Coyote Crossing Christian Ranch: Retreat in the Hills

We are blessed at NCM. Blessed by the riches of God’s love in Christ and by the generous supporters of this wonderful ministry that God has entrusted to us. Last week, the Next Chapter Ministries staff took a trip to Coyote Crossing Christian Ranch to have a staff retreat.

This beautiful ranch is owned by Paul and Cheryl Basballe, longtime NCM supporters, and is located in the grassy, rolling hills near Lake City, MN. The 200+ acre property serves as home to the Basballe’s, a grass-fed beef ranch, and a retreat with two cabins for guests.

Coyote Crossing has hosted NCM staff and participants on multiple occasions in the past. To this day, some of the NCM teen participants still talk about the adventures they had and the memories that were made on their trips there. The trip last week was an opportunity for all of us on the NCM staff to have some secluded and special time together and to tour this breathtaking ranch.

We want to say a big and sincere thank you to the Basballe’s and Coyote Crossing Christian Ranch for allowing us to enjoy their property and for being so hospitable to everyone, staff and participants, at NCM over the years. We look forward to making many more memories at Coyote Crossing Christian Ranch in the future!
