Gene Archibek was one of several Saddleback Church volunteers helping to prepare 175 acres of property for a new satellite campus and retreat center. But, as he was walking the land, he saw an abandoned tractor that took him back to his childhood on the farm. “I come from about four generations of farming. I ran away from it when I was a kid. I couldn’t stand it,” Archibek recently told The Christian Post. At that moment, he said God showed him a new plan for the property.
