1. What would a typical week at the community look like?
For those that work a Monday through Friday job, they will spend their weekdays taking care of their obligations and join their family and/or community in the evening.
For those working in the community during the weekdays, a typical day might include rising in the morning and having 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 most Saturdays we work on the community land for the communities benefit.
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 monthly to the community, per adult, an amount less than the price of renting a typical one bedroom apartment. We consider this a lease of sorts, a month to month commitment toward what the community is doing.
At the in-town property this 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, nor is any buy-in, liquidation of assets, or any other lump sum required. Contributions are made on a monthly basis; if a member’s involvement in the community were to cease, their contribution ceases that month. 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 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.
