Steve & Rhonda Ransom
graduated from Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music in Grand Rapids, MI (1976 & 1977), where they majored in Christian Education. They both have always sensed God’s calling on their lives to work with young people.
After graduation, they married and moved to Utah where they became actively involved in many youth ministries in their chuch, including: youth group, awana, sunday school teachers, VBS, etc. It was during this time they started getting interested in Pioneer Bible Camp (then a 2-week summer camp on rented faciliities). Since both Steve and Rhonda grew up attending and serving in camps, they were able to recognize the impact and potential of this ministry in the lives of youth. Sensing God’s direction, they became the Directors of Pioneer Bible Camp in 1988. Today, they continue to serve the Lord as the Directors of PBC (now a 9-week summer camp on 65 acres of land) and have watched God change the hearts and lives of thousands of teens and children.
Steve & Rhonda raised three children who were always involved in camp ministry. Today, Rachel, their oldest is married and raising 5 beautiful children. She and her husband are very active in their home church. Their son, Jeremy, is married and raising 4 beautiful children, they too are very involved in their local church. Their youngest son, Jeff, is married and working in Brigham City and active in their home church. All would agree that camp had a powerful influence on their lives.
