Why we do what we do

Our Mission

The “Crossroads at Panadero Ranch” is a Christ-centered non-profit organization designed to provide deserving children with the opportunity to experience the love of our Lord Jesus Christ through a quality outdoor experience. This quality experience will involve Christian mentoring, encouragement and presenting the Gospel to them, with the hope of glorifying Jesus Christ and enlarging our Father’s kingdom.
