Binions return to full-time traveling ministry to focus on vision for Dwell Worship Ranch
In March of 2007, we moved from Nashville, TN to Dallas, TX to place our family and ministry under the covering of Pastors Mike and Kathy Hayes and Covenant Church. We had been traveling full-time in ministry for nearly 10 years and felt strong direction from the Lord to move and raise our family at Covenant Church, while still continuing to travel to churches around the country, leading congregations in worship. Little did we know that God had a bigger plan for our time at Covenant Church than we could have ever imagined.
A year after we moved to Dallas, we went on staff as worship pastors at Covenant, devoting all of our time and energy to the incredible worship and creative teams there. Over the past 9 years at Covenant Church we have poured ourselves into our team and into new worship songs that have blessed people all around the world! It has been the greatest joy of our 23 years of marriage and ministry to serve Covenant Church these past 10 years!
In the fall of 2016, God began to speak to our hearts about our next season of ministry. For years we dreamed about a vision and prophetic word that God had given us in 2005 about a worship ranch; a place where we would train and raise up worshipers, but also a place where many could come and receive healing and restoration in the presence of God. We held this word in our hearts for so long, that honestly, we had almost forgotten about it because we were so fulfilled in our work at Covenant Church. However, last fall God brought it back to us and has confirmed what we were feeling in our hearts through multiple prophetic words. We know that now is the time.
Sunday, May 14, 2017 was our last official Sunday as Worship Pastors of Covenant Church and we are diving head first into pursuing this new, exciting season God has for us! We are completely stepping out in faith, but as our Pastor has said, “Provision always follows vision,” and we are believing for that in this new season!
We will begin traveling full-time for the next several months, seeking God for direction and clarity regarding the location of our worship property, Dwell Ranch. During this time we are also looking for those who will partner with us through prayer and giving to make this God-given dream a reality! We will be providing more information in the coming weeks of how you can be connected with us on this journey. We know that He who began this good work in us is faithful to complete it!
David and Nicole
We’re here today to talk about a new vision Nicole and I have for our future. We have been talking about and praying about for over a decade about launching a worship ranch. God called us to mentor and father and mother young worshipers. I really couldn’t get my mind around how that was going to work and what that would look like. And then we came to Covenant and started working with like Josh and Colin and even Nathan. This has become a template of what we feel God is going to do by the hundreds and by the thousands. This center, this ranch, that we’re going to call it Dwell Ranch.
A word that God gave us was that He’s not releasing us from something, but He’s expanding us to something.
It was amazing how God used music to get me through the darkest days of my life. But it was your worship, your music would take me right into His presence, and it was in His presence where I found healing.
I have always known that every worship experience with you two is a gift.
Because you’re a good shepherd and not just a giant slayer. Because you’ve sowed so many good seeds, whether it’s by the supernatural or the natural just acting a little bit super, God can use those around you to make it happen. So just sit back and be still and know, He’s proven himself once and He can prove Himself again.
We ask you to pray for us, to believe with us, and we believe we’re going to see some supernatural things unfold before our eyes as we step into this. So God bless you Covenant Church, we love you, we always will.
After a decade of dreaming and believing in a word from the Lord, Pastor David and Nicole Binion are beginning a new chapter! They are launching a worship ranch, Dwell Ranch, to mother and father young worshippers. They know that that they’re not being released from something, but expanded to something! We are believing the BEST for this transition and this incredible family. Pastor David and Nicole have blessed us so much over the past 10 years! We love you, love your family and your ministry!

We celebrate @davidbinion and @nicolebinion as they are moving into their next season of life. I am so blessed to have had a seat at you guys table these last 5 years. I've heard it said that "When you leave something, leave it better than you found it." Well, I am better, our worship team is better and our church is better because of you guys. Thank you both for EVERYTHING. I could talk for hours about you guys.. and sometimes, I do.. and will continue to. Endless love and respect to my dear friends. Love you guys.
I want to honor these two wonderful people right here. David and Nicole, it has been such a joy to get to know you both over the past 5 years and to be a small part of your music. Getting to play guitar and travel with you has been a huge blessing. The passion and authenticity of your worship has truly changed me for the better. You are the real deal! Your music has made a such a huge impact in the kingdom and in my personal life as well! I am so excited to see all the great things ahead of you in this next season. Thank you for being you! You make me want to be better. Love you both!
