[before_listing id=0 images= youtube=null] I would like to start an off-grid community akin to L’Abri in either California, Oregon or Idaho. If you are a born-again Christian and would like to form an off-grid self-sustaining community that is open to visitors/students like L’Abri please contact me.[landbuddy_listing id=0 youtube=null]

    I have 40 acres to sell and desire a christian family to buy it. How do I put it up to sale or option? not sure where to put my advert?

    I am a home owner in San Mateo Ca and wanting to plan to sell and buy an off grid home in north eastern CA or somewhere away from the coast and away from the cities within a few hours drive of the bay area CA. I would like to be near other Christians who are also off grid and not too far from a small town and medical services for my elderly parents when needs arise. Also important to have a good place to grown lots of food and my own water source. Please contact me if you have any thoughts to help. I am thinking next year, fall 2016 maybe sooner if I feel God leading me to move on this sooner. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! Cheryl

    We just bought a house on 2 acres out in the woods in the Ozark Mountains and intend to get off the grid ASAP. See my website (click on my name) and email me (from the contact page) if you know this is where the Lord is sending you. Several of us on this page have pointed out that we really need to be like minded Christians if we hope to have a lasting, working fellowship (by any of the several understandings of community). So let me really be transparent about who we are spiritually and theologically. We are Pre Wrath, non cessationist, Acts model Christians.

    Not much time left. We need to win souls along the way on our journey of prepping and relocating. Wish there were more like minded people in my area , N. Cal.

    Thousands visit my website every month who are either wanting to get off the grid before the grid goes off, or are Christians who want to either go into community or organize a group to buy adjacent or close by property and practice the “Intentional Neighbor” approach to community. As I read all your messages I am amazed at the lack of maturity and understanding of what a true, committed, born again Christian really is. Also keep in mind that there are thousands of doctrinal groups out there. From my experience from organizing gatherings of so-called like minded Christians I have discovered that we were not nearly as like minded as we thought… and went our separate ways. Statistics show that communities, Christian or otherwise, fail in 2 to 5 years. And then there is the question of where is the best place, the safest location to do all this at. My website has dozens of articles and maps that will really inform you.

    My hubby and I are very interested in a Christian based community as well. We have some fund available for our portion and would love to build a cob home. We have farming, construction and basic understand of survival. We are currently in FL and open to just about any part of the US. Drop me line if you know of a place that will be moving forward with plans very soon! brendak1964@yahoo.com

    Tennessee is a good choice, according to this site: http://www.arkhaven.org/green_island_of_survival.htm. Don’t know if you believe in the prophetic, but this is very interesting.

    Hello, anyone here willing to go abroad across the Pacific? My hubby and I are starting a permaculture farm on a 4+ acre property… in Asia! The property next to ours, about 12 acres, is up for sale, and there’s a few others in the area that I know are still available. Like this one which is about an hour from where we live: http://www.islandsproperties.com/properties/treefarms-agri/buk-bau-ag-3043/index.htm. I’ve been praying and looking for others to help us or move next to or near us. It would be great if like-minded or like-spirited believers became our neighbors! 
    The good thing about these properties is that they’re already veritable food forests, there are fully grown, fruit-bearing trees already. If you’re curious about life in these parts and what it’s like for foreigners to live here, you can check these sites: http://www.expatforum.com/expats/philippines-expat-forum/ and http://www.livingincebuforums.com/ipb/index. However many of the members in those forums are non-believers and are only here on business or for retirement. Please feel free to connect with me. Email jd_lara777@yahoo.com.ph.

    I’m a 47 year old male and currently living in Texas. I’ve been a pastor and a motor cycle minister and thinking about getting off the grid in a year or so with other Christian like minded people to form a small community to be self sufficient .I’ve lived in Montana and worked on ranches and have carpentry skills, mechanic skills, and outdoorsman skills just to mention a few. o and by the way Rocco ,if you read Revelations, it tells us as Christians, we have the right to defend our selves against none Christians and we have the right to survive ,so guns is a weapon of our time to survive. I’m not saying we can go out and harm others but to protect us in the event of Revelations. Anyways we will be looking for like minded folks that are interested in this in about a year or so ,we need to find some land in rural area that’s affordable. This idea that I have doesn’t mean completely stay away from society, but to be self sufficient.

    I don’t understand how all these people would be willing to commune with someone just because he claims to be born again. I’m born again. I rarely meet other Christians who understand what that really means. But almost all of them claim it.
    Is this more a survivalist community, as I saw guns mentioned.
    What is the definition of your claim to Christian rebirth. Trust me, if it’s the real deal as I know it, you would have a participant. But I’m not going to blindly commit to just anyone who claims Spiritual rebirth and makes no mention of enlightenment, awakening, understanding, love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Write me if you understand these: roccocarrube@yahoo.com

    Brie, Could you give an update on your progress since your May post? Very interested and just starting to follow you. I had googled Christian off grid community…and found your wonderful site. Looking forward to your reply!!

    Oregon does not allow rain collection. They send peope to jail for collecting rain in a bucket. May not be the place for it. An atmospheric water generator would provide plenty of clean drinking water and they come solar powered like those from ecoloblue.com get one for a couple hundred bucks on amazon dot com and you can use a Solar Power Generator mysolarbackup.com from Solutions From Science. I’m an ardent believer in Y’shua living inn California looking for some Believers who are Sovereign Freeholders who would like to share a place off-grid though I currently use a wheelchair to go any great distance. I would be happy to move out of state. One could hit me up on FB and I would be more likely to see the msg. My email is dariefarmer@gmail.com

  16. Tom Noss

    I’m interested to hear what you find in the Tennessee area.

    Looking to live off the land in Idaho. Any community’s that are around I might be apart of. I am a Christian and what to be apart of a christian community

  19. Brie Hoffman

    So, are you looking for people Michiel Moland?

  20. Michiel Moland

    Wow, I had ask my boss [RON KOLAR of L’Abri] over ten years ago on buying land, he never got back to me. So I bought 40 acres of land to start off grid community Northern California. Small world..

  21. Brie Hoffman

    Ok, I went to Idaho and found the land too expensive so instead I am looking at Tennessee now. Tennessee is actually a freer state than Idaho. Also, you have a much longer growing season and you can pasture raise animals longer due to the warmer climate. I will let you know when I can get started.
