This weekend retreat is designed to bless full-time expatriate evangelical missionaries who are native English-speakers. It is a time to “clock-out” of daily ministry and have the opportunity to be ministered to, network with others, and have a time of corporate worship and biblical teaching in English while at a relaxing facility.

2019 Keynote Speaker

Senior Pastor | The Ranch Church

Rick Soto


Rick Soto was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico to Puerto Rican parents. Raised in Los Angeles, he attended and graduated from Catholic schools.

During his senior year at San Diego State University he had a sudden and radical encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ, and afterward was never the same. He left early business opportunities behind and engaged in full time ministry as a newer believer.

A number of years were spent in college ministry, traveling to many places all over the world to preach the gospel, including the former Soviet Union and the Middle East. It was during this time that Rick and Jane fell in love and were married. After some time, Rick landed on the staff of Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara, and then saw the Lord open doors to plant The Ranch Church.

 He can sometimes be seen running through a local valley trail, and is often found at the gym. Rick and Jane have four treasured sons.


The conference will once again be held at the beautiful Pacific Paradise Hotel in Costa Del Sol. Conference registration includes meals, rooms and all adult and children programs.
