We welcome our newest Elders, Greg and Sandy Crawford!
Greg and Sandy met in junior high school and married shortly after Sandy graduated from high school. They have spent most of their married life in West Texas with a short 10-year stint in the Houston area. They have been married for 43 years and have raised three adult children and five grand-children. They live in Dunn, Texas but their Shul is in Westbrook, Texas. They founded COVENANT RANCH MINISTRIES (in 1992) and began ministering to the working cow-men and women of West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. Their ministry began while cooking out of an authentic working chuckwagon, where they faithfully feed the body with good food and bring 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 their quest for truth, such as “what are the commandments that Yeshua/Jesus requires our obedience to?” They turned to rabbinic sources and were surprised at the simple answer no one else could or would answer, TORAH. They began this Walk of Faith in earnest in 2000. They were hooked.
Knowing the TANACH was the Word made Flesh, they began observing the Feasts and consequently Torah. They have never looked back. Their first tour of Israel in 2016, left them thirsty and hungry for more of The Land. Subsequent pilgrimages have allowed them to visit a part of themselves they left behind on the first tour and to expand their quest for a richer understanding of Scripture. Texas may be their residence but their home is Israel.
They began conducting Shabbat Services at the Price Daniel Unit in Snyder, Texas (a medium security facility) in August of 2017 after their regular Shabbat Services at COVENANT RANCH FELLOWSHIP in Westbrook, Texas. Through their efforts, they hope to establish Messianic Services in every medium security facility in Texas before their 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. They strongly support Israel and believe that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those whom curse Israel will be cursed.
