About SEEDS of Glory Farm
Purpose: The explicit purpose of SEEDS of Glory Farm is to glorify God. Mission: SEEDS of Glory Farm is a not for profit farm-based retreat committed to enriching the souls and glorifying the worth of children with IDD*. * "Intellectual/Developmental Disability is a severe, chronic disability due to a mental or physical impairment or combination of mental and physical impairments that start before a person is 22 years old, are expected to continue indefinitely, result in substantial functional limitations in major life activities, and reflect the person's need for lifelong individualized support or assistance." – University of Minnesota “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you” Jeremiah 1:5 Vision: To build a ‘Garden of Eden” where the marginalized can experience God-the- Creator; where they will be celebrated as His beautiful creations and where His love is lavished His upon them. "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:3, 5, 8 Values: Faith, Christian ethics, selflessness, compassion, humility, grace, integrity, accountability, fruitful labor. Drivers: Enriching life, strengthening mind body and soul, social and vocational education, fostering self-reliance, abolishing deprecating narratives and stereotypes, modeling and promoting sustainable agriculture. Who we are: We are volunteers––young and old–¬–who esteem life and Creation. We are faith-based and believing. We are inspired celebrators of life. We are compassionate illuminators of worth. We are insightful discoverers of abilities and passions. We are joy-filled soul nourishers. We are Christ-centered, spirit cultivating, life harvesting, love sharing servants of God. “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2:3-4 Who we are not: We are not pious or denominational. We are not medical professionals or trained counselors. We are not judgmental, patronizing, denigrating, enabling, self-serving, or self-aggrandizing. What we are: SEEDS of Glory Farm is so much more than just a place...we are a PURPOSE. Our farm is 70 acres of bucolic serenity in the rolling hills and rural farmlands of northern Kentucky where children with IDD and their families will enjoy a holistic and naturally therapeutic approach to personal discovery, self-worth, and self-reliance. Our PURPOSE is encapsulated within our name, SEEDS: ✝ Sew hope ✝ Elevate spirit ✝ Enrich life ✝ Develop ability ✝ Share grace all so that we may fulfill our divine and ultimate purpose––glorify God. We are a working sustainable agriculture farm and educational retreat where: ✝ The fruit of the spirit and the fruit of the earth grows. ✝ The unique gifts and spirit of each participant are discovered, illuminated, developed and celebrated. ✝ The eco-friendly practices of permaculture and sustainable agriculture are modeled and promoted. How we do it: We have five core objectives: 1) Sew hope. We bathe participants with unconditional, non-judgmental love and support so as to validate them as truly unique and cherished persons of worth. 2) Elevate spirit. We spend focused time with each participant while they interact with plants and animals thus realizing the holistically therapeutic and uplifting benefits of being submersed in the serenity of nature, of human/animal relationships, and in nurturing life. 3) Enrich life. We teach vocational skills that develop perseverance, facilitate emotional and physical strengthening, and enable and promote future self-reliance. 4) Discover ability. We keenly observe and interact with each participant so that, through self-discovery, each of their unique God-given abilities is illuminated, developed, and celebrated. 5) Share grace. We are forthcoming in our selflessness and nonjudgmental care and support for each other¬–staff to participant, participant to staff, participant to participant, and staff to staff–so as to develop reciprocal relationships which promote the furtherance and development of all. We also offer the fruits of our labor to the community–benevolently serving others and sharing our prosperity with those who want and need. Why we do it: SEEDS of Glory Farm was born in response to Divine inspiration. The retreat is the result and embodiment of faithful obedience to God’s calling to one man to “Buy a farm. Build a retreat for marginalized children.” Scripture says, “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” And this is why we do it––so that none of these little ones (children with IDD) is despised. We do it to glorify those who are marginalized by society, and also to glorify those who selflessly care for and serve them. We do it to impart hope and empowerment in order to stimulate self-discovery, self-esteem, self-reliance, and self-worth. We do it to serve the community as a model of innovation and implementation of the latest sustainable agricultural techniques. We do it to cultivate spirit, harvest life, and nurture souls. We do it to faithfully live out, and to help others live out His words, “Truly I tell you, with faith as small as a mustard seed...nothing will be impossible for you.” We do it to glorify God.
