Flying P Ranch Purchase Proposal
Director of Missions: Richard Ray

June 2, 2017

Subject:  Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Retreat Center Purchase Proposal

To:  Pastor and Church Congregation

Enclosed you will find the Promotional Material for the Purchase Proposal that was presented to your The Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Board for the purchase of the Flying P Ranch located at 950 CR 227, Hico, TX 76457. 

The Ranch includes a 9500-square foot Lodge featuring:  16 Bedrooms (Sleeps 3-4 per room, 48-63 per lodge), 2 VIP Room with private bath,
8 Restrooms, Dining Hall, Great Room, 2 Kitchens, Laundry Room, 2 inside Sitting Areas, Gift Shop, Exercise Room and Office.  123 acres of land surround the Lodge along with 8 RV Hook-ups, Gun Range, outside Restrooms, Storage and Garage area.

The owner who is a member of one of our Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Churches has offered the Lodge and 123 Acres to Tri-Rivers Baptist Area for $420,000.00.  (The original list price was $525,000.00). 

The Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Board visited the location and it was decided to pursue the purchase of the Flying P Ranch inviting individuals and churches to invest in the purchase creating the Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Retreat Center.  This Retreat Center would provide each supporting church in the Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Free access of the Retreat Center for such ministries as: Camps Youth/Children/RA/GA, Church Retreats, Staff Retreats, Men/Women’s Retreat, Minister & Family Getaway, Banquets/Receptions, Missionary House, Domestic Violence Safe Place, Support Group Setting, Ministry Training, Etc.

Please look over the Promotional Materials and let the Lord speak to your heart.   You may also view the Virtual Tour and Promotional Material on our Website: under the “Flying P Ranch” Tab.  

I have listed below dates for each pastor, church member and possible investors to come and View/Tour the Lodge and Property for yourself. 
All donations/investments are tax deductible and due by July 27, 2017.

I believe the Lord has provided an opportunity for Tri-Rivers to come together as a Brotherhood of Churches to invest in our future that will enable churches in years to come to minister to more children, more youth and more adults without the cost of renting a facility.  This will allow churches to be better stewards of God’s resources and will provide additional opportunities for ministries that will impact the Kingdom of God.

If you need additional Promotional Material, have any questions, or would like for me to come and speak to your church concerning this proposal, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Please take the time to come and View/Tour the Flying P Ranch and let the Lord speak to your heart.  If you cannot make a visit on any of the following tour dates please contact me to set up a tour of the Ranch at your convenience.
