New Life Ranch exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to equip believers for ministry.

NLR offers a range of programming and services to youth, families, schools, organizations, and churches.

NLR is located in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains of Northeast Oklahoma. People come to NLR from all over, although most of our campers come from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri.
