Galloping Grace Youth Ranch was founded by Max and Michelle Wade. For over ten years, Max was a homebuilder in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After many years of time away from his family, he and Michelle decided that it was time to make a change. Together they had the desire to live for more than themselves, and thus Galloping Grace Youth Ranch was born.
Galloping Grace Youth Ranch sits on a twenty-two acre lot the couple purchased in early 2005. They bought the land with full intention of building their dream home and creating a private oasis for their family. At the time of purchase, the couple never dreamed that this land would be transformed into a place of such peace and joy for so many people. As he often does, God had a plan for this property that involved much more that just a home for the Wade family.
