There will be various jobs working alongside other believers available on Campus. These positions will help sustain the everyday expenses that we all will have along the way, and offer an opportunity to step away from the powerful anointing received while in worship. This time set aside to interact with the world allows the anointing you carry from the Tabernacle to continue flowing within your place of work, as well.
“For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
A few positions will be offered working in the hydroponic gardens on Campus. These organic gardens will exclusively grow untampered seeds, as no genetically altered seeds will be used in these gardens. This method of growing food saves energy, grows produce faster and delivers larger harvests.
Hydroponically grown plants also have fewer problems with bug infestations, funguses and diseases and are generally healthier and happier.
“Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs” (Genesis 9:3)
Hydroponic gardening also offers several benefits to our environment and to our health. Most health-conscious people are looking for real food, not modified hybrids that smell like nothing and taste bad.
Another projected Campus work project is learning and working as a beekeeper. A beekeeper is a person who keeps honey bees. Honey bees produce commodities such as honey, beeswax, pollen, propolis (bee glue), and royal jelly. Some beekeepers also raise queens and other bees to sell to other farmers and to satisfy scientific curiosity. Beekeepers also use honeybees to provide pollination services to fruit and vegetable growers, like in the Campus hydroponic gardens.
“If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey” (Numbers 14:8).
There will be many other work places on Campus to consider. Casting large sculptures for outdoor and indoor Christian displays, such as angels, articles found in the Holy of Holies and many other images our Father ordered the artisans to create for the Tabernacle. The artisan men and women made many beautiful works of art expressing the wealth and goodness of our Lord and Savior.
“All who are gifted artisans among you shall come and make all that the Lord has commanded” (Exodus 35:10)
Campus Christian Café for the baker and bistro maker, serving breakfast and lunch. Playing Christian music and more.
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head” (Romans 12:20).

Farmer or Rancher, either or both will be available depending upon your desires to learn or use the knowledge you already have acquired. The lifestyle is not for everyone; however, it’s very therapeutic and a great environment for raising your children. There are a number of areas of farming and ranching that can lend to a better life and healthier livestock.
Avoiding hormone growth injects and antibiotics at all cost. Caged animals create an unhealthy environment for the animal and produces unhealthy food for human consumption. Therefore, we will only raise free-range livestock with the best of care and the best of feed available for all.
“A righteous man regards the life of his animal, But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel” (Proverbs 12:10).
Cattle Ranching can be hard; however, it lends a lot of time to spend with God.
“Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, Inc., is an organization established in 1877 by forty Texas cattlemen for the purpose of combating unbridled livestock theft. The association headquarters is located in Fort Worth.”
Horse Ranching is big here in Texas with more horses within a 100-mile radius of Gainesville, Texas than anywhere else in the world.
“Driving down a Texas highway north of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, you see one horse ranch after another. Visitors think, “I wonder why all these horse ranches are here?” The equine enthusiast thinks, “Man I wish I could live here!” The equine industry has exploded in the North Texas corridor traveling north on Highway 377 leading out of the DFW Metroplex from Aubrey to Whitesboro. It is a constant draw for all aspects of the equine industry. There are days the trucks and trailers outnumber the cars, from the normal bustle of horsemen and horsewomen hauling their horses to a trainer, a vet, another farm, to a lesson, delivering a sale horse, buying a horse, riding with a friend, going trail riding, moving mares to another farm, competitions and even the traditional life of just going to check and gather cattle.”
