share ideas, wisdom and fellowship.
Often these ministries utilize horses, many times rescue horses, farm animals and related activities like art, gardening and woodworking to minister to their chosen people/clients specifically to share the love and healing power of Christ.
To be clear, our ministries and this event are focused on Christian ministry, never therapy. In general, we do not claim to be therapists or provide therapy in our ministries. There are some ministries in our circle (that attend or share at our events) that do in fact have licensed therapists who work at their ranches (whom we LOVE) but that is an exception to the rule. Our clinic focuses on education that is rooted in Biblical truths and supports similar ministries.
We annually plan a 2-day clinic/fellowship at a similar ministry, (sometimes with additional pre or post clinic events), that includes worship and praise, meals, and educational sessions on ministry, programming, horse training, fundraising, and other related topics pertinent to people serving in this way.
Since 2015 we have hosted events at Wings of Hope Ranch, VA (2015- 2017), Walk on Water Ministries, FL (2018), Shepherd Youth Ranch, NC (2019), No event due to Covid-19 (2020) Ready Yourselves Youth Ranch, PA (2021). The 2022 forward will be hosted where we began, except at our NEW Wings of Hope Ranch property!
The East Coast Ranch Ministry Clinic was created and is managed by Alison Boyd, Founding Director of Wings of Hope Ranch in VA and is considered one of their annual ministry events.
We look SO forward to seeing you in September! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
