Broken Arrow Youth Ranch


Christ the Solid Rock Ministries and in particular Broken Arrow Youth Ranch was created to minister to families in distress. Adults overwhelmed with personal issues find it extremely difficult to properly care for their children. Sadly what often prevents adults from going for help is - what do I do with my children?

When addictions or major dysfunction is an issue in an adult’s life and they decide to go for help, trust has often been so violated that relatives are unwilling to become involved, questioning whether the help being sought is genuine. In addition, struggling adults are very wary of approaching government for fear their children may be taken away forever.

This is where Christ the Solid Rock Ministries comes in - through a private cooperative agreement they will receive children of any age for a minimum of two years while issues are attended to – they believe two years allows adults time to work through the valleys of recovery. The Broken Arrow Youth Ranch offers children an opportunity to learn about our Saviour and about life in a working ranch setting complete with horses and cattle. The ministry’s involvement allows children to experience stability and security, and with Christ’s help enables them to work out some of their issues as well.

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”

Matthew 7:24,25

Family reunification is the desire, however, should longer care be required, the children will be cared for until graduation from high school. “We know when children and families address personal issues through a proper understanding of God, His Son, His Word and the principles therein, and model them in their lives, they become God honouring, hard working, responsible, productive citizens.”
