Cranhill Ranch To Break Ground On New Multi-Use Ministry Center

BIG RAPIDS, MI – CranHill Ranch will host a Groundbreaking Ceremony for their new Multi-Use Ministry Center on Sunday February 21st, 2021 at 4:00pm. The ceremony will take place during CranHill’s annual Winterfest Community Openhouse event. The ceremony will feature brief comments from CranHill President, Scott Barger, an update on the status of the campaign, and a photo opportunity. Ceremony attendees are invited to stay afterward to enjoy the Winterfest activities and a free meal.

With over $975,000 raised towards their $1.4 million dollar goal, Barger is confident the funds will be there to finish the building. “We have come a long way from when our staff and board envisioned this project.”, Barger says, “We have been blessed by donors who have stepped up to help make this project a reality.” The funds raised so far have been donated by generous individuals and businesses throughout the Grand Rapids, Holland, and Big Rapids areas.

The Multi-Use Ministry Center will provide year-round indoor space for worship services, camp programs, community events, large meetings, and general recreation use. The Multi-Use Ministry Center will feature a stage with full audio and video capabilities, seating for over 450 people, basketball, volleyball, meeting spaces, and a front lobby for greeting campers and groups using the facility.

As the project enters the construction phase, Barger is calling on the community to help CranHill Ranch finish strong by donating to the project. “We are looking for folks who understand the importance of what CranHill Ranch does and who want to play a role in finishing this project,” Barger added, “Our staff, board, and donors believe this new building will be a catalyst for tremendous growth throughout our organization. Which in turn, will help us impact the lives of so many people throughout the Great Lakes region, through our family campground, summer youth and special needs camps, retreat group programs, and adventure experiences.”

 CranHill Ranch plans to have the building completed by late Summer or early Fall of 2021, just in time for Fall and Winter retreat season.
