YFI Announces New Transitional Housing and Equine Culture Impact Initiatives

We are excited to announce our two initial Impact Initiatives! These will be “Made Ready Ministries” and “Project 3218.”

Made Ready Ministries is inspired by Proverbs 21:31, “The horse is made ready for battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.” Throughout scripture the horse is seen as both an image of STRENGTH and PEACE. By nature, it is an animal of peace that can be EQUIPPED and MADE READY for any challenge it may face. Made Ready Ministries is focused on BRIDGING and STRENGTHENING COMMUNITIES through equine culture and proactively equipping members of the community for impact in the cause of Christ.

The efforts of this ministry will bring people together from various communities that may not ever have the opportunity to interact with each other or with equine culture. In doing so, we will give them an opportunity to share an experience that is NEW, PEACEFUL, and UPLIFTING by interacting and engaging with each other and many different parts of equine culture.

Project 3218 is inspired by Isaiah chapter 32 and verse 18, “My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.” We believe having a home is foundational to providing peace and purpose in the lives of people. When individuals and families feel safe and secure, they can even more seek a relationship with Christ and others.

With Project 3218 we desire to both build the Clarksville and Montgomery county communities physically and spiritually. This project will introduce opportunities to expand life skills and financial literacy by providing various stages of transitional housing. Our vision is to create opportunities for participants in the project to graduate these stages to ultimately owning their own home with the capacity to support themselves and their family spiritually, relationally, and financially.
