Hope. Connect. Strengthen.
He said, “O man of high esteem, do not be afraid. Peace be with you; take courage and be courageous!” Now as soon as he spoke to me, I received strength and said, “May my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”
You work hard, pastors and missionaries (and families)! Your sacrifices are many, and your time is extremely valuable. It is our desire to give back to those of you who give so much of yourselves.
Full-time pastors or missionaries can retreat with us at no cost for your lodging ($100/night value). Each cabin is equipped with a kitchenette that includes a full-size refrigerator, so you can get away into the woods and enjoy His creation while you refocus your hearts on the Creator without added costs.**
If you would like more information on how we can partner with your church
to enrich your family discipleship program, please contact us here.
In 2023, full-time pastors and missionaries who come for a time of respite will have available to them, in addition to no-cost lodging, one afternoon lunch and up to five hours of childcare (or adult supervision for those with older children).

**CVR is open to full-time pastors and missionaries (and their immediate families!) at other times as well. Please fill out the form below and please include your available dates, and we can see if we can get you on the schedule. Please note that these “on your own” respite times do not have any lunch or childcare options. You can choose to fill out this Pastor Missionary Request Form 2019 (pdf) instead of the online form if you prefer.
