Part of the Rainbow Acres 40th Anniversary celebration will be a Founders Luncheon, to honor Ralph and Marilyn Showers and Larry and Joy Goehner, who took a leap of faith (or two!) in 1973 and partnered to develop a Christian community where adults with developmental disabilities could have lives of purpose and dignity.
Founders Ralph and Marilyn Showers
In 1974, the dream became a reality when Rainbow Acres Ranch became home to several men with developmental and cognitive challenges. Four of those original Ranchers are still living at Rainbow today!
On Friday, October 24, 2014 we are are honoring the Founders at a special luncheon in the beautiful Palmer Community Center. Please plan to come and listen to their incredible story and help Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present, and Vision the Future!
Besides learning about the founders of Rainbow Acres you will enjoy a meaningful and inspirational program by Renée Bondi, a popular Christian recording artist, speaker and author. Renée has traveled across America sharing about God’s faithfulness, even in times of tragedy. In 1988, just two months shy of her wedding day, she was involved in a bizarre accident that left her paralyzed from the neck down. Although her life was tragically changed overnight, Renée continued to trust in the Lord and her faith grew stronger. Renée is the founder of Bondi Ministries and lives with her husband and son in San Juan Capistrano.
