AEP Outdoors honors the service of our special operations veterans by providing them with adrenaline outdoor adventure and fellowship. They operate with the awareness that it was the brotherhood while they served that kept them alive and it’s the brotherhood that will continue to do so. Their mission is not to raise awareness about mental health, they are providing the solutions.
Coordinating and organizing adrenaline igniting and soul healing outdoor adventures around the world for veterans, AEP Outdoors give 100% of their proceeds to their veteran programs and 501(c)(3) mission.
AEP was founded by 21-year veteran, U.S. Army Green Beret Travis Wilson, and his beautiful wife, Emily, who reside and operate businesses in Montgomery, Texas and are huge supporters of our local community. We could not be more excited to bring together fall in The Sam Houston National Forest, the homestead healing of Agape Farms, the fun family festivities of Farm Fest, the adrenaline adventure spirits of AEP and mix it with the moxie and heart of our hometown veterans...it's gonna be EPIC!!!
We prayed for a mission, trained in patience, worked in-waiting, grew in community and the battle showed up on our doorstep.
We're opening our door.
Agape Farms Ministries is a proud 501(c)(3) organization whose "soul purpose" is to help other individuals, families, ministries and communities figure out and fulfill their "soul purpose."
"Food security. Sustainability. Self-reliance. Food shortage. Recession. Inflation. Homelessness. Job insecurity. Unemployment. Failed leadership. Lazy employees. Sex trafficking crisis. Mental health crisis. Refugee, education system, political, church, healthcare, cost, farming, animal overpopulation, fertilizer prices, oil and gas, climate crisis." So many buzzwords and uncertainties, at times it feels like everything, and everyone is in some kind of crisis right now.
The most valuable lesson we've learned through farming is with our hearts, minds, families and communities under attack the only thing we have left to do is get to put our hands and feet to DOING GOOD WORKS!
Be-it the Agape Farms raised meat and produce itself, an introduction and warm welcome to farm life, farm animals and farm chores, employment, education, farm tours, a sanctuary, community, retreat or farm boot camp, our agricultural programs or ministry partnerships and assistance, Agape Farms Ministries is committed to showing up wherever it's needed.
Fundraising helps us bring these heart-warming, life-changing, soul quenching opportunities to victims of sex trafficking, veterans, children and adults with special needs, single mom's, the elderly, the orphan and adoption community and so so so many more. For us, witnessing the massive impact and life altering changes made through the simple sight and simplicity of God's plan has been just as rewarding, and sometimes more, than farm life itself. We are anxious to grow what we love into something other people can love, or a place to feel loved, too.
Our gratitude for God allowing us to be a part of this battle - there are no words.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and make changes that truly changes lives. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
