COMMUNITY IMPACT!

I Was Hungry

Crown Financial Ministries and Foundations for Farming have combined forces with their proven methodologies to serve those dependent upon the land by empowering the people to be the best farmers in the world, to learn to operate as a God designed family and to faithfully steward their local resources.


We train farmers to steward both their land and the harvest from the land. We do this by teaching agricultural skills which bring about a substantial increase in crop yields and by financial training to manage the increase in resources. We also include a training component by Family Impact to strengthen the family unit. All three components are vital to bringing an end to hunger, dependency and poverty.


THE VISION:

We envision a world where the least of these are filled with the hope of Christ and able to free themselves from chronic hunger, outside dependency and the grinding despair of poverty.


“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…" Matthew 25:34


THE MISSION:

Our mandate is to empower those who are dependent on the land with the best agricultural skills, family skills and stewardship training to faithfully use their local resources.


Our mission is achieved when we see families united, working together to increase crop yields, make a profit on their labors and manage their income and resources to escape hunger, dependency and poverty.


WHAT MAKES I WAS HUNGRY DIFFERENT?

We have a proven, long-term solution to chronic and generational poverty.


We seek to empower people to grow in the three areas where they are most broken: food, family, and finances. The I Was Hungry program does this through an agricultural entry point by teaching people how to feed themselves, provide for their families, and be faithful with a profit.


Through I Was Hungry, community leaders are trained to take responsibility and be faithful with their land and it’s harvest. Most importantly,


80% of the training is focused on addressing issues of the heart.

The training is designed to illustrate the very character of Christ, which every team member is taught to emulate.


Teachings of stewardship, faithfulness, humility, and unselfishness are woven throughout the skills training to develop character in the leader and bolster resiliency during various trials in life and opposition in the community.


Isaiah 58 talks about the true fast. It is about making a plan for the poor. Not just by throwing some scraps, or giving out of our surplus. It is about feeding the poor and breaking the yokes of oppression and poverty. It is the gospel with boots on, beginning with a love for the poor.
