Malta Farms is a faith-based, sober living facility that aids men with their transition back into the community. These men come from addictive lifestyles, brokenness and neglect. Malta Farms offers men a safe place to experience the transforming power of the Lord. Our ministry is partially funded by a resident work-program, within the ministry (we are a 501(c)(3) program). With your prayers, partnership(s) and generous donations (God's provisions); our hope to see our men fully restored to their Maker and families will be realized. This process begins 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 Chadd 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 Antioc MI. The same year, Chadd and Brandi stepped into the role of Director at the ministry.
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.
Renee Salas joined the team in September 2020. He was a previous resident of Malta Farms in 2015. Renee presently serves as Public Relations Liaison. "As a former resident, I have experienced first-hand, the redemptive power of The Lord at Malta Farms."
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 haven to go where they could establish a firm beginning. Kent started to house men, and minister to them upon their release. Unfortunately, he alone, could only provide housing for more that a few men. Kent felt a call to start a ministry (Malta Farms). 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. So began, the Lord's ministry at Malta Farm's.
