Share the Blessing
Our goal is to partner with others who want to make a difference.
In 2020, the Heartland community celebrated twenty-five years of seeing people find hope through Jesus. The vision started with businessman and founder Charles Sharpe. As he drove across his Missouri farmland one day, he thought, “This would be a good place for kids.”
He was right. Charlie was thinking of a summer camp, but the vision grew into a full community with recovery programs, schools, and businesses all built around a local church. We call ourselves an intentional community because our intention is to introduce men, women, and children to the only hope that lasts – a life devoted to God, through Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Hope often becomes contagious, and we pray that you will catch it. You are welcome to become a part of sharing the hope with others through your prayers, your friendship, or by recommending our recovery programs to someone who is looking for help.
Come visit us to experience Heartland today, or subscribe to our e-newsletter to have updates delivered to your email inbox.
A staggering number of people we’ve spoken to in churches indicate they or someone they know have been impacted by addiction, which surprises many church leaders. We have program graduates who would love to come and share their story with your congregation. There’s something powerful that happens when people hear what God has done in someone whose life struggle was similar to their own.
Partnering with churches, law enforcement, and individuals creates a network for long-term solutions.
“I have had the opportunity to preach many times at the recovery center. I can tell you they are doing a tremendous ministry for those going through addictions. This would be a great time for them to come share…”
“I’ve seen the devastation first-hand that drugs are causing…For the past 13 years we’ve referred people to the Heartland Recovery Programs to get help, and they have had great success.”

“No one church or ministry can reach the world by themselves; over the years we have been able to do some of this work together, and have done it better by doing it in fellowship.”
