Triple R Ministries is an independent ministry that was birthed out of a childhood dream and the adult vision of Founder and CEO, Mark Welton. Mark has since met with the leadership of Big Oak Ranch in Birmingham, Alabama and is following their lead in many areas. The Board of Directors remain in constant contact with Big Oak Ranch and work in conjunction with Planting Oaks.
Planting Oaks is a branch of Big Oak Ranch that aids developing foster care ministries in the form of consulting and accountability.
