Meet Our Leadership

Linda S. Paulk

President and CEO

Linda accepted God’s call to Sky Ranch in 2007 – a call that she still describes as one of those “no option, no dialogue, obedience driven calls.” After serving 20 years in corporate America, the last 5 years as the President and CEO for Snelling Staffing, one of the nation’s largest staffing services, Linda’s passion goes far beyond business. Her love for Christ and passion for youth and families to know Christ is the catalyst that fuels her calling to Sky Ranch. In 14 years, her desire has grown deeper for the camping ministry and creating an environment where youth and families can come to know and follow Christ. Linda is a recognized leader in the Christian camping industry and has served on many non-profit and for-profit boards that focus on evangelism and the well-being of youth. She was featured in Texas Women – recognizing women who have blazed trails in their respective fields. Linda is married to her high school sweetheart, Bob, a retired Captain in the U.S. Navy and currently Chief Operating Officer of Pogue Construction, and they are blessed with two grown children and five grandchildren. Their daughter Ashleigh is married to Ben Pogue and they have four children, Presley, Jackson, Hayden, and Charlotte. Their son Bobby is married to Megan and they have one daughter, Georgia. 

Doug McClain

Vice President of Operations

Doug grew up in the camping and outdoor world. He has a B.S. in Recreation Resource Management, Commercial Recreation and Tourism from Colorado State University and has used the camp and outdoor environment for the learning experiences and ministry growth of others since 1984. Doug joined the ministry of Sky Ranch in 2004. Throughout his time at Sky Ranch, Doug has had the privilege of serving in numerous roles at each of the four Sky Ranch locations. Doug, currently serving as the Vice President of Operations, has a passion to share what he’s learned with others in the camping profession.

John Morgan

Vice President of Ministry Programs

John Morgan grew up around Dallas, TX, and he has been a part of Sky Ranch in many different ways since 1998. John is passionate about ministry and feels like God called him into ministry when he was 16 years old. He was the song guy for Sky Ranch in 1998 and a counselor in 1999. John served as a youth minister at White’s Chapel UMC in Southlake, TX for almost two years before becoming the Sky 3&4 Camp Manager at Sky Ranch four years. Over the last several years, John has grown in roles at Sky and is currently Vice President of Ministry Programs. He is passionate about bringing fun into the programs of Sky Ranch and making it a place that kids love. Sky Ranch feels like home to John and he is excited about the ways that he is challenged and grows in his relationship with Christ. John’s family, his wife Amanda and their four children, are his most important ministry as he loves being a husband and a dad.

Candice Myers

Candice’s relationship with Sky Ranch began in 2004, when she and her husband were called to the ministry to evaluate and expand the horse and rodeo program. Candice’s background includes experience in television news, commercial production, freelance writing, and customer service. A seasoned speaker, singer and songwriter, she has been involved in full-time ministry work for over 20 years. Born and raised in the central Midwest, the former Miss Kansas has a passion for authentic and transparent ministry, and a heart for moms who are navigating their children through today’s rapidly changing culture.
