"Come Away with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest" ~Mark 6:31
Our vision is to link Christians in many nations who feel called by God to open their hearts and homes in the spirit of Romans 12:13 "Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality" with God's weary workers who are in need of doing what Jesus commands in Mark 6:31 "Come away with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest". We call this the HospitalityHomes.org network.
HospitalityHomes.Org is a rest and renewal ministry serving Christians of every denomination and occupation. As Christians everywhere are faced with the mounting pressures of spiritual warfare, we need to rest from those pressures and to renew body, mind, and spirit. We also need to learn to live a lifestyle of resting in the Lord.
Our roots are in Hawaii, founded in 1982 by Christian lay workers. Our calling is to help renew full-time pastors, clergy, missionaries, chaplains, ministry directors, and other full-time Christian workers who are worn out from the stresses and demands that a hurting world places on them. Christians are not immune to the stressful wear and tear that commonly confronts those in the "helping" profession today. We are deeply committed to evangelism and discipleship by helping rejuvenate weary Christians so they can be more effective witnesses in sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with a needy world. We are also deeply committed to helping restore the Ministry of Hospitality in the church since we believe hospitality is crucial to the health and unity of Christ's Body.
