Living Waters Farm Expansion
The Living Waters Farm is a gift to the world from God Almighty...and visiting this farm is life changing for all! It's truly a farm-for-all, and we often hear words like "it feels like home" or "it's SO peaceful here"...that's what the way things look when they are in the hands of the Living God...indescribably beautiful!
The farm is situated on 22.5 acres approximately 40 miles north west of Washington, DC and it sits at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Once part of a 1,000 farm; the farmhouse was home to the original farming family, and it was subdivided out of the 1,000 acre tract when the heirs of the estate of the original owner couldn't pay the inheritance taxes. The property was purchased in 1998 and no commercial farming has taken place since that time.
When the farm first changed hands, it was named "Trinity Acres" as a testament to the faith of it's owner. In 2015 the name was officially changed to it "Living Waters Farm".
The Living Waters Farm has grown in popularity since our 1st Living Waters Farm Event in 2016 where 27 states and 3 countries were represented here. And now, God has whispered a vision for us to "DO EVEN MORE" in His name here at the farm. For this reason, we're embarking on a 3 Phase farm expansion project. Phase I is the most pressing of all due to our immediate needs and current commitments. In this Phase, we will be making changes to the existing 3600 sq ft horse barn that will allow us to eliminate the need to rent expensive tents to house our guests in the future. We're driven to "restore" and not replace, so we'll be moving the existing 2 inch white oak walls and "pushing" them back to the outer walls to help protect the nature of the horse barn while we open it up! Once we complete this Phase of our project, we'll be able to accomodate 0-275 people at any time, for any purpose. We NEED your support!
The funds that we raise will cover the necessary materials, equipment rental to do the work, and we'll be contributing sweat equity via volunteer labor. In the event we raise more than needed for Phase I, we'll keep the funds in reserve for Phase II.
Thank you in advance for your heart for the Living Waters Farm and for the Plans that God has for us all. Your prayers throughout this exciting time will be greatly appreciated.
FYI - we are also launching a Kickstarter campaign shortly. A link will be provided once that site goes "live". Kickstarter encourages "incentives" to donors so we're sharing them with you here also!

A lot has happened at the Living Waters Farm, thanks to the generous hearts that gave TIME, MONEY & TALENT to bring this Plan to reality. This gofundme site does not reflect some of the giving that was received outside of the fundraising platform. Earl & Regis Stephens, Richard Alligood and Alvin Jaufre drove to the farm from Louisiana and they worked SO HARD to do their part to expand the walls on one side of the barn. You can't put a price tag on the value of 4 men giving 4 days of labor, that's for sure! Hisham Masry (Richmond Kentucky) donated the funds to purchase ALL of the wood necessary to structurally support the barn and expand the walls. Bill Powers (San Antonio Texas) donated much needed items like ladders, paint, brushes, masks AND MORE! Countless friends prayed and some dropped by to bring food for our volunteers. It's been an amazing site to see! Every little piece of TIME, MONEY & TALENT is greatly appreciated and no amount is too small from where we're sitting! Right now, WE NEED HELP with one more IMPORTANT PIECE of Phase I of the project! We need to raise $1383 IMMEDIATELY to hire the equipment and the operator necessary level the floors that were once beaten down by four legged friends so that they're suitable and safe for our 2 legged friends. Please consider helping us achieve this goal ASAP! No amount is too small!!! Please share this site with your friends! Thank you in advance. Blessings to you and yours!
