Renewal Ranch Rally for Recovery on May 19

The Fourth Annual Rally for Recovery will be held 5:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at the Conway Expo Center and Fairgrounds.

The rally is designed to increase awareness about the devastating effects of drug and alcohol addiction while providing hope that freedom from addiction is possible.

Steve Hutton, a PGA professional for 19 years and author of “Pride Aside,” will be the keynote speaker. A resident of Madison, Miss., his book details a father’s journey through his son’s addiction.

Most recently, he was vice president of field ministry for Promise Keepers. He has since served as the founder and president of Momentum Events, producing men’s and marriage conferences in mega-churches across the U.S. 

There will also be a parade of Renewal Ranch graduates and testimonials from program participants and their families. 

The event includes a catered meal by Tacos 4 Life.

“Millions of dollars are spent annually on the war against drug and alcohol abuse,” said James Loy, executive director of Renewal Ranch.

“There is a solution for this rampant problem. The Rally for Recovery will share that solution with the community.”

Renewal Ranch is a non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to restoring broken lives through Christ, while providing the resources needed to lead productive lives free from drugs and alcohol abuse. 

The Ranch opened its doors in February 2011. Since that time, more than 190 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 the Ranch.

“Approximately 20 men apply each month for the program,” Loy said. “Renewal Ranch constantly stays at capacity with residents. The need is so great!”

Sponsorships are available for the event. For more information, call Bryce McGhee at 501.733.4263 or [email protected].

Rally proceeds will be used for operational expenses at the Ranch.
