With over 100 houses of worship, Grand Junction is an awesome place to connect spiritually. Outside of our abundance of churches, here are three amazing locations to explore faith.
Steadfast Steeds Mustang Horse Sanctuary is run by a husband and wife team, Tracy and Blaine Scott. Blaine is a former pastor at a local Grand Junction church.
Located above the stunning red rock canyons of the Colorado National Monument, Steadfast Steeds is a mustang sanctuary devoted to showcasing America's wild horse as a "living national treasure" in a publically accessible environment. Guests receive interactive experiences and skills that impact their lives & awareness of Mustangs.
Team building activities are an emphasis at the Sanctuary. Lessons on creating trust with the animals and hands-on work truly bring groups together and translate well into teachings and everyday situations. There are several types of seminar formats integrating relationship skills, community building and communication skills.
Guests receive interactive experiences and skills that impact their lives & awareness of Mustangs. They have updated their visitor experience in 2015 - visit for an extended 3-hours, by appointment only, at a cost of $50 per person. Receive hands-on fun with the wild horses while educating yourself about this spectacular breed of horse. Please contact the Sanctuary for a tour times so the mustangs are ready to greet you! 970-241-0939

Twin Peaks Bible Camp is dedicated to sharing God's Word with people of all ages. Their goal is to share the Gospel with those who do not know Jesus Christ as Savior, and to strengthen the faith of those who have already made a commitment to Christ. Twin Peaks is an independent, fundamental, non-profit organization, inspected and licensed by the state of Colorado.
There are a variety of opportunities available at camp that offer time away from the hectic pace of everyday life and a time to listen to our Creator. Week long camps in the summer provide an exciting time of recreation for campers in grades 3 through 12 as well as solid biblical training and spiritual challenges. Other times of the year bring family camps, weekend retreats for men, women, and youth, winter retreats, and work camps.
Camp is located seven miles south of Collbran on the side of the Grand Mesa. This location provides year around access yet offers the solitude that an 8000 foot elevation on the side of the world’s largest flat top mountain provides. 300 alpine lakes and a maximum elevation of 11,500 feet are just a few miles up the road on top of the Grand Mesa.
Situated on 40 acres that borders the Grand Mesa National Forest, groups of up to 145 can be accommodated. Facilities include a chapel that seats 200, dining hall that serves 150, 3 dorms, and 9 cabins. Big Creek runs through the middle of camp, adding to the beauty of the mountain setting.
