Foundation of The Heart

Bear Trap Ranch is still the home of your memories and life encounters! The history and legacy of this hallowed property is protected and preserved through the ownership and stewardship of Foundation of the Heart. Many may recognize us through the ministry we do with men under the name “Band of Brothers”. Foundation of the Heart has been involved in providing discipleship through retreats and resources to couples, families, singles, church groups and, more specifically men and their sons, for over a decade both locally and nationally. As the new stewards of Bear Trap Ranch, we are committed to operating the ranch in a similar manner as InterVarsity has been doing for nearly 60 years of its stewardship, preserving Bear Trap’s Kingdom legacy and history.

Foundation of the Heart is a Colorado based Christian ministry and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Public Charity.  We do ministry as “Band of Brothers” and can be found at

Our organization’s mission and vision is to offer the brotherhood of Christ to people moving from success to meaning, addictions to freedom, and selfishness to God’s call.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and authoritative Word of God.

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in God’s revealing of His love of us by allowing the death of His Son Jesus, in the bodily resurrection of Jesus, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory at some time in the future.
  • We believe we are saved by the grace and love of our Triune God. We are a Spirit-led people, and trust in His work to transform and sanctify our lives so that we can become more like Jesus. We believe in advancing God’s Kingdom here on earth.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and in the importance of authentic and secret-less relationships with other brothers in Christ, and we support the ministry of Jesus-loving churches here and beyond.
