Looking to start group.
We are new to prepping and are seeking a Christian community to join. We have an RV and heirloom seeds and a few other things we have been gathering. Any real believers out there willing to consider some hard working, Jesus loving newbies?

Hi, Tomgirl and I are currently in southwest Colorado. We are researching some lands to buy that are mountainous and hopefully with river frontage. Bordering BLM or national forest would be ideal. We’re in our twenties. I have an inheritance with which to buy land and set up an off-grid location. Have not decided on exactly where we want to settle as yet, but considering New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and maybe even California . Feel free to write us at [email protected]
We would like some input on locations most favorable.

My name is Ruth I am 60 and have 2 adult boys we have been preppers for better than 20 years.We are Christians and know the hour is very late .in the realm of birth pains and the world we are seeing and living in i would say we are crowning.We are honest ,loyal and loving people we are also hardy .strong and no pushovers.We take care of our own and others.My boys have a great number of advanced skills and would be an asset to any group.We forge and pay our own way no freeloaders here.WE are not rich but we are not poor.
We have what we need to last for a long haul.We would like to find a group to add safety in numbers to our preps and to yours as well.If you have good land for your bug out local and you want to pick your new neighbors who are willing to pitch in and even buy an acre or two to help with cost and your investment let us know.
contact us at [email protected]
please note for anyone seeing money signs we can not and will not be taken advantage of “promise”.
We have a great deal of practice at being part of the group, we have lived with 4 preper groups 2 groups for just over a year each, one group for two years and a long term for 6 years.
We left on good terms with each and that is no small undertaking.Their is no perfect family and no perfect group.We have been witness to some of the most interesting group dynamics.Family,marriage,groups each is a commitment day by day a decision that this is what i will work at and this is were i wish to be. We have never been kicked out or asked to leave any group. We have worked very hard with others to build their infrastructure log cabins,crops,wells,solar power even under ground storm shelters ”bunkers”
What we want
A serious and real group of for the most part like minded people who wish to learn from one and other teach one and other, train together of course with in reason for what could be very interesting and trying times ahead or what do we prep for? We wish to join an established group who want to add to their security, their workforce and their skill sets .We would prefer the Pacific Northwest area as this is our stomping grounds,But for the right group of people and right place we could be open.
Some of what i watch for and study and prep for. our Economy /debt/the fed/I.M.F those are all good right?, Natural disaster/national natural disaster,False flags,cyber attack/true or false flag,/E.M.P,/WAR/world war Nope no chance of that right?N.a.t.o,/U.N WOW this list could pretty big so that will do. And these are among the most reasonable,rational and logical in the prep world.
What we bring to the table,
2 very able body males over 10 years off grid living experience.Husbandry Goats,chickens,rabbits,horses.growing food /vegetables in many different states /environments.Rustic log cabin building,some carpentry skills, off grid tools.First aid and C.P.R as well as advanced field medic training .Disclaimer lived with army medic 5 years navy medic 1 year trained with both i am not a doctor.
Supplies/security/and other skills 4×4 pickup/work truck ,over a years food stock for a group of 4,A good stock of survival gear, top class A/R’s scoped green laser with flashlight and strobe with sidearms and a modest arsenal hunting weapons/ammo.bush craft and survival skills at instructor levels
If you are looking for people you can count on we are your guys we even come with references from other group members we have lived with long term to learn more contact us here or at our e mail [email protected]
New member of the prepping community looking to join with other survival-oriented people in the southwest area. Currently in NM, able to travel. Own my own weapons and a small gear stockpile. Unable to stockpile any great quantity of food and water due to living space restrictions and lack of funding. Humans are social animals who, despite being *able* to survive alone, function best in groups. I’m just looking for somewhere I can help out.
Skills: decent marksman, moderate first aid experience, several years’ backpacking experience. Former boy scout and ROTC cadet. Employed as a chemistry assistant in an electroplating shop for 4 years. Some minor communications and electrical experience. Helped build 2 houses in the Las Cruces area, know my way around manual labor construction a fair bit.
If anyone in the southwest area has an existing group that could use an extra set of working hands, with a halfway decent brain attached, please let me know.
Hello Ladies and Gents
I would like to thank so many people from this site for all the contacts and conversations we ,My son and I received we have been offline and off grid for a while. With time and a little patience this site has gained us a friend who we teamed up with and a group that we three are now members of and we all live together in our own places. We my son and I have been in groups for long term stays as we have said before in our other post [ Get us if you can ]… We do not know what happened but we were not able to get into our post or back on the site with our old profile. But we are back and we ask each of our friends who have contacted us to get back in touch you know who you are lol…As I was saying it is hard to wade through so many people and groups and find the real deals as most of us very well know, however after many months of looking for the right people and so many contacts even friends,, we made a choice and we could not be more happy with the real and down to earth people we have found.. For op sec reasons I will not be giving a list of we got this and we got that …
Now if you are looking for a group to bond with to become friends and maybe extended family we may be what you are looking for .. If you are real, , honest,, true to yourself and others you may fit.. we are not a religious group we have many people with many different points of view and we respect each other and each others points of view… We are open to all good people contact us by e mail if we like what we see and hear we will move to phone person to person talks and get to know each other.. we love ex mil alpha dogs and those who have a prepping and security mindset.. If you have skillsets you bring to the table and you wish for safety in likeminded numbers we may be your kind of crazy lol
Our family (of 4 possibly 5) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with. We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring. We wish to relocate to Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, N. Nebraska, but preferably somewhere out West since it is less populated (Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, North or South Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah). We are choosing not to remain in Tennessee. We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.
Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry. I can bring the basic household duties but I have also worked many jobs and can probably do it all except weld or drive a semi (but I haven’t tried those yet either), I have cleaned stalls, worked in food service, Amazon fulfillment, MANY factory jobs, office jobs at a college and a tax office, customer service positions, and traveled with a carnival a friend owns. My daughter just graduated in May 2016 and has her first real job at Amazon, but she has always helped my uncle at their place with the garden, grass cutting, and just following him around helping. My son is starting high school this year.
In all honesty, I’M SCARED AS HELL OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!!!!!! While I have no doubt that my husband will do whatever it takes to protect us, I know that we need more training and help to make it. We are not financially blessed by any means, he works a decent job, and I am unemployed, making the other income to the household an SSI check and child support. I am scared for my children and the future that is in front of them, especially my son. I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me. We currently live just outside of Chattanooga, but it is just over the mountain in our backyard, and those folks are going to be heading somewhere to try to survive….
We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. We have no roots here, and have been looking to leave for a while, but have stayed just because it’s where my kids have always gone to school. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do. I know the Lord says to trust in Him in all things, but it is hard for me sometimes and that scares me too. You can reach us at live4future17[at]gmail[dot]com we look forward to hearing from you soon.
Desert Rat Preppers. This site was created with the intention of bringing as many like-minded people together as possible in the Texas and New Mexico area. A place for individuals and families to establish their own preparedness plan and seek members of like mind.
Share your ideas, join or create a group, Chat, Blog’s, and downloads.
We are a couple (both 35) with a nearly three year old son. We have been preparing and training in Northern California for years, but are no longer confident that this is a safe area to live through the increasing earth changes and what may come.
As such, we are looking to strategically relocate and join a high-trust, thoroughly self-sufficient community that includes other families.
We respect operational security, but do require a sufficiently open dialog that we can develop the requisite trust to move forward. While this is necessarily a process, it’s also an urgent one.
Some of our interests and areas of expertise include:
Cooking, fermentation, pickling
Licensed amateur radio operator
Electronics & repair; Software/Internet
Music: Piano, Guitar, Harp; Theory, Education
Parenting / teaching
Philosophy & Counseling
Health & Fitness
Nutrition & anti-cancer diet
Both experienced entrepreneurs, which means applying infinite creativity in solving endless problems and working with others to build something real.
There is clearly much more. I am confident we can make a meaningful contribution to any community, particularly given that we share a goal of securing a future for our families. Eager to discuss how we can work together.
If you are such a group, or know of any groups looking for families, please reach out: christian ѳ props ˑ org
All the best, and God bless.
New here and recently back in SW NM. Got a lot on my agenda.
First of all, I’m hoping to network with fellow patriots/Constitutionalists, especially Christians and preppers. I’m a veteran of the Airborne Infantry and I’ve studied military history so I have some skills to draw on should the Cold Civil War turn hot out here. Unfortunately, I’m only now starting to get some food reserves built up. I mention all that just to let you know where I stand. I’m not looking to lean on anybody or be a parasite. I don’t take without contributing or giving back. When the SHTF I’d like to know where friendlies are in my area. You know the deal–safety in numbers; mutual defense, somebody you can trust on your flank.
Secondly, before the SHTF, I would like to join or start a home church/home Bible study somewhere near the Artesia area, possibly as far south as Carlsbad or north as Roswell. I believe the true Church (not the apostate church) will soon need to move underground, as it had to in most countries around the world for most of AD history. The time to make the transition is now, while some of our freedom is still intact.
Thirdly (and I mention this just in case, because it is necessary in my current situation) I am looking to buy a home somewhere around here. Not in a town or crammed too close to neighbors. Preferably with at least a few acres. Shop, pole barn or big garage is almost a necessity, too. Well water. Existing fence would be nice. Don’t know how much time America has, but I would like a place to raise my son and where the dogs can run before our borrowed time runs out.
If I sound like a radical wingnut doomsdayer, well, guilty as charged.
The company I work for recently purchased 120+ acres of land bordering state trust land in Arizona. We are in the process of purchasing another 200+ adjoining acres. We are going to be letting people use 1/4 acre parcels, 1/2 acre parcels with a few 1 acre parcels in our prepper compound. User will be responsible for obtaining and providing to us a background check, providing a resume for adults and a phone interview with a probable follow up in person interview. There is already a community well drilled to meet water needs. A 300 gallon water tank can be filled in 10 minutes flow and supply is great.
Our goal when SHTF is to establish a self sustaining prepper community with a mix of people from all backgrounds and experiences. We want nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors, teachers, military, farmers, contractors, preachers and more. By the time we are done we anticipate having 60-75 families using 400+ private acres as a bugout location when the need arises. Currently we have 1 nurse, 1 nurse practitioner, two former military, a general contractor, a farmer and a former state trooper (and their families) as well as emplyees from the company with various skills and their families.
Each person on their parcel will be able to pull up an RV/5th wheel, camp, or build a cabin etc . You can fence it your parcel as well. There is a community well already set up, power will be by wind, solar or generator on your lot. You will be able to start a garden on your lot, raise rabbits or chickens etc to help provide for your family. Come and camp or live there full time it is yours to do as you wish but when SHTF you will have a great bugout location if you choose not to live there beforehand.
We will be reserving a large portion of the land for community gardens, rabbit pens and chicken coops, and other food sources to assist with food for community members. We also have plans to build a chapel, a covered community activities area, and more. Parcels will circle this area for easy access for all parcels.
All resources are on site from water, to heavily wooded areas to pasture and meadows. In a SHTF scenario not only will we be able to provide for the compound but will have enough rabbits and chickens as well as vegtables and fruits to hopefully barter/sell for things we can not produce ourselves.
Let me be clear here on this. We are not looking to overthrow the government, take over the world or anything else. We would encourage each resident to have a firearm for hunting and self defense purposes if needed but this is not a requirement. The goal is a safehaven for members to provide for themselves and family when SHTF, or a nice quiet place to live, or vacation to camp etc until SHTF. Once SHTF this will become a survival situation and we are trying to help make that as easy as possible for you but please do not show up with no knives, tents, sleeping bags etc. You need to prepare for this ahead of time and have that sort of stuff easily accessable in a bugout situation. If this is not possible let us know and we may be able to purchase it and store it on site for you.
There is a $50 non refundable application fee to be considered for a parcel. You will be required to provide a copy of a background check for each adult person that will be on the property. No pedophiles, violent offenders etc. I will have my wife and kids there and this will be a safe place for them when SHTF so that type stuff will not be let in. There will be a $50 monthly fee for 1/4 acre lots and a $75 monthly fee for 1/2 acre lots and $100 monthly fee for 1 acre lots. This money will be used among other things to add in community rabbit pens, rabbits, chicken coops,chickens, cattle, dig ponds to be stocked with fish, gardens and more plus community center area, community kitchens for those that dont build, extra water storage tanks and more.
If or when you are selected there will be a $500 fee to pick your parcel for any size. Selection will come in order of the fee being paid. There are some premium parcels that we assume will go first that back up to Arizona State Trust land and the one acre parcels. With no difference in the reservation fee we assume they will go first. Two weeks after acceptance you will be removed from the approval list if the selection fee has not been paid or other arrangements have not been made.(we can work with you but need to know) We can barter for the $500 fee on a few lots for some things. Contact us with those requests and offers.
Do the math we are not doing this to get rich. Our cost of the land once the last acquisitions are made will be probably in the $400k-500k range. Even if every lot was 1 acre $100 monthly lots it would take us 10 years to get our money back out and that does not include all the upgrades we will be doing, animals, garden expenses etc. We are doing this to give our employee families the best situation to be in when SHTF and we feel that is with a good group of people from all walks of life.
No freeloaders. Once SHTF (and it eventually will) you will be required to maintain your own parcel, garden, rabbits etc as well as work on the community gardens etc each day to ensure as a collective we can supplement when we need to for all members.
We are going to be looking for a year round resident for the compound for security, and upkeep, take care of community rabbits and garden in exchange for a fee free 1 acre parcel and possibly once the lots are leased out a salary. Parcel owners will be able to work out an agreement with that person for various things like raising your own set of rabbits on your parcel, spreading your rabbit poop on a portion of your land where you want your garden to fertalize it, possibly a garden and more. We can provide the Rabbit hutches and assembly on your parcel for $175 each otherwise you will be responsible for assembly and delivery. One buck and two does price is $75. These will be well bred New Zeleand White meat rabbits. They will be younger so they can be used for a while for breeding before . I am sure you can work with him/her once we get them hired to actually process and sell your rabbits if wanted for some income to cover your monthly fees.
There will be sensible contracts to be signed for both our protection and yours. Pretty much dont be a disruptive drunk, drug user or get arrested for a sex crime, or violent crime and not freeloading and you can stay as long as you want as long as your monthly fees are paid. Do any of those things and unfortunately we will need to part ways. If thats you please dont waste either of our times.
If you are interested please leave your contact info below and I will email you all the details or email me directly at (smallminers at yahoo dot com)
