Rising Light Ridge will be a fully accessible recreational, learning and ministry facility providing a community of belonging where participants of all backgrounds and abilities, and their families, can grow in Christ and in love for others through programming designed to foster peer-to-peer relationships that inform, serve and challenge one another.
Rising Light Ridge is the result of the 2016 acquisition by the Tim Tebow Foundation of a magnificent 3000-acre property in Bear Creek, Pennsylvania, just outside of Wilkes-Barre, made possible by an extremely generous donation to allow the property to be used to advance God’s Kingdom and serve individuals and families.
We are committed to providing exceptional experiences to our guests, families and staff in all of our programming. We believe it is vital to demonstrate excellence in all things to honor and glorify God. We will incorporate into our campus design and programs elements which foster peer to peer interaction; facilitating conversation, sharing and growing.
Rising Light Ridge will seek to expand the conversation around special needs beyond the current interpretation focused on physical and cognitive challenges, to include socio-economic, relational and traumatic challenges. We will serve guests of all backgrounds and abilities.
