God's Garage

Since 1995, Up and Out has provided horse experiences for children at the ranch in New Era, the Inner-city of Grand Rapids, and now at the new Equine Facility in Mears.

​Riding For Christ



In 2010 Up and Out opened a community center in Grand Rapids where all came together to share their talents through dance, weight lifting, boxing and MMA.

In 1987, Up and Out started in the old American Laundry Building on Division St in Grand Rapids, MI.  It consisted of two basketball hoops, some weights, a pool table and Kevin Rigg. There Kevin met and mentored many kids and their families.  Today many of the original members of God's Garage are still involved with Up and Out.
