Resilient Christian Communities are self-sustaining and off-grid Christian communities, providing a sustainable and radical way of intentionally living for God. House Churches provide a model for a closer relationship with Jesus and with fellow believers
Want to radically live for God? Resilient Christian Communities are self-sustaining, off-grid Christian communities that provide a sustainable and Christ-centered way of life.
We are looking for a few followers of Jesus who are interested in creating Resilient Christian Communities (RCCs). The first community will be developed on 35 acres, 50 miles east of Colorado Springs, CO, in a rural setting. We are working in a rural setting initially because there are fewer rules and regulations than an urban location.
You will learn how to build your own, moveable, off-grid home, featuring solar power, water catchment and natural food production. When you leave, you take your home with you.
RCCs will provide examples of radical Christian living across America. The Bible is our guide. Homeschooling is encouraged. Simple, debt-free living is encouraged. Members of RCCs are encouraged to develop skills that are locally marketable.
Freedom in Christ is emphasized. There is no leader other than Jesus. The Bible is our manual for living and our guide for problem solving. Members are encouraged to come and go as they feel led. Living in Christian community is more challenging than living like the rest of the world. If you're looking for easy or perfect, this is not it.
You will need to provide for yourself. While sharing is encouraged, there will be no free rides. Building your own small home will require at least $10,000. What you build will be portable and belongs to you. You need to provide for your expenses for one year. There are no fees or charges to be paid to the community. Sharing is voluntary, with no coercion.
How does it work?
The first Resilient Christian Community will be developed on 35 acres, 50 miles east of Colorado Springs, Colorado in a rural setting. Once your small home is built, you own your home and can move to other homestead communities in the States. You will learn how to build your own moveable, off-grid home, featuring solar power, water catchment, and natural food production. Each community includes up to 10-12 people and runs on a House Church model. House Churches grow quickly and organically, so once a group grows to more than 12 members, a new RCC is established.
How much does it cost?
Living in a RCC does not cost anything as land and training are provided. Your only expense will be building your own small home at a minimum of $10,000. You have up to a year savings to provide for the 12 months you build your small home. Once you build your small home with teaching and training from RCC leaders, the home is yours and available to move to a different homestead.
Is this a commune?
No. RCC’s mission is to provide examples of radical Christianity living across America and freedom in Christ. Jesus is our leader. We use the Bible as our manual for living and our guide to solving disputes. We encourage our members to come and go as desired.
