As Jeanna stated in her letter, our impact report exists to tell stories of how people flourished spiritually, personally and professionally throughout the course of the year. This is a unique annual report for a business – one that is truly an honor and a privilege to compile, and we only have that privilege because of the way Rick Betenbough led this company. Through his love for people and his obedience to the Lord, Rick put the flourishing of people as the highest priority – both in his own life and for Betenbough Companies. The impact Rick had on the lives of others cannot be overstated, and it continues to increase today. The ripple effect he created will spread further than we’ll ever be able to see. So, as we look back on the stories of impact from 2023, we would be remiss to not share some of the quotes and testimonies from those who’ve been impacted by Rick personally or by one of the ripples he created. We hope they give you a glimpse into the incredible life and legacy of our beloved founder.
Rick Betenbough was a home-building innovator and giant in our community. His leadership building Betenbough Homes has provided thousands of families with the blessing of a home, but more than that his legacy will be marked by his heart, faith, and service to our community. He was a valued member of WTHBA and we will miss him dearly.David Jordan, President of the West Texas Home Builders Association

We had our company Christmas party a couple of weeks ago, and one of our builders wanted to share his testimony. It was inspiring to see someone’s life transformed because of a home-building company. And like I always do, I had the thought, ‘Thank you, Rick, thank you, Ron, thank you Betenbough family.’ We exist because of your generosity; you have impacted people’s lives who you may never meet.Daman Schuber, Co-founder of Schuber-Mitchell Homes
