|Information About Canaan Land|
We are all about changing lives. Since 1981, Mac and Sandra, along with their dedicated staff, have been seeing God work the miracle of salvation and grace in thousands of lives all over North America and a number of foreign countries. Please allow us to give you a brief overview of the ministry here at Canaan Land.
Designed especially for men 17 & older who have had some kind of life controlling problems. Many having tried everything else without success and need what only a place like Canaan Land is able to provide. We bring the men to our facility just outside Montgomery, Alabama for one year of intensive Bible training, work skill development and daily discipline. This is all accomplished in an atmosphere of love. We call it, “Direction with Affection.”
Canaan Land Bible Training Center is free of charge to the students and their families. We are funded strictly by the donations of partners and friends.
Each year Mac rides with the Tribe of Judah Motorcycle Ministry ministering to thousands of outlaw bikers in such places as Sturgis, South Dakota; Daytona Beach, Florida; Gulfport, Mississippi; and others. Mac also ministers the Word at churches, leadership meetings, banquets, and schools, FGBMI and by television. Check our meetings page for a location near you.
There are a number of Mac's messages on CD & DVD. His book “Unchained”, and other items available for purchase online or by calling our office.
We have Founded a Canaan Land Bible Training Center in Mapleton, Australia. They are carrying the vision of reaching troubled young people with the Word of God in that part of the world.
So you can see, when one joins with Canaan Land Ministries as a Covenant Partner, they are literally touching thousands of lives with the message of our Lord Jesus Christ. We want to personally invite you to become a Covenant Partner. A Covenant Partner prays for the ministry here at Canaan Land and supports us financially as the Spirit of God directs. We understand partnership and believe for a one hundred-fold return for all our partners.
Mac and Sandra, along with the Staff and Students pray for our Partner Family everyday. If you have a request, please write or call so we can stand in agreement with you. Our motto for many years has been “Together, We Carry the Load.”
If you ever come to Alabama we’d be honored for you to stop by and visit Canaan Land. Please call and let us know you’re coming. We love you and look forward to meeting you personally.
