Dr. Jenifer Wakefield

Founder & Executive Director
Brief info

Jenifer's vision for Restoration Ranch, TX is to provide a safe and secure residential program for young women to learn how to rebuild their lives.

Jenifer has lived in the greater Austin, Texas area for most of her life. While not born in Texas, she considers herself a “Texan at heart.” Jenifer has a passion for supporting women in all seasons of life with a Christ-centered focus.
After working in the corporate relocation industry, Jenifer surrendered to full-time vocational ministry. Through this ministry role at her home church she continues to work with women in Christ-centered counseling and is an advocate for families to thrive. Restoration Ranch, Texas™ emerged as a response to a consistent need in the community for women and families. The mission has been established to offer a three stage program for women impacted by addiction or crisis.

Jenifer attended Howard Payne University and studied Communications and Theater Performance (1980-83) in Brownwood, Texas; currently holds a Master’s degree in Christian Education (2017), and doctorate of Educational Ministry and Biblical Counseling (2022) from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.

Jenifer and Gary enjoy spending time with their grown children and grand-kids. Personal hobbies include watching sports, gardening together, and occasionally planning road trips throughout the Texas Hill country.
