Looking for Training on Faith in Agriculture? Look no further

ECHO is proud to help share information about the Second Annual Redeeming the Dirt Conference in Rockford, Alabama, July 26-29, 2015! This summer you can come together with other Christian farmers, gardeners, and agrarians from around the country as they seek to learn how to better express love for Jesus through the way land is tended. The goal of this conference is to encourage, challenge, inspire, and equip followers of Jesus to impact their communities and nation through agriculture.

At the Redeeming the Dirt Conference they will:

  1. Encourage Christian farmers to recognize how faithful stewardship of the land can be part of making disciples of Jesus Christ and glorifying God.
  2. Encourage those in Christian ministry to consider the power of modeling the Gospel and helping the poor through Jesus-centered agriculture.
  3. Provide practical training and tools for more productive, sustainable, and beautiful gardens and farms!

Register today as you consider how you might redeem the dirt.

When: July 26th-29th, 2015 Where: Poplar Point Camp, Rockford, Alabama

The conference changed (deepened) my faith in the Lord . . . The garden is a small piece of the big plan of sharing the Lord’s word.

What a life changing event . . . it was well worth our time away from our small homestead and business.
