Welcome to Ozarks Teen Challenge Juvenile Boys Ranch. We are more than a mere rehabilitation program. Rehabilitation involves restoration to original state. We believe that God has much higher plans for your family. He intends to transform your son into the young man that he was created to be. Please browse the pages of this site with assurance that there is an answer for your situation. My hope is that this simple assurance will change your outlook from pain and despair to hope and that you’ll consider our program as an agent of blessing to your family.

Located just outside of Branson, MO, we are Missouri’s only Teen Challenge Juvenile Boys center. Branson has become a popular tourist destination with an abundance of shows and attractions. With Silver Dollar City & Celebration City (amusement parks), shopping and shows, the lovely Ozark Mountains and an abundance of water (3 large lakes within minutes), it offers something to vacationers of all ages and interests. Despite the accessibility of these attractions, our center is a quiet retreat off the beaten path. Our 26 bed facility sits on 175 acres of hardwood forest, rugged hiking trails and graceful pastureland.

Holding to the same core values, which have made Teen Challenge so effective, we endeavor to facilitate transformation in your son’s life. These values aren’t a simple formula for changing your son. They are principles, which are centered on communion with the God of transformation. This is fundamental because deep change can only come from relationship with Jesus Christ.

Through a structured daily habit and spiritual nurturing, we intend not only to introduce your son to Jesus Christ, but to guide him into true discipleship…into spiritual and practical discipline. As he grows as a disciple, you will begin to see his anger, indifference, and destructive behavior diminish and his countenance begin to reflect that of Christ.

Whether Ozarks Teen Challenge is your first or your last attempt to resolve your son’s crisis, we are confident in the redemptive, transforming power of God.We trust that He who created your son also intends to prosper him.
