U-Turn For Christ is a Christian Discipleship all encompassing re-entry ministry for men trapped in the deceptive, never-ending cycle of addiction. The U-Turn Ranch provides residents with the opportunity to give back to a community that was once ambivalent towards them. U-Turn’s goal is to teach individuals to be independent, self-supporting, and stable under the Lordship of Jesus Christ by becoming an asset to their family, church, friends, employers, schools and society. Most enrollees come to U-Turn For Christ after hitting their life’s “bottom” and some are ready to do whatever is necessary to have Jesus Christ restore their lives and given them peace again. We have found with men who are ready to give up “leaning on their own understanding” and completely give themselves to the Lords work for 8 months, their lives are never the same.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2
How it Works
In Phase-1 of our program, participants spend a minimum of two months at our U-Turn For Christ ranch. Participants stay in military-style quarters, one large room filled with bunks. This type of housing promotes healthy fellowship. “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” (Proverbs 27:17). Throughout the day, participants are involved in morning devotions, daily chores, volunteer community service, evening Bible study, and nightly personal devotion time.
Phase Two of our program is six months long and comes with two possible paths to travel. Some return to work, pay a monthly donation and attend church with first phase participants in the evening. Others are chosen to commit six months of service to the Lord and are provided for by the ministry. This last choice comes with considerable sacrifice. Servants of Christ can be called on at all times to serve in many different ways. The six-month period does not have to be the end. Many who return to work will stay a year or more, choosing a higher level of accountability and fellowship for their lives. Many who have stayed to serve in ministry now do so at other U-Turn for Christ facilities in the United States and worldwide.
