At church last week we had Renewal Ranch sharing with us about what God is doing in the lives of the men that are participating in the program.
Renewal Ranch is located just across the Toad Suck Bridge in Perry County (AR) on 90 acres of land. The program is a faith-based, Christ-centered, substance abuse program for men. They opened their doors in January of 2011 and have already had several graduates from the program. The program takes a minimum of six months to graduate.
James Loy is the director who has also successfully completed a similar program in Charlotte, AR. Loy is a native of Conway having graduated from Conway High School and the University of Central Arkansas. He felt God leading him to return home to become the director of Renewal Ranch.
The support network for this ministry is outstanding with ministers, business and community leaders serving in various capacities including a board of directors.
Renewal Ranch is not supported by government funding, so the financial support of Christians is vital in carrying out its mission.
There are a lot of organizations you can support, and Renewal Ranch is one that is worth considering. These men are being changed and freed form the bonds of substance abuse and addiction with the help of God and Renewal Ranch.
Oh yeah, this Saturday, October 15th, there will be a chili cook off fundraiser for Renewal Ranch. You might want to check it out for some good chili!
