HISTORY: LMF, Inc. is a federally recognized 501(c)3 tax-exempt Christian organization which plants and establishes churches while providing biblical spiritual covering of accountability to pastors and churches around the world. Since 1999, we have provided five-fold ministry seminars, workshops and training to domestic and international pastors and church leaders. We registered Holy Grounds Training Center (HGTC) with the Internal Revenue Service in 2008 as part of LMF, Inc. HGTC is the final component of the Liberty Ministry Fellowship, Inc. vision as mandated by God.
PURPOSE: Provide a place of respite for pastors (3-5 day); Worship, Prayer, and Soaking rooms; conference areas for Christian organizations to meet; train in 5-fold ministries; Joy Center for The Grieving; and Media Outlet for Christ centered teaching.
OBJECTIVE: Acquire land and build the Holy Grounds Training Center (HGTC) where LMF, Inc can implement the vision mandated by God to us to provide a quality Christian atmosphere for Christian groups to train the body of Christ while showing Jesus to all who attend.
THE FACILITIES: HGTC has three phases. Funds raised from each phase with exception of ELIJAH’s Place will fund the next phase in full or part. PHASE 1 builds three ELIJAH’s PLACE Cottages as a place of respite where pastors can stay 3 – 5 days at no cost as our way of sowing back into the body of Christ and God’s Kingdom. PHASE 2 builds the PSALM 23 building a multipurpose area for worship, prayer and soaking and meetings. PHASE 3 builds a dining hall, commercial kitchen, maintenance, and staff laundry, in addition to three additional Elijah’s Place cottages.There are also 12 guest rooms: and meeting areas. Finally, PHASE 4 the ACTS 2 building, has the same square footage of the Psalm 23 for meetings and presenting plays and dramas as an outreach and witnessing tool of HGTC (operating with solar panels providing energy) has a lobby, except it has 40 guest rooms of maximum capacity of 80. Upon completion of building projects, the total maximum overnight guest capacity is 100.
RESIDUAL INCOME: We are deeply grateful to GOD our provider for those who support the ministry. Every effort is made to keep HGTC self-supporting through residual income. Therefore, the facility provides space for rent to small and large Christian groups who agree with and believe, as well as practice our tenants of faith to hold meetings. Churches can hold conferences, women's and men's meetings, youth conferences, board, or volunteer training. Multiple churches have committed their annual meetings, conferences, and training at our facility once we open.
COMMUNITY IMPACT: Our meeting facilities and any vacant rooms at the time of a life-threatening disaster (hurricanes, fire, tornado damage), will be converted for a community shelter.
CAPITAL CAMPAIGN FUNDING REQUIREMENTS: The projected total cost of 5.4 million dollars will acquire land; pave road on property; build conference/training center with meeting rooms; commercial kitchen with dining room. We will also purchase furnishings and equipment to operate. Meeting rooms have removable room dividers. Max seating in the largest conference hall (A & B) without dividers is 100, plus meeting rooms C and D seat 25 each yielding a combined total of 150 event participants; maximum seating in dining hall is 200; and maximum capacity for overnight guests is150. We are seeking benefactors to support our capital campaign.
