1. What would a typical week at the community look like?
Our goal on the community is to be completely off-grid, self-sufficient, and to worship God daily and enthusiastically.
The in-town property is a suburban homestead that is being used as a trial location for folks interested in learning more about us and experiencing community.
On the off-grid property, a typical day might include rising in the morning and having worship, breakfast, doing work outside/with the animals/for the community for a few hours, breaking for lunch, doing a bit more work in the afternoon, and getting ready to spend the evening with their family and/or community.
During the evenings we share dinner with our families and/or the community, and typically read the Bible, worship, do skills training on a given homesteading/preparedness topic or spend time with one other.
On Sundays, we spend the day in worship and prayer, and have a more robust community event.
2. What am I expected to contribute to the community in terms of money?
All members are expected to contribute to the financial health of the community. This could be a monthly contribution to the community per adult of an amount generally less than the price of renting a typical one bedroom apartment. This could also be a larger one time contribution if an individual was retired, for example. Contributions are made on a case by case basis after consultation with the Senior Pastor.
At the in-town property this contribution completely covers room, utilities, amenities, all food, etc. At the off-grid property this includes a space to put a trailer / tiny home / cabin, access to all amenities, all food produced at the property, etc.
No ownership stake is given in any property the community has. Arrangements may be made with some members to contribute labor in lieu of a monetary contribution, on a case by case basis.
3. What exactly is 14:6?
14:6 is an intentional Christian community roughly based on the Acts 2 model of fellowship. We have an in-town property in Georgia and an off-grid community in Tennessee. We aim to live our lives according to the teachings of The Bible. We are all required to pitch in, so we can enjoy a thriving and sustainable community.
