Although we love children, we ask that you find someone trustworthy to take care of them so that your time at Shepherd’s Refuge is most beneficial to spiritual and physical renewal. If you or your spouse are a nursing mother and baby, please contact us.
The few exceptions we made early in the life of the ministry, allowing children to accompany the parents, have resulted in being more of a distraction than help for the grownups to really benefit from a time in solitude and spiritual meditation.
Ministries like Fairhaven, and EdenRidge are called to meet the combined needs of a family vacation and spiritual retreat. Then there is Shepherd's Fortress Ministries that connects Pastors and their families with Retreat Facilities. We hope that you will be able to take advantage of what they offer.
