The Legacy Programs at Sky Ranch exist to invest in the lives of recent college graduates who desire to positively impact their future communities for Christ. We accomplish this through two distinct on-site programs: The Fellowship and the Master’s Program.

Fellowship

Our one-year program refining future leaders.

The Fellowship was started at Sky Ranch as a way to develop strong “life ethic” in the lives of young Christian leaders who have recently graduated from college. The program is designed to help those students understand and hone the potential they have to impact others and to nurture a passion for leaving a positive legacy in the communities they will serve.

Master's Program

Our two-year program equipping future leaders.

The Master’s Program is a cutting-edge partnership between Sky Ranch and Dallas Baptist University where students will pursue a graduate ministry degree through DBU’s online program while serving full time as instructors for the Sky Ranch School Programs department.
