The Unhindered Life
Continuing the Tradition
In the early nineties, Dr. John Walker was clearly called by God to establish Blessing Ranch Ministries, a Christian Leader resource and renewal center. Since that time, Blessing Ranch has fulfilled its mission to restore and renew Christian leaders for effective Kingdom service through professional Intensive Counseling services. The goal has always been to help leaders live well, lead well, and finish well, and as a result, the ministry quickly became highly sought after. In 2011, Dr. Charity Byers, daughter of Dr. Walker, joined the team as a psychologist. Dr. Byers was named CEO in 2017 and actively leads the ministry since Dr. Walker’s retirement.
After using The Unhindered Model of transformation for over 25 years with thousands of Christian leaders, Dr. Walker and Dr. Byers shared their knowledge and expertise through their book, Unhindered: Aligning the Story of Your Heart. The release of the book in 2020 catalyzed a growing desire to multiply the reach of Blessing Ranch Ministries and bring transformation to Kingdom-minded churches and organizations in more accessible ways. Where the Intensive Counseling has always focused on renewal for leaders, The Unhindered Life initiative was born to resource leaders and further fulfill Dr. Walker’s original call.
The Staff Experience is designed to be facilitated by a Leader from your team who has been trained by The Unhindered Life. While Staff Experience Leaders are equipped to effectively facilitate and guide this process, their services are not a substitute for professional counseling, therapy, or coaching. The Unhindered Life has professional resources available for the personal care that is needed beyond this experience.
