Kodiak Baptist Mission’s Heritage House
When our farm started producing products, we needed a place for people to come and purchase items. Giving people an opportunity to look at, touch, smell, and most importanly, experience what all is happening here.
I wanted it to be so much more that just a store. I wanted it to be a place of fellowship, a gathering spot for the young and old. A place to come hang out, listen to music, grab an ice cream cone with your family and relax. Giving people an opportunity to take a minute, soak in the time spent with their friends and family. A place to talk about Jesus and share your heart. It’s quickly become more important to me to visit with folks than sale items, but that was hard to do in the confined spaces that we were using. A small fire struck our facilities several years ago providing a need to renovate our pavilion area. This was the time to do something big. So planning began. Gene O’Handly, our maintenance Director, has been able to use his skills as a carpenter to build tables, countertops, bars, cabinets, and so much more. He’s been able to use the spruce around our campus to make this project unique. When I think about what creates fond memories and good times, I think about a home. A place people want to be at. A house that is full of love, devotion, fun, fellowship, and most importantly Jesus. So come on up to the house. You’ll be glad you did.
