A dream began in 2009 which became a reality in 2015. The Grove is a place, it’s a mindset and it’s a movement for personal and local transformation through the power of Christ.
Primarily geared to youth and young adults we are bent on changing the culture. It’s a multi-generational farm-based discipleship training ground to grow in the Lord. Whether learning new practical skills like gardening, canning and milking a cow or spiritual lessons on how to pray, worship and hear the voice of the Lord it’s all done under the umbrella of community. Partnering with the local church our goal is individual and local transformation, exchanging hope for despair and bringing glory to God!
Starting with a team of young adults
we’ve attended sporting and musical events, initiated workshops and outreaches to connect with the local youth. Thanks to our partnership with Gravel Hill Baptist Church (Brother Sam Yancy) we’re off to a great start!
Our Gobble-la-la-Palooza outreach event! Despite a blue norther blowing in the competition was fierce and fun complete with a pumpkin chunkin relay race!
Our first boys campout complete with campfire, s’mores and an airsoft war in the woods. By morning the ground was covered in frost!
A house full of girls, games and giggles and we made it to church on time the next day!
Meet JeridJerid, a local teen, came to work with us at the farm over a year ago – the transformation in him has been remarkable. He was quiet, reserved, and struggled in school when we first met – now his skills (both on the farm and in school) and confidence have grown exponentially. He is a hard worker, willing to do any chore without complaint and has a special rapport with all the animals. We’re super proud of Jerid and the man he is becoming.
