We focus on Friendship & Community because if you tend to a farmer well, you will… Watch Hope Grow
Farmers across the US, Canada, and in New Zealand may have no idea how much support they could have in a moment’s notice. When trouble hits, without any support, it’s easy to feel isolated, alone, and helpless. No one who works as hard as a farmer deserves to ever be stranded without Hope.
We offer support to farmers across the US, Canada, and New Zealand when they need it most by turning Compassion into Action.
Sometimes “support” looks like rebuilding fences or cleaning barns. It may look like a friendly conversation or introducing them to a new friend who also knows what life’s like on the farm. Many times, it’s getting on our knees and praying for God to come rescue the sick, the lost, and the hurting.
We believe, “If you tend to a farmer well, you will watch Hope grow.”
We’re looking for volunteers who are ready to:
1 Bring Jesus
We cannot bring lasting Hope if we do not trust the Master of Hope, Jesus.
2 Bring Work Gloves
Love requires action. We put in real time and effort and are not afraid to get messy.
3 Bring “The Farm”
We give all we’ve got and make every effort to relate to life on a farm.
Volunteers can expect to do these every day:
1 Pray for Others
Partner with what God is already doing in another’s life.
2 Lend a Hand
Be ready to pitch in wherever help is needed most.
3 Be a Friend
Smile, listen, and genuinely care for the one in front of you.
The Pastor’s Piece – January 23, 2022
Somebody asked me one time if I ever run out of stories to tell? The answer is No. Never. Everything that happens in life is a story waiting to be retold – and it’s usually a lot funnier the second time around. A good friend gave me a coffee mug for Christmas that says: “Be careful – you might end up in a sermon illustration.”
FCFI Helping Farmers Recover from Tornado Damage in Kentucky
After the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, it was time to head back to western Kentucky to help farmers recover from the devastating tornadoes of December 10, 2021. Our base camp was moved from Moors Resort on Kentucky Lake to Dexter-Hardin United Methodist Church. Work continues on farms near the resort, where extensive tree damage downed fences that contain cattle, horses, goats, and other livestock. The Fellowship of Christian Farmers Disaster Relief Operations assembles volunteer crews to clear trees and rebuild fence to help farmers maintain their livestock.
