In January we were privileged to hear from Susan Taylor about the great work that is being done at Big Oak Ranch. John Croyle started Big Oak Ranch in 1974 after playing football for Bear Bryant at Alabama. Since 1974, John and Tee (John’s wife), along with the Big Oak Ranch staff, have been called to meet the needs of hundreds of children by giving them a solid, Christian home and a chance to fulfill God’s plan for their lives. John says – “like every family, we’ve enjoyed great success stories and heartbreaking failures. Yet the “cornerstone,” and even the name of Big Oak Ranch, has remained fundamentally rooted in Isaiah 61:3″,And they shall be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that He may be glorified.” Once our team became aware of all the children they were caring for we decided immediately to help them. We love their dedication to caring for children and consider it an honor to help. To learn more go to
