Malta Farms is a faith based sober living facility that assists men with their transition back into the community. These men typically come from addictive lifestyles and neglect. We offer them a safe place to experience the transforming power of the Lord. We are a 501c3 program, however, the ministry is funded by business run within the program along with the gifts of generous donors. Our hope is to see men fully restored to their Maker, and to their families. This process takes place when a man encounters the Living God.
Chadd and Brandi Everett
The Everett Family started volunteering at Malta Farms in 2004. In 2006, they felt called to come on board part-time and work alongside the staff of Malta Farms. As the Lord was moving on the heart of the director to potentially move into the mission field, Chadd and his family had quit their full-time jobs and officially became full-time staff. In 2008, Kent and His family left the farm to enter into full-time mission training with Antioch MI. The same year, Chadd and Brandi stepped into the role of Director at the ministry.
Shiloh Humble has been part of the Malta Farms staff since June of 2021. Shiloh started visiting the Farm in early 2021, coming out to spend time with the residents, play guitars with Jim, and to help out in any way he could.
As a staff member Shiloh graduated from Christ For the Nations (CFNI), in Dallas TX, in 2003, and is currently finishing his Bachelors degree. Shiloh was a Deputy Sheriff in California for 12 years, and was retired due to PTSD. This, and many other factors, led Shiloh into battling with addiction. God won that battle and now has a new purpose for Shiloh, here at Malta Farms.
Jim and Brandy Helms
Jim and Brandy joined the team in April of 2020. Jim currently holds the position of Operations Manager. This couple has such a heart for restoration Ministry. Their testimony of the redemptive power of Jesus has become a beacon of hope for the men they work with. Jim is currently teaching all of our classes. He is a very talented musician and loves to lead our men in worship. We are so excited to have this family on board.
After several years of volunteering and leading classes at the county jail, Kent Forester began to notice a need. Many inmates who had been released would immediately return to previous lifestyles; They had no safe place to go where they could establish a firm beginning. Kent then started to house men and minister to them upon their release. Unfortunately he could not provide housing for more that a few men, so he looked into starting a legitimate ministry. After discussing a potential site for the ministry with Kent, a local business owner agreed to provide the majority of the finances needed to purchase the property.
