The women’s ranch is located in Greeneville, Tennessee, not too far from the Smoky Mountains. The Phase 1 of the ministry requires a minimum two-month commitment. Here the women are involved in a daily regiment consisting of morning devotions, daily chores, running a thrift store, evening Bible study, and nightly personal devotion time.
During these two months, an enrollee can expect a lot of hard work. The women work at a thrift store, which requires a lot of time and diligence. There is also structure, which consists of several daily routines. Women will also have personal time with Jesus Christ at the end of every day, with an evening Bible study and personal devotion time, as well. There are daily Bible studies brought by women from local churches. These spiritual leaders provide the opportunity for the Holy Spirit to minister and draw the women into repentance and surrender.
Phase 2 is a little different. It requires an additional six-month commitment. The Phase 2 aspect of this ministry requires the enrollee to search and obtain a job in the community, and provide their own compensation for living on the ranch. During this time, women move into the Phase 2 house, which requires chores and yard work, just like a regular home! They have more freedom, which also comes with more responsibility. Accountability is important, and although a woman will be out in the world holding a job, she will be required to attend all Bible studies and devotions. This provides a wonderful opportunity to transition into the world as a disciple of Christ and, ultimately, a woman of God.
