Pray for us as we join the Starlings at the camp in Mexico.

The Camp

Rancho La Paloma Camp (Dove Ranch) has been in existence since 1974.  For three generations, God has used this camp to impact the world through the thousands of those who have made spiritual decisions here.  Mike and Christie Starling’s passion and desire is to see the Lord continue to use the camp as a beacon of light in a dark world.  With over 1500+ staying at the ranch yearly, it is a true ministry outreach.  Rancho La Paloma has a unique location being nestled in the Eastern Sierra Madre Mountains at 7000 ft. above sea level.  It is giving students from all over Mexico and the USA the ability to get away from the daily grind of life and intentionally focus on God so as to grow in their relationship with Him.


The Starlings

Mike and Christie are veteran missionaries to Mexico since 1993 and are send out of Temple Baptist Church of Fort Worth, Texas.  They have 3 grown children – Skyler, Spencer, and Sicilie.  Having established 3 churches, 2 Resource Centers, and hosted hundreds of short term mission teams, they are now directors of Rancho La Paloma Camp in Huachichil, Mexico.  Together, Mike and Christie have the experience needed to work with churches from all over Mexico in providing a clean, safe and adventurous ministry location.  Mike is a missionary kid, born and raised in Latin America.  Their family has a passion to reach the lost in Mexico.

Foreign Mission Trips

Since 1990, Mission Quest International has been taking short term mission teams around the world with the intention of exposing them to the life of a missionary while preaching the gospel through Bible and tract distribution, sports, drama, building teams and singing among other things.  MQI short term missionaries will experience third world culture and real life on the foreign mission field.  Come join us on the mission adventure of a lifetime!
