About Us

A place for Pastors to receive:  REST | REVELATION | REJUVENATION

Executive Directors:  David and Maris Martinez

David, the Executive Director of the Burning Bush Ranch, possesses an extraordinary story brimming with unexpected twists and turns.  These experiences have played a pivotal role in shaping and equipping David for their current quest.

His family journey leads him and Maris to Arkansas, where one evening, fate intervenes, thrusting them into the role of permanent parents to their cherished children.  This life-altering experience necessitates a courageous decision to uproot and relocate to Texas.  After nearly a year of transition, they finally find a home in Texas, where David assumes the esteemed positions of Senior and Executive Pastor at Community Church, as well as Superintendent at Community Christian School in Orange, Texas.  Their dedication to ministry remains resolute and unwavering.

David’s unwavering dedication to serving others and his strong sense of purpose have given him a deep understanding of the emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental challenges that pastors often encounter.  This profound insight led him to discover his true calling: to establish a haven tailored specifically for the needs of pastors.  A place where they can wholeheartedly detach from their responsibilities, unwind, and seek solace in the serene countryside.  This sanctuary offers pastors the opportunity to reconnect with nature, embrace the gift of solitude, and replenish their spirits in the divine presence of God.

David and Maris, married for 42 years, bring a wealth of experience and dedication to their ministry.  With David’s 37-year background in a Fortune 500 organization before retiring, their unique journey has shaped their vision and fueled their unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.  Now, they are creating a nurturing and transformative environment for all who visit, drawing on their inspiring journey to create a truly impactful experience.
