Ministry Campus named “Rising Light Ridge”
After two years of conversations, seeking wise counsel, and intense prayer concerning the 3000 acre preserve it obtained in 2016, it was clear the Lord was leading the Tim Tebow Foundation to create a community of belonging, specifically an integrated experiential community where typical youth and youth with special needs live together, camp together, adventure together, and serve together; honoring one another for the unique abilities we are all given by a Creator who has made every human being in His perfect image. This community will be known as Rising Light Ridge, the newest ministry of the Tim Tebow Foundation.
Property purchased in Bear Creek Township
In the summer of 2016, the Tim Tebow Foundation purchased a beautiful 3,000 acre preserve in the Pocono Mountains. This purchase was made possible by a very generous donation given to the foundation for this very purpose.
