Our Founder

History – A Legacy & Vision

In 1951, Rev. Garland “Pappy” Eastham was an obedient servant of the Lord with a big vision.  He opened his church to the homeless men that lived on the streets of the Ft. Lauderdale, many of whom struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol. His first move was to have a safe place to offer an overnight stay with hot meals, but he also fulfilled the greatest commandment, to love one another. It troubled him that the problem continued and he saw the same men come back, time and time again, struggling against the stronghold of addiction. He realized that to obtain effective life change, the program needed to be extended, both in the amount of time the men stayed and the teaching they received. Faith Farm Ministries has evolved into a 9 – 10 month, faith-based, residential recovery program for men and women with 445 beds on over 1,500 acres in Ft. Lauderdale, Boynton Beach and Okeechobee. Although our physical locations are in south Florida, we are a national program attracting participants from across the nation and around the world.
