Shepherd’s Refuge is for the heavy-laden ministry leader seeking rest. Whether it is leading a ministry or pastoring a church, these jobs are demanding and taxing. These jobs are also incredibly important, especially during these challenging and turbulent times.

We provide solace for these frontline servants to rest, and return restored to their purpose.

Our cabins are nestled in the beautiful North Georgia mountains surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest, providing a space of solitude for Christian leaders to find refuge from the rigors of ministry.

Like a depiction in a storybook, one guest said it best:

“It is a ‘Secret Place' where, in the quiet, one can find refreshment in body, mind, and spirit”.

Our Mission

To foster an environment of solace, refreshment, and
restoration for the Lord’s frontline servants.
