The Steadfast Trailblazers is a program designed to help ministries serve other ministries while investing in Biblical leaders.

Each event will be a little different based on the ministry that we are serving.

This March we will be visiting our very own Miss Hope on the LeanStead farm in Oneonta, AL. Hope and Michael have a heart for investing in people and when they began talking about the desire to reclaim an overgrown trail and campsite on the property we knew it would be a perfect fit for the Trailblazers.

The Steadfast Trailblazers

About LeanStead


Leanstead’s mission is one of rediscovery. We live complicated lives in a complicated world keeping us distracted from hearing God’s voice. Our overall goal is learning and sharing how to lean up our lives so that we can focus on what is most important; God’s Word, His calling and our obedience. Hebrews 12: 1 says it best, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” This process happens by first questioning everything; our worship, our work, our lifestyle, our health, our education, our relationships, our spending…you know, everything. It may seem daunting, but here’s the thing; it’s not a destination. It’s a journey and the first step is getting quiet and hearing God’s voice. 

So, how does this mission connect with The Steadfast Trail Blazers? Well, part of leaning up life is finding ways to get away from the noise of our complicated lives. Sometimes we just need to get into the woods and fellowship with God and other believers. Having an opportunity to dig into the Word, have time alone with God  and also experience how the act of service helps us to focus on being a part of the body of Christ. It can be good to enjoy literally being His hands and His feet (with trimmers, rakes and blowers;-). Come join us!
