The saying goes, “Good things come to those who wait.”
The executive board of Shalom Hill Farm waited and prayed for 2½ years and their patience and prayers paid off. In November, the board welcomed Justin and Kathleen “Kat” Tigerman as its new program and executive directors, respectively.
The Tigermans come to Southwest Minnesota from Idaho where Justin pastored a church and Kat worked for a nonprofit organization, The House Next Door, a rent-free place for single mothers while they worked on their education degrees. It was quite by chance that they stumbled upon, online, Shalom Hill Farm’s need for directors.
“Justin worked at a camp called Camp Shalom and we were homesteading and had farm animals — and we’ve been having an ongoing conversation about outdoor ministry, but that didn’t sound like it ever would work,” Kat recalls. “I found this place and I was curious. The Spirit just started nagging us to inquire and find out, what is this place.”
