I have been reading lately about George Washington Carver and hope to share some about this Godly steward of the land at the conference. Tuskegee is actually not far from our farm. Here is a quote from Dr. Carver regarding doing research and problem solving:

“I discover nothing in my laboratory. If I come here of myself I am lost. But I can do all things though Christ. I am God’s servant, His agent, for here God and I are alone. I am just the instrument though which He speaks, and I would be able to do more if I were to stay in closer touch with Him. With my prayers I mix my labors, and sometimes God is pleased to bless the results.” (From the book George Washington Carver, by Rackham Holt, pg. 232, 233)

Registration Open for the 2015 Redeeming the Dirt Conference

We are now accepting registration for the 2015 Redeeming the Dirt Conference, July 26th-29th! Although we are still working on details at this point we are anticipating what God might do as we seek to be more obedient in the areas of faithful stewardship and discipleship. As we join other brothers and sisters from around the country and world, we look forward to the fellowship, testimonies, and encouragement that will result.
We are at a critical time in the world with followers of Christ being persecuted, feeble economies teetering on the edge of collapse, and the number of poor increasing. While we trust that God is in control and working out His perfect plan, we also have a responsibility to advance the Kingdom of Christ in our own areas of influence. At the Redeeming the Dirt Conference we will seek to:
1. Encourage Christian farmers to recognize how faithful stewardship of the land can be part of making disciples of Jesus Christ and glorifying God.
2. Encourage those in Christian ministry to consider the power of modeling the Gospel and helping the poor through Jesus-centered agriculture.
Please consider joining us as we consider how we might redeem the dirt!
This year we will be launching the first USA Foundations for Farming Training Station located at Rora Valley Farms. For those of you interested in more thorough equipping we also hope to offer a special in-depth training to take place after the conference. More info on that later.
Because of our facilities we have limited space for this conference so don’t delay in prayerfully considering whether the Lord would want you to attend. Click on the registration button below for more info or to register.
