What We're Sowing

What We’re Sowing

The principle of sowing and reaping can be found throughout the Bible in both the Old and New Testaments. Simply put, it means that you get out what you put in. “Sowing” (planting) is a metaphor for our actions, and “reaping” (harvesting) refers to the results of those actions.

Galatians 6:7-8 says, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” (NIV)

As this verse explains, the principle of sowing and reaping applies to all of our decisions, whether good or bad. Every choice we make has a corresponding consequence, which is why we must choose to follow Christ daily. The seeds we plant for God’s Kingdom will be multiplied to produce a great harvest!

“For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.” (2 Corinthians 9:10-11 NLT)

At The Inn, we are sowing seeds of reconciliation, unity, faith and discipleship, to name a few. Below are some examples of the “crops” being harvested from our ministry to young adults and families.


Markel - Heroes Week Testimony“I have been going to Heroes Week for the past three summers. The debate forums, the life apps and all the other things we do throughout the week show us how to be Christians in the world we live in today. That is my favorite part, especially because everyone comes with that expectation. We’re not here just to have fun and hang out, but to learn how to grow closer to God and closer in community with each other.” — Markel M.


Richard L - Summer Internship Testimony“Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the summer staff. It was a great opportunity and a huge blessing. Things were rising up in me that I thought I had dealt with, but the Lord was stripping things away and helping me to crucify my flesh. 


When I was told I was going to be a Challenger, I was honestly a little fearful, but it stretched me and allowed me to see gifts that I was not using. I also got to see some prophetic words unfold that were spoken to me in the past. 


I love The Inn. It’s very dear to my heart. When I first came as an intern, I was angry! Constantly getting mad when I was asked to do this or do that. But The Inn is a place that helps refine people to look more like the Savior, so I thank you all.” — Richard L.


“I don’t know anywhere else you can go for two weeks and focus on the most important things in your life, which are the eternal gifts we take with us: our relationships with God and the one we’re married to and our children. Our First Train to Reign was 17 years ago, and we had one child. Now we have four.


I would tell anyone—whether you have a healthy family or your family is just really hurting—come. Get over here, open your heart, make yourself available, don’t hold onto anything … and hear what God has to say.” — Anna H.

Our Healthy Things Grow fundraiser is helping to make even more testimonies like these possible. We are enlisting “Innkeepers” who will partner with us through monthly recurring donations to provide a solid base of support for our ministry.
