Master Plan Ministries is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) non-denominational Christian organization. Based out of Durango, CO, our ministry work has three major areas of focus: the campus ministry, the men's ministry and the Cascade Lodge ministry. Most recently, Master Plan has acquired a property near Durango that will be used as a Great Commission training facility - Three Trails Ranch.
Russ and Linda Akins founded Master Plan Ministries in 1985 at Ft. Lewis College in Durango, CO. Along with the continued ministry at FLC, Master Plan has also been at Colorado Mesa University since 1994 and Adams State University since 2019.
There are currently 19 full-time staff working with the ministry. We also have a committed Board of Directors, all of whom hold ministry responsibilities with other ministries.
