By Grace Alone Farm Ministries is a family ministry. Wayne and Hazel Massey have 11 children, 3 of which have been led by God to help in the ministry. Through their children’s experiences they have been given the desire to aid other children in healing through contact with farm animals.
This ministry was developed due to God laying on our hearts the need for a facility centering on children. God opened our hearts through similar situations in our lives, that many may face. We have children with both physical and emotional needs. We pray that this farm be a place of rest for families, a place of comfort. God is the center of our home and we hope all who come will be embraced by God’s love. We praise God and lift Him up in all that He is doing with this ministry.
Wayne and Hazel Massey- Founder and Co-Founder
Wayne and Hazel are long time believers of Christ, but it wasn't until recently they discovered a new meaning of their God given gifts. They have always had a calling for children, but it wasn't until they were blessed with special needs children of their own through adoption that they discovered a new kind of Love through Christ. With this new found love, came a vision for the ministry. It has truly opened their eyes to see the many struggles all children face on a daily basis, not just those with special needs. The farm provides the attention and support children need to cope with the many struggles. The farm offers a sense of relaxation through a fun and friendly enviroment. It is also a great devotion for adults to come together and gain confidence and support through each other, in hopes of more understanding and techniques to help their own as well as other children.

Jessica Reinhart- President
Jessica open heartedly accepted the position as President of the organization, and willingly provided her time and energy to helping start everything since day one. In that time, she has grown remarkably not only through Christ, but through the different traits and personalities each child offers. She has a special gift of realization and knows just what it takes to make beneficial decisions that can be helpful to both long and short term situations. Jessica stays at home with her two children full time, and spends majority of her free time reaching out to others that face the same daily struggles that she does. Everything happens for a reason, and there is no right or wrong way to share the good and bad experiences that have affected our lives. Jessica has great people skills, and is more than happy to talk, comfort, listen and share stories with anyone.
