Casey Baker

Casey joined the Prairie Star Ranch family in March of 2020 by the grace of God and his families answered prayers.  Casey grew up right here in the country next to the ranch riding horses and running cattle when he wasn’t attending church.  His passion for taking about his faith in God, bringing others to a renewed relationship with Christ, and love of horses and the outdoors make him profoundly grateful to be able to serve in this capacity.  His leadership experience and machinist background will be a great addition to the team to help wherever is needed to continue bringing others to Christ!  Casey has been married for 10 years and has three children that you’ll probably see on the ranch helping out, looking for their opportunity to serve. 

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.
