Carolyn Cook
Woman’s Ranch Head Overseer

I am currently serving as the Head Overseer for the Women’s Ranch. I came to the ministry back in 2009, after being lost in an alcohol and drug addiction for several years of my life. It was this very ministry where I was able to build a relationship with the Lord. I now have the opportunity to share with other women the love of Christ, just as it was shared with me.

Founder and President

Pastor Gerry and Peggy have worked hard to establish a family atmosphere in the ministry of U-Turn for Christ and Calvary Chapel Romoland. They pray that you would consider sending your loved ones to them so that they may receive Jesus as Lord and Savior and allow the power of the Holy Spirit to set them free from the bondage of sin.

I personally went thru uturn for christ TN. and it had changed my life, I was not a believer and I wanted to leave the second I got there, the conditions were rough and you definitely don\'t want to drive unless you\'ve detoxed first but after the comradory and Pastor in particular as well as my overseers I was saved. Yeah I might\'ve relapsed but what addict doesn\'t. But I still held good in my heart that ive gained there and only there and still care deeply about the people who helped me attain that level of clarity. After relapsing it was the God that was placed in my heart to make me want to fix it again and stop backsliding. It\'s a difficult process but so is struggling everyday with addiction, when a place like uturn has the ability to make my of all peoples main focus on God as my reason why to try to fight harder to stop the addiction. It\'s hard work, it\'s completely worth it. It doesn\'t just pause your life, it changes your heart and gives you a greater reason to fight harder to push the demons in your brain away that tell you to use again. This place saves lives if you have an open heart even when I had a closed mind at first. But both begin to open over time when you give the process a chance. Great knowing my higher power now, and my reason for being, thank you uturn.

Well I personally saw Steve smoke crack in you basement, along with shooting up meth. He also solicited my girlfriend for sex. I can describe Steve house to a tee, all the way down to the stickers on the wall in his basement garage where he keeps his motorcycle, game table and his Dodge journey. The whole town knows he a fraudulent peace of crap. The poor guys over there are the real ones that suffer. Please don't send your love ones over there. And don't use there thrift store. He needs to be ran out town.

I've seen a lot of people including my family go through this program and come out for the better. It does a lot that other places don't do like teaching responsibility and the value of hard work.

UTurn is one of the best choices to get set free and be built up in Christ, if you are willing to put your whole life in His path for you. By God's Marvelous Amazing Grace, day by day He will transform your old life into a beautiful story. God Bless you.

Finally, my 30 yr. old son agreed to go to a REHAB. He wanted to go to one that was Christ based. He arrived and the following morning, he was immediately " put to " work" OFF THE PROPERTY. The pastor was paid for my sons work. Within a week he was sent 3 states away...to PARK CARS ...he...again...was NOT COMPENSATED WHILE THE PASTOR WAS PAID HANDSOMELY FOR MY SONS LABOR. They were sent 3 states away with bread and lunchmeat..after 13 hr days. They had NO MONEY FOR FOOD..ONLY THE LUNCHMEAT AND BREAD. They were there...and could NOT CONTACT THE PASTOR FOR DAYS. THEY WERE VERY HUNGRY AND PENNILESS. MY SON and others felt sure the pastor was using drugs himself. The primary purpose for UTFC IS TO MAKE MONEY OFF THE ADDICTS. ITS A SCAM. DO NOT ATTEND. ITS CAUSED MANT PROBLEMS FOR MY SON. THEY ARE PROFITTING OFF THE DESPERATE FAMILIES AND ADDICTS.

I have been thru and was an overseer at U Turn For Christ Greeneville, Tn. and it is a tough program....I agree. But we are some tough n rough people in addiction. Let's face it we dug a big hole n made a huge mess of our lives. To 've in active addiction is Not to be a Saint, believe me. We hurt people, go to great lengths to deceive n manipulation in true form. We don't need a soft hand All the time...yes we need love in great levels n that means people that call us own our stuff, lies, n so forth. Who better than someone that has been there, got the happy meal n trophy too. Pastor has loved me thru some of my darkest n ugliest times in my life ...even after the program. He is not perfect by no means n makes mistakes as he goes n learns. We all do. I have put him thru some stuff n I'll be the 1st to admit it, but he has been the 1st one to not judge me n jump in my corner while telling me the true with love. I see where people don't understand or even hate the program. I've seen n been on both side. God has opened my eyes up to a lot over the years n I'm not going to understand His ways. So I leave it at that. I'm very grateful for Pastor and U Turn For Christ Tennessee. I have a lot of ladies I stay in contact with that are still standing too today. We can choose to see good or bad in anything or anyone. This program is not for everyone I do believe. We need boundaries, love, n God's Word. That's what you will get there. It's not for the faint of heart. It is for someone fighting for their life.

Great
I thank God for U-Turn for Christ Tennessee and the other ranches around the world. My son went through the program and because the grace of God is alive and moving at U-turn, my son is alive today. That is not an exaggeration. Before he went he was running with a bad crowd, had walked away from the Lord, and was headed to hell. U-Turn is tough love, bare bones, and hardcore. At the ranches you learn to trust God, not mommy, daddy or self. One of the commenters complained about the holes. Holes=Accountability. Don't follow the rules and you Will be held accountable, possibly for the first time EVER! Yes my son dug holes, many, many holes. I would have loved to have seen him and talk to him right after he went in but we had to stop enabling him and get out of God's way and let the healing start. Someone mentioned that there "child" may not have had food and water, not according to all the people that I have been blessed to meet from ranches all over the world. But wait, were they getting food and water when they were out getting high for days and days on end? I know the pastors' testimony, I know he's tough, and I know that Pastor knows as well as anyone that you Cannot be easy on addicts or they will walk all over you. And I know that he loves everyone who comes thru the ranch(s) and cries out for them to God. Is the program perfect? Nope because it's run by humans. Does it work? I've seen sooo many people delivered from their addictions. People that now are involved in and restored to their families. People that love God. People that have jobs. People that serve and love others. People like my son and so many others that I love and am blessed to call my brothers and sisters in Christ. Amenities? Meals and Nutrition? Watching a TN sunrise or tasting how good food really is when you haven't eaten from being high for so long or hugging someone who just gave their life to Christ. Prayer Changes Things!!! Praise You Jesus!!!

Very Good
My son was lost in addiction and it was through the influence of U Turn that he was able to find his way out. He is now a productive member of society and able to live a drug free life. Pastor is tough as are the overseers. Some people can’t handle it and speak badly of the program. I have personally seen the miracles happen. If someone is ready to do the hard work of ridding themselves of addiction and turning their lives over, this is the place. It’s not fancy, it doesn’t pamper snowflakes, but it works!

U-turn is A simple concept. they are teaching us that sometimes the last thing we try, is the first thing that works, JESUS. I have been involved with U-TURN for many years, they have helped me with my alcohol problems, Alcohol and drugs are destroying people and families, U-TURN is teaching us that through Christ lives can be saved.Greene county is very lucky to have this program.

The pastor at this facility is all about the money. He walks around with wad of money in his wallet, visits the house once a week if that. He takes the $750 check and cashes the check at the bank and keeps the money. He uses the men at the house as slaves and drives them to places to use as laborers and then gets paid for their hard work. You will work 9-10 hours a day in the hot sun and depending on pastors mood, he will decide if he wants to feed you during the day. He is a fraud and is being reported to the IRS to be investigated. STAY AWAY!!!

U-Turn 4 Christ in principle is amazing. They had an amazing overseer and one Pastor that was very helpful. However the Pastor stepped aside followed by the overseer soon after. The current Pastor is all about the money, not about the men. ..The \"Ranch\" is a modular mobile home full of mold and rats. Go to U-turn just not to the TN ranch.

I came here with a lifetime of problems and was put in many situations that challenged me to deal with them. I am so grateful for the tough love I received from the overseers and pastor who had to work with me and love me through all my nonsense. I am now able to take the next step with confidence in God.

They put me in many situations that challenged me to trust and depend on God. I\'ve struggled with a lot of personal problems and life situations that I have been in need of help working through. The staff here played a key role in guiding me through my daily struggles and encouraging me to press on and not give up. I am extremely grateful to God and U Turn For Christ Tennessee for giving me the tools I have so needed for success.

One of the staff members is not a pastor . Another staff member supports his behavior in "claiming" to not have control over the ministry. Stay FAR AWAY
