Our founders have a heart to participate in the healing work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ through our words, actions, and our programs, which continue to grow to meet the needs of our community.

Since our earliest days, our primary focus has been our Youth Program, which had grown to serve more than 200 youth and their families each year.
Due to the pandemic, our Youth Program was suspended in 2020. It was such a blessing to re-open on June 7, 2021, with a special program called The Harmony Project, funded by a grant from the Montgomery County Community Foundation. This program, designed to help youth with a history of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to build resilience, will include many outdoor activities incorporating movement, music, rhythm, and drama, in addition to horsemanship/riding.
