GOD, THE FATHER, COULD HAVE GIVEN ANY JOB TO ADAM, THE FIRST MAN.
He chose to make him a gardener.
RENEW MINISTRIES AT FARM 58 resides on 180 acres of farmland with rolling hills, pristine pasture and mixed woodland, nestled atop the Cumberland Plateau in Dunlap, Tennessee. We preach the gospel, disciple the hurting and raise FOOD WORTH EATING, all through sustainable agriculture.
There is no financial cost to the men or their families to enter into Renew Ministries at Farm 58, Jesus said, "freely you have received, freely you give." Instead, we invite families in the Chattanooga area to purchase produce and proteins raised by the men in the ministry at the farm. This, in turn, helps to offset the cost of running the ministry.
FOOD. WORTH. EATING.

A BLUE COLLAR FARM, WITH A PURPLE PURPOSE.
THE FARM IS JUST A FRONT.
Kingdom business is our first agenda. We always point men to the truth – The Holy Bible. We believe the Lord has given us a farm to faithfully invest in the lives of men and their families while working hard on the land. Farm 58 is an environment conducive for a man’s heart to change. God the Father could have given any job to Adam, the first man, and He chose to make him a gardener. When God placed Adam in a perfect garden and in perfect communion with his Maker, God knew that He was creating an atmosphere that would minister to his heart better than any other job could. So, we mimic the same method.
The Bible is enriched with agricultural analogies that become alive when you can experience the Gospel with your very own hands. Sowing, reaping, grafting, pruning, shepherding, tending, cultivating, are all part of the Gospel message.
Farm 58 was donated to us for a purpose, a “purple” purpose to help build a foundation based on God’s Word and His principles. Purple is the color of royalty, and we serve the King of Kings. At full capacity, 20 men live, work, and experience Farm 58 in a distraction free environment. Though every man’s journey is different and God’s timing is unique to us all, a man who has displayed humility and faithfulness during his time at the farm will then transition to Renew Ministries –at Calvary Chapel in Chattanooga, which serves as phase two.
