Ed and Wendy Boring met while participating in a youth musical – “Show Me! Jesus!” – in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1972.

GREG AND SANDY CRAWFORD
Greg and Sandy Crawford have been married 43 years. Three adult children and five grandchildren. We met in junior high school and married shortly after Sandy graduated from high school. We have spent most of our married life in West Texas with a short 10 year stint in the Houston area.
Founded in 1992 by Greg and Sandy Crawford, COVENANT RANCH MINISTRIES began ministering to the working cow-men and women of West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. By cooking out of an authentic working chuckwagon, we have faithfully fed the body with good food and brought the Gospel of Yeshua HaMashiac (Jesus Christ) to feed the soul so that many who otherwise may not have ever tasted how good forgiveness really is, might feast on G-d’s Holy Word. Repeated questions of “spiritual leaders” remained unanswered in our quest for truth, such as “what are the commandments that Yeshua/Jesus requires our obedience to?” We turned to rabbinic sources and were surprised at the simple answer no one else could or would answer, Torah. We began this Walk of Faith in earnest in 2000.
We were hooked. Knowing the TANACH was the Word made Flesh, we began observing the Feasts and consequently Torah. We have never looked back. Our first tour of Israel left us thirsty and hungry for more of The Land.
We began conducting Shabbat Services at the Price Daniel Unit in Snyder, Texas (a medium security facility) in August of 2017 after our regular Shabbat Services at COVENANT RANCH FELLOWSHIP in Westbrook, Texas. Through our efforts, we hope to establish Messianic Services in every unit in Texas before our race is run.
COVENANT RANCH MINISTRIES is now a Shabbat/Sabbath keeping, Torah Observant Christian organization striving to be obedient servants of our L-rd Yeshua/Jesus. We strongly support Israel and believe that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those whom curse Israel will be cursed.
