Many men set forth on a journey to attend our First Responder Legacy program this week at SkyRose Ranch. It was a week of profound impact, where 27 men, each carrying their own burdens and stories, arrived seeking something more. What they found was not just a temporary escape, but a journey towards rediscovering themselves through the lens of faith in Jesus Christ.  

While covering many topics, we embarked on a journey of spiritual discovery, diving deep into what it truly means to have a relationship with Jesus. For many of these men, it was a concept shrouded in uncertainty, a distant beacon they longed to reach but did not know how.  

But through the guidance of scripture and the power of collective vulnerability, something remarkable happened. Walls that had been meticulously constructed over the years, if not decades, began to crumble. In the safety of this sacred space, hearts opened, and stories poured forth like water from a dam released.  

The transformation was nothing short of awe-inspiring. To witness these men, some broken and others merely holding on by a thread, find solace in each other’s shared experiences was a testament to the healing power of God. As they spoke their truths, the weight of their burdens lifted, replaced by a sense of belonging and acceptance. Acceptance in one thing…GOD  

It is often said that we are all walking different paths, each with its own twists and turns. Yet, beneath the surface, we are united by our shared manhood and the desire for something greater than ourselves. At SkyRose Ranch, those paths converged, intersecting at the crossroads of faith and redemption.  

As we bid farewell to the ranch and returned to our respective lives, one thing remained abundantly clear: the seeds of change had been planted. In the fertile soil of these men’s hearts, the love of God had taken root, ready to blossom and bear fruit in the days and years to come.  

Their legacies, once defined by pain and struggle, are now poised for transformation. No longer bound by the chains of their past, they step forward with a newfound sense of purpose and possibility. And though the road ahead may be challenging, they do not walk it alone. For they carry with them the unwavering support of their fellow brothers, bound together by a shared journey towards grace. Even though life will be hard, we have hope in the word of God and the promise that we cannot be separated from his love.  


Romans 8: 38-39 

38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
