Add Your Comment on Christian Transition Village
My name is Tony Tangalos and a few friends of mine are in the planning stages of designing & building one or more small to medium sized “Christian Transition Villages” in Arizona and other Southwestern U. S. locations. The express purpose of these “Christian Transition Villages” is for people who believe that we may be close to experiencing some dramatic man made or naturally occurring changes in our world, "Black Swan Events"; can move to and begin living the agrarian, self-reliant lifestyle, totally "off the grid", with solar power, well water, on site crops & livestock.
We have a core group of a few like-minded individuals and are seeking additional people who share our concerns for the need to transition from the urban lifestyle to a more rural, agrarian lifestyle where we provide for most all of our needs from within our sustainable village. We are pro self-defense, including maintaining the means for secure self-defense, but are not in any way militant or radical, just normal people concerned about preparing intelligently for the future. We believe that when the shoe drops, those who have not planned will seek to take from those who have prepared and we plan to protect our village members and children from opportunists and thieves. The remote locations of these villages are specifically engineered to minimize the potential for adversarial conflict.
We have a site in Northern Arizona that we are engaged in the planning process and are positioning for rapid deployment when the realization of the need becomes far more urgent. We seek others who are tuned in to the looming challenges and whom want to live in a secure and well planned village where we can take care of our loved ones without relying on external resources that could be disrupted for a sustained period of time.
At least one member of your family must be able bodied and willing to contribute considerable work on a daily basis to work the land and produce a harvest. Able bodied applicants with the ability to demonstrate experience in needed skill sets such as farming, ranching, blacksmithing, security, medical training, physical fitness training and leadership will receive preference.
Please contact me if you are serious about preparing for your future safety and would like to become a working part of a well planned Christian Village of people who are determined to live off the grid.

Fellowship for Intentional Community
Statement of Housing Non-discrimination:
Our community is a legally sanctioned church or religious organization and living in our community is restricted to members of that religion as allowed by law. Our religion does not discriminate based on race, color, or national origin. Housing in our community is non-commercial (i.e. not intended to make a profit).
Members(adults and children):
(None yet, we expect between 50-200 when formed.)

Leadership Core Group:
(Yes, it is growing stronger and more vibrant each month.)
Labor and Money
Partial income sharing
Open to Members with Pre-existing Debt:
(Debt will not be a part of living IN the village, members can maintain debt outside the village.)
(We anticipate consistent effort from each adult, able bodied member on an as needed basis, which we expect to be a minimum of 80 hours a month. Don't fear working, it will pass the time, and cure boredom.)
(There is an expectation of contributing to the community to become a member of the community. The exact contribution will vary with each member and could be made in time, talents or resources. Money itself is not essential to joining, a willingness to thrive and act responsibly, honestly and in a spirit of cooperation is expected.)
(Not money, but time, talents and resources.)
Land and Buildings
