"Recently I brought my staff and their spouses to the Buffalo Ridge Retreat Center for a weekend. There were five couples in all and two of these couples were new members to our team this year. We received great benefit from coming together for a retreat like this. Not only were we able to receive some great personal renewal in this refreshing country environment and to have some tremendous bonding time together as a group, but we were able to accomplish some specific goals as well. We experienced a very productive time of planning and praying together. Thank you for providing a Retreat Center like this at a price that an urban pastor can afford to bring his whole staff to and for all the extra care you give to the pastors, families, missionaries, staff, etc. that you serve. May God bless you all richly!" -

"As a ministry leader, I appreciate a place like Buffalo Ridge to schedule time away from the busy schedule, to be in a quiet peaceful place, and know I am prayed for by those preparing the meals, is like the pit stop for a racing car. Sunrise on the ranch is spectacular!"

"In the Spring of 2008 several pastors from different denominations in Olathe, KS attended a retreat at Buffalo Ridge. Everything about Buffalo Ridge was excellent – the accommodations, the food, the setting, the conference room. It was clean, well prepared and a joy to experience. Not only would I recommend Buffalo Ridge, I have scheduled several retreats there for members of my church. Small group retreats at Buffalo Ridge are a wonderful way to build spiritual intimacy and relationships for the purpose of making disciples. I am utilizing their facilities in a small group approach to discipleship." -
"Thanks so much for the lovely stay at Buffalo Ridge. I really enjoyed (and needed) some time alone with the Lord with no distractions. It was nice to be in the country and it was gorgeous weather! I enjoyed staying in the Loft. It was cute and homey and I liked the fact that it overlooked the animals. . . Thanks again, and may God continue to bless your ministry!"
