Our "WHY?"


Rustic Grace came about to help sustain and further our ministry, Indiana Dream Team.

IDt is an Alternative Sentencing Option for some young men that face jail or prison time that are desperate for real change. Breaking the chains. Restoring the Family. Discipling Young Men that are Caught in a Destructive Lifestyle.

The world we live in has many distractions to take our eyes away from what really matters.  The vicious cycle of addiction and court troubles have created generations of broken families and broken men. It continues to get worse.  Our Ministry focuses directly into these core issues and helps develop and restore troubled men into wholeness.  They can then become the men that God has called them to be.


 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in ALL THESE THINGS we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS through HIM who LOVED US.”

Romans 8:35-37

It all began when someone had a small barn they wanted taken down.  We took our young men and tore down the barn. The owner allowed us to keep all wood and beams from the tear-down. Mother's Day was approaching and many of the men asked if they could make something special for their Mothers using some of the barn wood.  A few of them made LOVE shelves for their mothers.  People absolutely loved the shelves, so we kept making them and decided to sell them at shows and festivals. 
We began getting MANY requests to build other items from the barn wood, which were built and sold.  Rustic Grace opened our store in Martinsville, Indiana, in 2015.
What started out as a service project, has become a thriving business for our young men.  Being a not-for-profit, people donate their barns and receive a tax write-off.  We are bonded and insured for barn tear downs.
We are excited to announce our NEW STORE opening in the beginning of 2020, in beautiful Nashville, Indiana.
