About Us

The ranch was founded by Alan and Donna Phillips when their vision of a quiet, serene place for those of faith to gather, came to reality in 1974. They not only operated and managed the ranch until recently, they had their hands in every single part of building its foundation to its current, peaceful beauty.


Mike & Lisa Irvin

Over a decade ago, Mike and Lisa came to the ranch to assist Mike’s parents with management and daily operations. Today they are the visionaries behind the services and events that make Living Water Ranch the perfect Retreat & Conference Center in Northeast Kansas. Alongside meeting the needs for business meetings, events and lodging facilities; they spearhead the Flint Hills Foster Teen Camps and Tallgrass Shooting Sports.
