Equipping God’s people to practice radical hospitality
Equipping God’s people to practice radical hospitality.
We build training grounds for hospitality by shaping The Farm at New Garden Park and our own home into welcoming gateways for the Body of Christ.
As the Farm and Park Director for Church of the Redeemer we have taken the helm of Redeemer’s Farm at New Garden Park. We’re about to launch “Farm to Flourish,” an employment program for members of our community facing challenges to employment.
WRITING AND TEACHING
We are committed to creating resources that help the Body of Christ share the Good News through meals, celebrations, comfort, and storytelling. We are currently completing the proposal for a book on “radical hospitality for ordinary people.”
We see our own home as the foundation of our ministry at Redeemer. To that end, we have begun construction on a “Christ Room” where we can welcome the homeless, the stranger, and others who need a place to lay their heads.

Every family should have a room where Christ is welcome in the person of the hungry and thirsty stranger.St. John Chrysostom

Fully Funded by 2025
Even as we raise funds for the continuation of our ministry at Redeemer, we are committed to creating sustainable revenue streams that will allow us to fulfill God’s call on our family without outside support by 2025. These revenue streams may include
- Salary from Redeemer, which will increase from $12,000 (2022) to $30,000 in 2023. Redeemer has committed to increasing their contribution to $60,000 by 2025.
- Income from a missional business, such as rental homes.
- Home production of organic soaps and naturally dyed products, which Bethany markets online as Shire Home Goods.
“Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him,
and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you;
the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Isaiah 58:6-8 (ESV)
