Our Story

What we do


We help our boys develop relationally through counseling, our in-residence program, school and community engagement, and interacting with the public at our Community Store and Quick Lube.

Spiritual Formation

At the heart of our ministry is spiritual formation. Our boys are introduced to Christ and live within a gracious, truth-filled environment.


With small classes and individual attention, our boys are able to get back on track in their education and prepare for meaningful and productive futures.

Ranch Boys: The Story of Chestnut Mountain Ranch

By Steve Finn, Dawn Finn, Bradley Clotfelter, & Trey Dunham

Ranch Boys is the story of how the vision of Chestnut Mountain Ranch began. This is the story of three paths converging. This is the story of redemption and healing. Chestnut Mountain Ranch is a children’s home and school located on 300 acres near Morgantown, West Virginia. The vision of Chestnut Mountain Ranch was slowly forged over decades, and today a wonderful program exists to bring hope to children who have none, and to show families the love of Christ. This is God’s story.
