Testimonials & Success Stories

We are proud of the work that we have done for our many students over the years. We are also pleased with some of the kind words that they have given us. Here are some of the comments that we have received.
My name is Julie B. and I am an employee at New Horizons. I was overly impressed with you and the program that you have there. I feel very fortunate for being allowed to visit and spend time with your staff and the boys. The young man I shadowed was Trey B. from Arizona. What a wonderful young man he is. He was very open and informative about the ranch and how he feels about being there. I was so impressed with his honesty and how mature and polite he was with us, considering we were complete strangers. I commend you and your staff for what you are doing for these boys. With out you and Jubilee, most of these boys would continue with no direction and never find that there is another path they can take.

Trey really had a affect on me. If there is anything I can do for him or if he needs anything that I am able to provide I would be more than willing to help.

While we were there, I saw a former student, Joshua B. I have known Josh for almost 4 years and I know what he has been through. I almost cried when he told me that he had given his life to the Lord. Then he told me that he has had no infractions since he has been there! WOW! For Josh, that in itself is a major accomplishment! Thank you for being there for him. I really like Josh, a lot! I am so glad he is with you.

Again Mr. Griffin, thank you for allowing us to visit and learn more about what you have to offer these young men. You and your staff do an outstanding service and thank you for being there for these young men and helping them see that they deserve better for themselves. You and your staff are amazing!

God Bless,

I miss you and all the folks at Jubilee. It was truly a blessing from God to have been there if even for a short time. It was a spiritually pivotal time for me. I was richly blessed by watching the changed lives of the young men and what God was doing there. Nancy and I often reflect with much fondness and lift you all up in prayer.

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful fun run that Jubilee hosted on Saturday. My son and I both participated in the run and were most impressed. Our family tries to do local runs that benefit our community and children. We have done many and yours was by far the best. It was well organized, supported and planned out. The swag bags were great and very generous. The T-shirts were fun and the lunch and family fun fair were awesome! We were both lucky and received medals which were so cool! I was so blown away by receiving an summer YMCA membership.

[I remember when I] came to drop off Shane E. (18) who was [at Jubilee] for a year in 2010. Last week we brought Stirling E. (16) brother of Shane. So he can get some godly mentoring and work on getting school completed! Jubilee is a wonderful place for boys to be men and learn to establish a sense of service. Last week Shane & I rode on the horses. Being a mother of two boys it felt peaceful to know your children are in a safe spiritual place growing and becoming men.

Thank God my son Max had the opportunity to come to Jubilee Leadership Academy and learn those "Core Value Words". We were lost until we found Jubilee! Max was headed down the wrong path, but through Christ & everyone at Jubilee, he now has the skills to take the right path. Keep Max Gardner in your prayers and bless you.

Well... It's been almost 2 months since I've seen Stirling E. Lance & I have come back to JYR to see Stirling play football. How FUN!! Shane is here as an intern & completing his diploma. I've see major changes in both boys for the best. It's amazing how the outside world influences can disrupt a persons future. Shane and Stirling seem to have much more clarity and stability in their daily walk. The world can steal your dreams and here at Jubilee, it seems as if both Shane & Stirling have promises to keep them focused on the dreams. Coming here to visit always help's me to re-evaluate my choices and to humble myself to be thankful everyday for the Lords never ending Love for us and how he always opens doors. When he shuts others, He is faithful and provides! God Bless!!!

Dear Mr. Rick and all staff of Jubilee,

I am writing to let you know how much we as parents thank God for all of you. Jubilee has been a blessing to our whole family. Austin is growing we are growing and very grateful for your time, dedication and commitment not only to our son but all the young men at Jubilee. Your staff are in my prayers every day. I pray for God to encourage you, strengthen you and allow you to see some of the fruits of your labors. When I consider Jubilee, I see it as a gift to our son Austin and our whole family. Our hearts desire for Austin is that he would become all that God wants him to, that he would know the love of Christ like never before. It is through you, the staff, that love is the model to him at this time in his life. We miss him so much sometimes it hurts but that I can honestly say, "Lord, your will be done". That is my prayer also for all of you that God's will be done in your lives and your families for his glory alone.

I also pray for Kellie out of the Holy Spirit upon Jubilee Leadership Academy and every staff member and student. Also for God's standards to be maintained and model daily to the young man.

May God rule and reign in all your lives as you continue to serve.

Please know this is a true heartfelt thanks for each and every one of you.

May God continue to bless you and the work of your hands.

In Christ,
Katie D.
