The Christian Life Ranch serves men and their families with effective Faith-Based Recovery and Discipleship programs, teaching and training designed to foster restoration and healing, and help them become productive contributing members of society. This is a place where new life is cultivated by identifying and confronting destructive core beliefs and applying grace to produce transformation. Many of the students have attempted to fix themselves by trying harder. The thoughts, perceptions and lies a person adopts into their identity in order to excuse or attempt to forget painful memories are replaced with truth through this process. This exemplifies the truth of Christ’s existence and unconditional love for them.
The process of spiritual formation of our program parallels the initiative created by our made-to-order custom Cross Shop. The materials utilized at the beginning of the process bear a striking resemblance to that of the men that we are called to help through our ministry. Like them, and all of us at times in life, the materials are blemished, uncultured and can feel seemingly useless. Some of the materials have been through several attempts at repair in order to restore them to their original state and display their value.
