Ready Yourselves Youth Ranch exists to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ by bringing together rescue horses, children in need, and volunteer mentors ready to shine the light of Jesus in the darkest night, creating a safe and loving environment ready for God to heal.
SERVE the Lord by being ready to show his love and grace through action and prayer.
LOVE the child. Every mentor's priority will be to make sure that the child feels loved, unconditionally. This will come as the mentor gives support and encouragement during the child's difficult times as well as celebrating his/her accomplishments and victories.
SAVE the horse. We will provide all necessary care for rescued horses, bringing them back to health so they can become nurturing members of the ranch.
ENABLE the children and their families to realize the strength and hope found in God. Once we establish a relationship with the child, we can then provide a support network for his/her family which provides them with hope, encouragement, and prayer through their difficult times.
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. - 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)
