Big Oak Ranch to partner with LifeWaycomment (0)

February 20, 2014

Alabama’s Big Oak Ranch has entered into partnership with LifeWay Christian Resources.

LifeWay President Thom S. Rainer announced the partnership during the LifeWay trustee meeting Feb. 3–4 in Nashville.

Big Oak Ranch, a national ministry to abandoned and neglected children, has cared for 2,000 children since its founding in 1974 and now consists of a Boys’ Ranch in Gadsden, a Girls’ Ranch near Springville and Westbrook Christian School in Rainbow City. 

John Croyle, founder and executive director, is a well-known speaker and author in the state. His son, Brodie, serves as associate executive director and is becoming a sought-after speaker as well. Both Croyles played football for the University of Alabama.

“Big Oak Ranch saves children’s lives, and all of LifeWay can be involved in that ministry as we come alongside them and adopt Big Oak,” Rainer said. Employees are being given opportunities to donate to Big Oak as well as provide support in other ways that will “help save lives spiritually, physically and emotionally,” he noted.
