About The Ranch
The ranch is a beautiful 85 acre piece of property 30 minutes outside of St. Louis County. It is nestled in the rolling hills of Lincoln County with picturesque rock-bottom creek, mature trees, and a large lake. The property was first purchased by Bryan and Debbie Short in the spring of 1999.
They founded El Shaddai Ranch as a non profit, interdenominational, Christian camp ministry committed to furthering the Gospel of Christ among youth and families. For 17 years they sacrificially served as the executive directors, growing the ministry to where it is today.
