The founders, directors, and staff of this ministry live out and model the Christian life to the students and families they serve. This ministry transforms people’s lives and teaches godly principles to troubled teens and their families. The wilderness aspect of the residential program provides an excellent opportunity for teens to get away from the negative influences of the culture. I know parents are hurting and looking for answers and you cannot put a price tag on the welfare of your child. I was blessed on a couple of occasions to share my testimony with the students of Shepherd’s Hill Academy. It was amazing to me to see the expressions on their faces as I answered their questions and shared the love of Christ with them.
