Twenty-Five Years of Hope
This year, the Heartland community is celebrating twenty-five years of seeing people find hope through Jesus. The vision started with businessman and founder Charles Sharpe. As he drove across his Missouri farmland one day, he thought, “This would be a good place for kids.”
He was right. Charlie was thinking of a summer camp, but the vision grew into a full community with recovery centers, schools, and businesses all built around a local church. We call ourselves an intentional community because our intention is to introduce men, women, and children to the only hope that lasts – a life devoted to God, through Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Please feel free to join this year of celebration in person or online. Hope often becomes contagious, and we pray that you will catch it. You are also welcome to become a part of sharing the hope with others through your prayers, your friendship, and your financial investment.
