The founding pastor, Father Elford Wankie, in 1985 intended for the newly formed community to be like Saint Joachim and St. Ann, a family of God. This would serve as the basis of our human existence and enterprise in this Garden of Eden for the glory of God. We at the “Little Church in the Woods” have recaptured the founder’s vision and dream and have been intentionally trying to live it here. We gather here as members of the family every weekend or weekdays or anytime.​​
