Doug and Karen Stanton moved to Alabama in 2014, after closing down the DSMI Center in Crystal, MN. They have a vision to establish a working Ranch that has a Ministry and Training Center as its heart and purpose.
Eventually this center will house students to be trained in ministry by Doug and Karen Stanton, in a work environment. Ministry is hard work and many young people today do not make it to where they build a ministry that lasts. Doug attributes his longevity and success to to work principles his father built into him on the farm. Combined with what His Heavenly Father has taught him in 40 + years of ministry, we believe students will have lasting ministry and fruit.
