Bryan Rucker's story shows that it is possible to overcome the difficulties of a broken past and get an undeserved second chance. For most of his life, Bryan Rucker was a gang member who sold narcotics. Raised in a low-income neighborhood in Houston, Texas, by his mother and grandmother, Bryan faced several adversities and oftentimes found himself in legal trouble.
Shortly after relocating to West Monroe, Louisiana, Bryan was introduced to the loving grace of Christ, which significantly altered his life and gave him a new purpose. Employed by Duck/Buck Commander, Bryan became a part of a TV show, which gave him a platform to tell his story and share the Gospel.
Eager to help others overcome their struggles, Bryan became an addiction counselor through the Celebrate Recovery program at White's Ferry Road Church. Today he uses his own life experiences to help lead others out of darkness from their hurts, habits and hang-ups. In 2021, Bryan became a Director of Celebrate Recovery and a staff member at White's Ferry Road Church. Additionally, he serves as a counselor and therapist in Louisiana. Bryan also owns a sober living program, and he has spent the last seven years helping people find hope and healing in Jesus Christ.
