How Sixty-One Acres Began
Through many dreams (sleeping dreams), words from the Lord, confirmation with scripture, and passionate interests, He has revealed to both Christi and Darin a beautiful picture of this ministry. It has been revealed piece by piece- never seeing the full picture at once. In January, 2020, while on a family trip to Costa Rica, both Darin and Christi had numerous prophetic dreams of a grander picture of what this ministry is. Then, in November of 2020, while away on a personal retreat with Jesus, the vision was fully birthed of Sixty-One Acres.
The name derives from Isaiah 61, and the words Hear, Heal, Grow, and Give follow along with the progression of the chapter. Our purpose is to guide God’s sons and daughters through this chapter of Isaiah as they learn to Hear His Voice, Heal their hurts, Grow as a disciple, and ultimately Give it to others. Although for many years Darin and Christi struggled to find commonality in ministry endeavors, God has been faithful to bring 2 very different people with different passions and giftings together for the furtherance of His Kingdom! To God be the Glory and may we be found faithful with His vision for Sixty-One Acres.

Opening my eyes, I crawled out of bed and stumbled downstairs. It was another busy day with many tasks on the agenda- homeschool, afternoon kids’ activities, chores, dinner… I brewed the coffee and headed back upstairs to dress and spend time with my Lord. It was one of those mornings that I sat and pondered […]

Church Folk- we’re a strange brand! I suppose that’s what happens when you simultaneously have Holy Spirit living inside you and are still human. We hear the Truth, receive it, and begin our journey. We go to church. We “behave.” We learn some scripture. We serve. We get “plugged in.” We do all the good […]

The more I learn, the more I realize I have NO IDEA! God is taking me on yet another journey of even deeper learning how He created me. Self-reflection and self-discovery can be emotionally draining and exhausting! Especially when you thought you had already been there and done that! I suppose there are always more […]
