Dale joined our Prairie Star Ranch team in April of 2019, as a man of faith and family. He served our country bravely in the United States Navy early in life and now works and loves to practice his art of woodworking.  He daily works to maintain and bring beauty to this place of grace, and you will always know him by his smile.

Current Retreat Team

Prairie Star Ranch offers an exciting opportunity to become a missionary for the New Evangelization through our Retreat Team Internship Program. As a member of the program, you will lead retreats, help out around camp and have the opportunity for great personal and spiritual growth. It is a wonderful chance to share your faith, build Christ’s Kingdom and serve others in a beautiful natural setting.
