Camp Glory Farm is a ministry of Siloam Missionary Homes.
The primary purpose of this location is to allow *TCKs/MKs a safe place in which they can adjust
from overseas living into the American culture through the interaction of our animals. Due to the
fast-changing pace in our country today, there can be various hardships that these families face
when they return to the USA. The animals are therapeutic for these families and help aid in the
adjustment process. Families have the opportunity to learn how to care for these animals, build or
maintain the community garden, or just enjoy God’s creation. After an introductory class, we offer
the opportunity to our families to have their own time together at the farm and interact with the
animals. This allows the family to spend time together at their own convenience.
*TCKs-Third Culture Kids
Camp Glory Farm @ Watson’s Place is a beautiful 10 acre farm dedicated to education, interaction,
and application. Our Motto, “Serve Local. Reach Global.” is about taking what has been learned
locally and using it to serve others globally. Our goal at Watson’s Place is to provide opportunities for
students and adults alike to come and learn about caring for Dorper Sheep, Nigerian Dwarf and
Pygmy Goats, and Alpacas. As this farm develops, we plan to increase areas of learning and training
to topics such as: “Using Aquaponics and Hydroponics for raising fruits and vegetables,
pasture management, lambing and kidding, and much more.”
Please call or email to schedule an educational field trip, tour, or with any questions you may have.
Rachel George is the daughter of Larry and Joyce George, founders of Siloam Missionary Homes. Since her early teens, Rachel has been actively involved in developing the ministry to the 43-acre campus that it is today. She has been on staff since 2012 and is Director of Camp Glory Farm. Rachel is a graduate of Appalachian Bible College, where she has a B.A. in Theology with a double minor in Youth Ministries and Family Counseling. She was ordained in 2017 and completed her Master’s Diploma in Biblical Counseling of Trauma and Crisis Care through Light University in 2018. During college, Rachel was Youth Pastor at Nehemiah Baptist Church. After graduation, she became a third grade teacher and varsity coach. In 2004, Rachel was a missionary teacher in Manaus, Brazil. She has served as Key Note Speaker at Youth Conferences and as Devotional Speaker during Siloam’s summer camps.
As Director of Camp Glory Farm, Rachel has a variety of responsibilities including: TCK (Third Culture Kids) care, Biblical counseling, educational field trips, internships, partnerships, and program development. Her main focus is reaching today’s youth. Because of some personal struggles that she faced as a child and young adult, she has a passion to drive people to dig deeper into their relationship with Christ, through her testimony of redemption through Jesus. As the Lord has grown this ministry of Siloam Missionary Homes, Rachel has continued in her Father’s legacy for being a visionary. For several years she prayed for God’s direction with Camp Glory Farm and over time, His plans began to unfold. In 2018 a new opportunity was opened up through the donation of another farm close to the main campus of Siloam. By having this new location, it would allow Camp Glory Farm to be able to be used on an even greater scale. The main campus will be used for current residents living at Siloam, while the other campus “At Watson’s” will be more community focused.
Kendric Peoples began as a summer intern in 2017. As the summer ended, she felt the Lord leading her to remain a while longer. After serving as in intern for 2 1/2 years, Kendric felt this was the place the Lord had for her to serve Him. Her dedication and hard work showed her passion to be a part of Camp Glory Farm and so she was brought on staff in January 2020. One of her passions is baking. She loves making cakes and other desserts and does it quite well.
Her experiences here at Siloam have allowed her the opportunity for personal as well as spiritual growth. One area in which she has grown is in her desire to help the families by making the farm more accessible. As various families arrive at Siloam, their children are given an opportunity to learn and grow by helping Kendric at the farm with the animals and chores. She overseas animal care, farm needs, leading and training interns, and teaching Mk’s how to work on the farm. Kendric is a vital part to keeping Camp Glory Farm run smoothly.
