20 Years of Counseling & Therapeutic Healing.

Instilling Confidence by Teaching the Importance of Work.

Additionally, David Bosley and Master’s Ranch offer a heavily vocational program centered on workplace skills development with real-world application. From wood, metal and cement skills to electrical, plumbing, welding and the culinary arts, boys in the Master’s Ranch program receive valuable vocational skills training that helps instill purpose and confidence that lasts their entire lives.

Such infrastructure provides attendees the confidence, focus and purpose to carve out a more successful path and return to their lives as responsible men of God.
