The Ranch

Mormon Fundamentalists in Missouri

Located between Stockton and Humansville, up to 500 Mormon Fundamentalists live at “The Ranch”

You might be wondering how we got here.

Well, let’s start with David Bolthouse. He owns a company that lists its principle address as 516 Owens Mill Rd, Stockton, MO.

This property is split in half. Half is owned by Scott Smith, former staff at Agape Boarding School. The other half is owned by Seven Peaks LLC, which lists its registered agent as Issiah Andra.

I went down a Facebook rabbit hole with Issiah Andra, who lives in Humansville, MO and kept seeing a name, Zitting, that seemed familiar.

I’d seen Zitting around the Stockton area as well, but this was more familiar. Finally, it clicked, Zitting is the last name of a youtuber I watch whose channel is called Growing Up in Polygamy. Then, more names start to make sense. LeBaron. Jessop.

Why were there so many Mormon names in Southwest Missouri? It took me a while, but I finally just googled it.


The Ranch was started by Stephen Laub in 1983, directed by a divine voice to leave southwest Utah. Laub was formerly a part of the Apostolic United Brethren, or AUB group.

Back to Seven Peaks and Issiah Andra. Issiah and his family live on property owned by this mysterious church, Church of Christ of The Kingdom of God.

Is that a reach? Maybe. But it’s enough to keep me interested. Is there a connection between the Bolthouse companies (Exceed, Envoy, Best Choice, etc) and this polygamist group? Or is the connection between Agape and the group? Or is there no connection at all and I’m seeing things.

Seven Peaks also owns four single family homes in Greene County, and another home in Polk County.

All these rentals lead me to believe that perhaps I am jumping to conclusions about a connection between Smith and Andra.
