U-Turn For Christ is a Christian Discipleship all encompassing re-entry  ministry for men and women 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 and women, who are ready to give up “leaning on  their own understanding” and completely give themselves to the Lords  work for 8 months, they're lives are never the same.  

How It Works


Phase 1

In Phase-1 Of Our Program,  Participants Spend A Minimum Of Two Months At One Of Our U-Turn For  Christ Ranch Locations. 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 2

The  Second Phase Of The 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 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 Stay A Year Or More Choosing A Higher Level Of  Accountability And Fellowship For Their Lives. In Addition, Many Who  Have Stayed On To Serve In Ministry Are Now Serving At Other Facilities  In The United States, And Around The World.
