What makes Shepherd’s Refuge distinct?

We do not charge guests for their stay at Shepherd’s Refuge removing barriers for pastors and their spouse to receive the rest they need. We rely completely on the Lord to provide for the ministry through friends like you!

We do not only serve pastors. We serve bi-vocational pastors, missionaries, and those from smaller less funded congregations and ministries. Any frontline servant can benefit from this time of refreshment.

We are non-denominational which protects important confidentiality while inviting pastors from a variety of denominations.

Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.”– Isaiah 52:4
