Lonny Houk is proprietor of Rockin Angel Ranch and retired Army medical administrator, and is married to Katy Houk; father to four children and seven grandchildren. Lonny, along with Katy, served as a medical missionary to Sierra Leone under their former ministry Feed My Lambs Int’l from 1998 to 2005. They planted churches, formed orphanages, and rescued children medically and spiritually from the horrific damage done by rebels — adopting two of those children!
Lonny is now actively ministering in the broader Lawrence, Topeka, and Oskaloosa KS areas, as well as at Rockin Angel Ranch. In Topeka, Lonny serves as a hospice chaplain at Midland Care’s “Program for Adult Care of the Elderly” (PACE). In Oskaloosa, he pastors the Thursday night “Rider’s for Christ” youth meeting at Chances-R Ranch. On Sundays and throughout the week at Rockin Angel Ranch, Lonny leads home church, bible studies, and men’s prayer meetings and retreats, along with equine therapy, and campfire conversations. In addition to all of that, Lonny serves as Chaplain and Trail Boss for the Friday & Saturday Horsemanship ministry at Perry State Park in Kansas.
Having been called into the ministry by the Lord to preach and teach the Gospel, Lonny has been ordained under the Uganda Council of Churches along with Eternal Promises Ministries, and has been featured on 60 minutes, 48 hours, KMOV and more for the work he did in Sierra Leone, and continues to be invited to speak about his work there and the amazing rescue several children, two of which Lonny and Katy adopted.
Katy Houk, Lonny’s wife, is also actively involved in local ministry, including a Tuesday Ladies Bible Study, Horse Therapy, National Public Radio (NPR) Audio Reader program at KU Campus, Lawrence, KS, and bible study leader at Linwood Place Assisted Living Center in Valley Falls, KS.
Katy is never not ministering to someone as Lonny and she, and their Rockin Angel Ranch is about their Father’s business.
