Intentional Christian Neighborhood

We Are Now Accepting Community Minded Christian Homesteaders

Intentional Christian Neighborhood


Christian Living Communities




The people God is sending to us are people who are looking for a safe place to live a self-sustainable lifestyle in one of the safest places in America. An intentional neighborhood where everyone has the pride of ownership and the luxury of having common areas that allow neighbors to have peace of mind. At ArkHaven our members remain autonomous while living in community.

God is speaking to Like-minded, Spirit lead truth seekers to assemble with other Christ-centered people in these great historical times in history. We can’t do it alone. We want to live in a neighborhood of like-minded Christians… intentionally.



Are you a Christian Prepper who is looking for a safe haven, a Goshen, a homestead to move to in these end-times?

Our concept of Christian Community is being called “Intentional Neighbors”.  Would you like to live in a Christian neighborhood where everyone is intentionally committed to each other? As Jesus said, we love our neighbor as ourselves! Mark 12:31

We live deep in the beautiful Ozark mountains and we would like to invite you to be our neighbor.

This is a vision and an invitation being fulfilled and is happening right now!  Come and see for yourself!

We are inviting like-minded Christians like you who are being led by the Lord to join us in this Ozark Christian prepper paradise, so we can encourage and assist each other. We would love to hear from you if you feel you are being led towards this kind of prophetic, end-time ministry.

We define Intentional Neighbor Christian Community as a housing development for like-minded Christians in an isolated, “Goshen” type of environment. Our intentions are to eventually become resilient and self-sufficient people, no matter what the economic or political climate maybe for most of our country. We understand it may be a worthwhile goal to be able to live off-grid, as it would be exhibiting the better part of wisdom in the coming years. Because life is a process of having our needs met physically, mentally, and especially spiritually, it is a
worthwhile goal to be able to do that with our friends and neighbors. And, by the grace of Yahweh, we hope to be able to minister outside our community.

Many “Intentional Neighbor” communities –like the commendable Bruderhof– are pacifistic and believe in the “common purse” practice where no one owns anything personally.  We are not.  Everyone in our community will own their house and acreage and livestock and car and will handle their own income and possessions.  But we will share in the community work as best we can.  We might be asked to work in the greenhouse or milk the goats, or gather eggs, or build houses, or do some other tasks that we really like to do. For more information on this, see our articles titled, “Our Concept of Intentional Neighbors” and “Investor Preppers.”

There will be some diversity in doctrines, races, and languages. But it is time we would “strive together” and not strive among
ourselves because “in Christ, we who are many are one body, and each member belongs to one another” (Rom. 12:5 Berean Study Bible).

We will remain mission-minded, knowing that survival is about being able to serve with the right heart towards others. We believe this is a part of preparing the Bride of Christ in these prophetic last days. Inbound compounds turn into self-serving
cults, and history shows us this should be avoided. 
We will live the agrarian, homesteader lifestyle that has sustained society well through the best and worst of times since Noah’s Ark landed in the Ararat mountains. We are Neo-pioneers. We are just a bunch of quiet, gentlefolk… intentional friends… not doing anything to draw attention to our community.  You might say that we are low-key, down-home, intentional neighbors hiding in plain sight.  More simply said, this is an intentional neighborhood of Christians.

We are inviting like-minded Christians to join us in one of two ways. Some can buy land and build on it and even build cabins to rent out to those who cannot buy but can rent. Others need a turnkey operation, and we are able to meet that need as well.  We sell land by the acre.  Tell us your needs and we will do all we can to meet those needs.

Even though our community is in a safe, serene sanctuary sort of location, life is still not guaranteed. We all can agree that the safest place on earth is in the center of God’s will for us, and outside of Jesus Christ, there is no safe place. Will we remain in the love Messiah has shown towards us, and continue that love towards one another, as we fellowship with our Intentional Neighbors?

Yeshuah combined 9 of the 10 commandments into one in this passage. I sum it up like this. We love Jesus and we are as willing to live and die for our ArkHaven neighbor as we are for Him.

Since we are forming an “intentional neighbor” type of Christian Community, and since Jesus said Christians are one body and are neighbors, I really hope we all will put emphasis on this concept. 

Our success as a community will rest heavily on really believing and practicing what Jesus has commanded us to do.

Matthew 22 KJV

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
