the GROVE

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 geared to youth and young adults bent on changing the culture. It’s a multi-generational discipleship training ground using farm based ministry 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!

In November we held 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!


December brought the first boys campout complete with campfire, s’mores and an airsoft war in the woods.
 The new year launched  with a house full of girls, games and giggles.


February flew in with initiation of the Fight Club – a monthly Saturday morning activity for guys on prayer and learning practical work skills to construct our first tree house.

March saw us attending Winter Jam in Bossier City, a girls gathering and a night at the local rodeo.

Next up is tutoring /mentoring along with a host of other activities over the summer.

Stay tuned for more!
