Pastor David and Tresa Bosley
Directors and Administrators
Pastor David and Tresa Bosley have four children of their own. Almost from the beginning they began taking in children of all ages, who would just show up at their home or get dropped off by troubled parents. So began their calling and passion for disadvantaged or hurting children. Now more than 28 years later, they have raised hundreds of kids, with the larger part keeping in touch with them to this day. While raising a family and taking in extra kids by the dozen at a time, Mr. Bosley has worked as a farmer, corrections officer, journeyman welder, union millwright, loan officer, realtor, business owner/entrepreneur, salesman, fencing contractor, logger, and equipment operator, in addition to church planting, pastoring, and youth work. During these years of raising kids for others, Pastor and Mrs. Bosley have continued their research and education in the issues and counseling methods necessary to address the various and complex needs of troubled teens. They also spend a lot of time counseling and encouraging the parents of these at-risk kids. David and Tresa Bosley are well known for their passionate love for and success with troubled teens. They are truly gifted for the difficult work they have been called to carry on.

Arthur, while attending college in Austin, TX. Heard a powerful and passionate Easter Sunday message in 1985, Arthur’s heart turned, and he accepted Jesus Christ as his own Personal Savior with great joy. Arthur met the Bosleys in 1994 in Olympia, WA at the church where Pastor Bosley was the pastor . He also worked with Tresa in a homeschool co-op and witnessed firsthand their love for at-risk children. Life took Arthur and the Bosleys in different directions for a few years, until finally, in 2010, Arthur gave up a very lucrative job as an international accountant with a global company to come on board the Master’s Ranch as bookkeeper, tutor, mentor and instructor. Arthur, who was adopted at 10 years old after a some volatile family situations makes him uniquely sympathetic and understanding of many of the boys.

Adam was born in San Diego, CA. In high school Adam was skipping school and using drugs, and when he left home at 17 to live with friends, his drug use increased and his life spiraled out of control. Though he always knew he was going the wrong direction, he was 22 before he hit rock bottom and decided to clean up his life. He sought help through his church and was taken in by a friend of Pastor Bosley, who brought him to Master’s Ranch. Adam completely turned his life around and began living for the Lord. He worked as junior staff at the ranch for a time, then attended Providence Baptist College in Elgin, IL for a year before returning to MRCA as staff in August, 2010. Adam has a burden to help the boys avoid the type of life he was living before. He continues to grow in Christian character and is excited about God’s future for him. Along with his beautiful wife, Audrey, who is also on staff at MRCA, Adam says he has truly found his calling for the rest of his life.
Audrey loves cooking and had the privilege of learning from her mother about how to feed a family. She worked as a teacher before coming to the kitchen of Master’s Ranch in June 2012. She counts it as a privilege to work with the boys, who all help with dishes or cooking a meal at some point during the week. To stand back and watch the students at Master’s Ranch transform and to see the light come on for them is the greatest part of her job. Her husband, Adam Walters, is a product of MRCA. She says that she could not have asked for a better leader, husband and friend. She sees that the life lessons taught to the young men at the ranch are also reflected in her husband’s life every day. She is thankful that God has allowed her a small part in sharing those life lessons with the boys.
“Grandma Betty” Bosley
One our ministry’s most precious treasures – known affectionately by everyone as “Grandma Betty” is the mother of Pastor David Bosley. When David and Tresa had the opportunity to found MRCA ministry, a vision they had for many years, she was delighted to take a leap of faith and contributed all she had financially to the ministry to get it started; her moral and maternal support; and lots of prayers. She is the initial purchaser of the first ranch property and serves on the Board-of-Directors. The boys love having Grandma Betty around; she loves them all unconditionally and treats each one as if they were her own beloved grandson.
Having traveled many times from her now former home in Irvine, CA, to visit and help out in the ministry, Betty decided to move nearby the ranch in 2012 to join the staff of the ranch ministry for boys. Betty was the founder and co-owner of a successful business in California, and has decades of experience in many industries, from real estate, loans, notary training, landscaping, and interior decorating. She is an entrepreneur with valuable experience to share through the Masters Ranch School.
