Visiting Our Community

We would love to have you visit us and look forward to learning more about you. If you have any questions about what to bring ( shouldn’t bring), just ask. We do have a  policy  that anyone that visits our community the first time doesn’t come for more than two days.

We welcome all that love Jesus and follow him, although we have certain expectations you should keep in mind while among us.

We expect that our visitors will eat with us, attend our meetings, and work with us wherever they are needed. It is the best way to get to know each other. If you feel that is not possible please do not come.

Even though we may not have come to the same position on everything, we will respect your convictions, and expect you will do the same in return. We cannot welcome anyone that stands in spiritual opposition to the brotherhood here, that seeks to undermine it, or make proselytes from among us.

We expect you to become acquainted with what we believe before visiting here, or considering our community for your future home. A number of articles on this web site will help you understand us better.

We expect you to ask questions and will gladly answer what you honestly wish to know. We may also have questions for you, and look forward to learning from you as well.

At the same time, we have arrived at some working positions as a group and we cannot change our way of doing things to accommodate what every visitor might expect. We hope you understand, and that our time together may be one of peaceful growth in the Spirit of Jesus. If it turns out otherwise, we may ask you to leave.

We expect you to care for your own children, while here. Certainly, we will help where we can, and will gladly incorporate them into our communal activities. But you, as parents, will be responsible for them at all times.

If we meet one another with honest hearts, in humility, in the Spirit of Jesus, we do not doubt our time together will bring with it rich rewards. Praying, working, and eating together resolves more issues than many words.
