how we began
We Started Redemption Ranch To Create Resources for The Kids In Our Care.
When God directed four inner-city kids to our care—and eventual adoption into our family—we saw how trauma affected their educational, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. We realized helping them would not be simple, and that it would require a group of resources.
Nearing the end of college, we wanted to make a difference in this world and knew that combining our love for horses and kids was the way to start. We began seeking God’s will for direction and He lead us to inner-city Cincinnati, Ohio. At first we questioned Him saying, ‘We think you misunderstood us. Our vision included horses. That’s not possible in the inner-city.’ Despite the doubting, He assured us that we were exactly where He wanted us to be. [include the part you had written] This is where we began to understand what God was doing. He was showing us that the vision needed to be bigger.
Create an environment where families are redeemed
Our mission is to create a ranch style environment where foster care, sports, horses, and nature work together to bring help and healing. We have seen how these outlets have positively affected our own kids, and we believe this could provide underprivileged and at-risk urban youth a place to find hope and build character.
Lead God’s children to experience redemption through Christ and make disciples
The vision is to see the youth overcome the trauma of their past, see God as the healer, and then be motivated to make a difference in the world around them.
Nature allows youth to experience the healing properties of God’s creation.
Sports are a powerful way for young people to learn about themselves and each other,
Christ-centered homes provide stability and care to at-risk youth.
Interaction with horses help young people learn to care for the wellbeing of another and cope with life stress and difficulty.
From Our Founder
Jennifer Jech, Jordan Jech, & Jessica Polzin
As a result of a sinful world, trauma reaches all social classes and races, but we know that the God of hope can redeem any hardship and turn it into something good. Brokenness, pain, and chaos can be redeemed into hope, joy, peace, and love. God’s healing work allows Redemption Ranch Family Ministries to be a place where the impossible becomes possible. Nothing is too big for Him.
