Pearl of Grace Ranch is a non-profit residential ministry dedicated to helping troubled teen girls. Matthew Gellenbeck has been mission minded since he was a teen, traveling with his grandfather to Mexico on numerous mission trips. As he grew older and married LouCinda the needs of children became heavy on their hearts and they became burdened with the need for a girl’s home in Oklahoma. They prayed the Lord would provide the necessary team to make it happen. In 2014, a small team started praying about this vision; believing in the great need for this ministry. We now feel that God has given a call and opened doors to begin this journey of hope to girls. We will provide a secure environment where the girls will be loved no matter what baggage they bring from their past. We pray that while at Pearl of Grace Ranch the healing process can begin for these girls as they see the love of God modeled and are mentored to have healthy relationships and live successful lives in the freedom that Christ can bring.
