“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”
About Faith Farm Ministries
Faith Farm is dedicated to evangelizing the lost, making disciples, and sending those disciples to live for God.
Our Founder and History
A Legacy and 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 10-month, faith-based residential recovery program for men and women with 440 beds on more than 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. housing. A church, offices and classrooms enjoy a peaceful country setting that offers the opportunity for our students to experience and apply the spiritual and recovery truths they are learning.
Our Thrift Store is located 12 miles from the campus in downtown Okeechobee and provides another opportunity for our students to interact with the community and walk out the principles of recovery that will become a part of their life.
