Our neighborhood probably resembles your own community in many ways. There are businesses in Heartland — from dining and laundry services, to graphic design, auto body shop, and a country store — as well as a school, a college, a church, and even our own volunteer fire department. The houses are filled with families who live and work here. But one thing that makes Heartland unique is that we are an intentional Christian community.
An intentional community is simply one that is built around a specific interest or goal (such as a golfing community, a retirement community, or an artist colony). Ours happens to be a group of people who believe Jesus is the answer to every issue we face – including addiction, anger, broken homes, and financial crises. Men and women who commit themselves to the process of restoration find help at Heartland through the power of God and the encouragement of people who have walked a similar path.
There is so much to experience in the middle of this cornfield. Take a tour and see our cow and goat dairy, the largest in the great state of Missouri. Visit the New Creation Country Store to pick up some bulk foods or Heartland Creamery cheese, grab a cup of coffee and head over to the Heartland Ford Museum to see vehicles on display spanning 1906 to 2012. Plus, we even have an exotic zoo with zebras and camels.
Heartlandmissouri.com serves a directory of the Heartland Community. In addition to the non-profit ministries at Heartland (including schools, recovery programs, and a church), the local businesses of Sharpe Holdings are among the largest employers and tax-payers in this area. Click through the pages, view the virtual tours and photos of our facilities, and we hope you’ll make plans to come and visit soon!
