12 May Renewal Ranch planning Rally for Recovery on Saturday
Renewal Ranch will present its Fifth Annual Rally for Recovery at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the Conway Expo Center and Fairgrounds.
“Renewal Ranch believes that bringing awareness to the devastating effects of drug and alcohol addiction is important and the chains of addiction can be broken through a relationship with Jesus Christ,” said executive director James Loy.
The event, presented by First Security Bank, will feature Robert Lewis, pastor-at-large at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, as the guest speaker. He is the founder of the Men’s Fraternity and the Quest for Manhood. He is also the best-selling author of “Raising a Modern-Day Knight.”
The event will also feature testimonies from Renewal Ranch graduates and their families.
“Millions of dollars are spent annually on the war against drug and alcohol abuse,” Loy said. “There is a solution for this rampant problem. The Rally for Recovery will share that solution with the community.”
Renewal Ranch opened its doors in February 2011. Since that time, more than 215 men have graduated from the program. During Phase 1, men complete 570 hours of Bible classes and 300 hours of community service. More than 200 men have accepted Christ during their time at Renewal Ranch. About 20 men apply each month for the program, keeping the Ranch constantly at capacity with residents. “The need is so great.”
The event will be catered by Tacos4Life. Proceeds from the rally will be used for operations at the ranch.
