BUILDING BOYS INTO MEN
For Over 15 Years
Chestnut Mountain Ranch
Looking for Peace
No Longer Alone
In Need of Change
We are a Christ-centered home and school. We reach the hearts of young men and restore broken families through a structured, loving community.
Restoring hope to children and families.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
How God lead us to where we are today
I am from West Virginia, but our family moved to Georgia when I was young after my father passed. I grew up in Atlanta, and when I was 21 I became a police officer.
For 12 years I worked as a Christian in uniform. I loved my work, but God began to stir my wife’s heart and mine for something more.

How We Serve the Boys in Our Community
What We Do
Developing a relationship with Christ is at the heart of all that we do at The Ranch. Students and families are introduced to the teachings of the Bible, and it is our desire that all would place their trust in Christ.
The Ranch School is a nationally accredited private school that utilizes small class sizes and individualized attention to help each student reach their potential.
We believe God is the healer of wounds and ultimate course-setter for the future of our students. Building fellowship within this community is critical for the healing process. Each child lives in a home with six other students, and a husband and wife as their Houseparents. The homes provide a safe, loving, and structured environment for relationships to form and strengthen.
“It is better to build boys than to mend men.”
~ Truett Cathy, founder of Chic-Fil-A
