Updated March 10, 2021 – Join Like-Minded Christians. Invest in community living for prophetic end times in Northwest USA.

(A website dedicated to “Doers of the Word Ranch” will be coming soon. Please check back periodically for details.)

Dot W Ranch (an acronym for “Doers of the Word”) is a vision we have held in our hearts for many years. It is a community of believers living in a community together for the final years of the last days timeframe. Habakkuk 2:3 says, For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” We believe it is time for the culmination of this vision.

You are encouraged to read this vision below. To learn more and stay informed, request to add your name to our DOT W mailing list so you will receive news alerts as we progress. If your heart is stirred, please ask the Lord to direct you as to what part He would have you take in this endeavor. Gifts earmarked for DOT W Ranch will be used to help secure land in the Northwest as soon as is possible.


Are hard times coming?

Are hard times already here?

How can we doubt that “…In the last days difficult times will come.” — 2 Timothy 3:1

How would God have Christians prepare for such a time as this?

Many are sensing an urgency to prepare for what is ahead. Most Christians believe we are in the last days. But what should we do? First of all, let us not panic nor over react. However, let us plan and be prepared in case a “Peace Treaty” gets signed in the near future.

Undoubtedly, God is speaking to many across this county, and likely the entire world, to prepare. Prepare for persecution and the eventual reign of Antichrist. Whether now or later… it’s coming. And here in America and Canada it is becoming more apparent that persecution against Christians is already here and growing.

Just this last week, Pastor James Coates from Alberta Canada, was arrested for holding church service after being fined for holding a previous service. He was secretly whisk away by police, and his wife and family are unable to see him. He has been told that the conditions of his release include never pastoring again.

In like manner, churches in the U.S. are being targeted, burned, fined, and persecuted. Being a “Christian” is also being labeled a Domestic Terrorist.

Knowing what God’s Word tells us about the last days, these things are not unexpected. However, we are now coming to the realization that it is unfolding in this generation. With our current President in office, the United States is quickly becoming a hostile environment for Christians who desire to worship together, run a business, live their lives in community and fellowship together. Possibly you are concerned about being forced to take the vaccine, or the coming food shortages, hyper-inflation, violent unrest, or persecution for your faith.

God has spoken to us with an intense urgency. Throughout our lives, He has put certain aspects of a “Last Days” community on our hearts, but it was never time to activate it. NOW is that time! And there is urgency to do it as quickly as the Lord provides.

Dot W Ranch is the name of this Community… given to us by the Lord decades ago when He first planted the vision in our hearts. It is an acronym for “Doers of the Word.” God’s Word will be our plumb-line and the Holy Spirit will be our teacher and guide.

This vision has been developing throughout the last 30 years. We are absolutely committed to continuing to teach God’s uncompromising Word for as long as He allows—teaching more on the Last Days and Prophecy than ever before… in order to help prepare and train God’s people for what lies ahead.

What will Dot W Ranch look like?

Our vision is to prepare Christians spiritually, mentally, and physically for the prophetic and tumultuous end-times, while also providing a safe place to live and worship together.

Our “intentional neighbors” concept allows Christians to own adjacent lots within the community where they can build homes–live, work, and worship as a Christian Community. Also offer mutual support, resources and cooperation to our neighbors. Putting into practice “Loving our neighbor as ourselves” is not just a nice saying, it is how Jesus requires us to live.

Beginning right now, we are preparing to establish a Christian Community on acreage near our area that is private, secluded and able to sustain those who desire to:
* Live in community with like-minded Christians;
* Worship together without fear or hinderance;
* Regardless of what happens to the dollar, politics, or the food supply, we can remain self-sufficient through:
— being set up to live off-grid eventually;
— grow and raise our own food so that we have adequate and safe supply.

An example of Off-Grid or Prefab Homes that can be built quickly can be found at:
And of course, there are many other options as well.

There will be a centralized Community CHURCH for worship, prayer, meetings and activities. Our intent is to also hold periodic conferences on the Last Days, Spiritual Growth and Ministry while also providing “hands-on” training for those who desire to learn (gardening, livestock handling, co-opting, etc.) skills they can take back home to be better prepared and more self-sufficient.

The plan includes planting and managing a large joint garden, green houses, chickens, milk cows, and goats. There will be a large Community Barn to house livestock and supplies.

Those living in the Community will be expected to live and work together in unity of fellowship—supporting one another and helping to supply and protect the Community as a whole through collective work in the gardens, with livestock, provisions, etc.

This is a venture that the Lord is leading. It is far beyond our ability to accomplish this wonderful vision, but it is not too difficult for the Lord. We will see many miracles along the way as we trust in the Lord to accomplish His will through those He calls.

Are We in the Last Days?

We are aware of many other groups who are forming these types of communities right now in preparation for what’s ahead. If in fact, we are the final generation, destined to experience the Antichrist’s rule and persecution, if we are in the final years prior to the Rapture of the Church… then we desire to live and worship in peace and sufficiency and be prepared to meet the Lord when He returns for His Bride.

Apparently, God desires this as well, as He is moving in so many hearts to develop these types of communities in various areas. Through five men, decades ago, God gave “safe zones” for the last days, in different areas of the U.S. One of these “safe zones” is in Northeast Idaho/Northwest Montana – the very area God instructed us to relocate to in 2020.

In this time of the social and spiritual breakdown of American society, God is calling multitudes of CHRISTIAN PREPPERS—or those who want to learn self sufficiency—to be prepared not only to survive, but to flourish. This can be accomplished in a Christian Community where we can worship God freely, fellowship with other Believers, supporting one another and working together to provide for the community.

“Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you;
Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past.”

— Isaiah 26:20

The above scripture is speaking about the time following the Abomination of Desolation at the mid-point of the last 7 years. Our desire is to teach and preach as long as possible… however there will come a time when we are to remain hidden from the Antichrist’s wrath during the time between the Abomination of Desolation and the Rapture. What a glorious thing to safely remain and prepare to see the return of Christ.

“Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds
to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.“

— 1 Thessalonians 4:17

To Christian Preppers the “why prepare” has always been to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom to all the earth so that all flesh might be saved. Christian Preppers are prepared to survive to serve so that they can spread the gospel. And as we see the prophetic end-times rapidly approaching us, we need to prepare with more intensity.

There will be many ways to serve the Lord… through those who visit and through those the Lord sends. As long as able, we will also reach outside the community through the Heaven 2021 Project – an effective evangelistic outreach.
