Welcome to Pacific Iceberg

Posted June 30, 2014

Welcome to the Pacific Iceberg website. This site is dedicated to God's work and our mission as a family to focus on God's "Great Commission" and create a floating vessel and opportunity that can be sent to spread HIS word wherever He sees fit. As a single family or with dozens of families, we feel we can make a large impact whereever we go. We want to provide prayers, Bible's, food, clothing, fix and build homes, churches, repair roofs, and provide as much assistance as we can. We have been preparing this for years and there is no time like the present to move forward and do HIS work.

Disassemble and move the barge event!

The barge was disassembled partially in January and stored on land until we were ready to rebuild it. Well the good news is we are ready to rebuild it. But first we need to completely take apart the rest of the barge and clean up the supplies and take it back to the construction site so we can rebuilt it and get into the water. This is going to be a HUGE project. We need to separate 70 floats from the wood, and then take out all the nails and screws (many thousands of each) and then put it all on trailers and move it 7 miles down the road. This means we will need to clean up and move over 60,000+ pounds of materials and resources! The crazy part is we need to do this 2 times (once to get the trucks loaded and another time to get them unloaded) We are asking for help for Tuesday and Wednesday July 15,16. We will be starting at 8:00 am each day and go until around 6:00 pm. Some youth groups will be arriving around 10:00 each morning but the rest of us will start at 8:00 am. Please visit "Up Coming Events" link on the left for more details. This was an amazing day and we want to thank all the volunteers and churches that helped us. We could not have do en it without you.

Oregon Update...

 Posted February 25, 2016

It is now a new year and we have moved into a house on 2 Acres in Tillamook Oregon, with almost 400 feet of Trask River River front. Our goal is to rebuild the barge on land right next to the river and try and redo the project and move onto the barge and live as if we were on the water. That way we would have a lot more experience before we actually have to face the oceans and weather. We can practice living off grid (solar panels, wind mill, growing our own gardens, raising goats and chickens on the barge, water collection) and all the other things that would require to live on the barge. When the time comes we can take it apart and move it to water or use this as a working model to train others and rebuild a new one somewhere else on the water. Our mission of creating a mobile missions network for the Pacific Northeast has not changed.
