Capital Campaign

all the latest updates for the retreat center in Harrisburg, PA

The Plan:

Our primary objective is to renovate and develop the existing 50-acres to host training seminars, workshops, and events. Our next objective is to expand our facilities to provide overnight accommodations, dining options, and recreational amenities for our guests. Immediate efforts have been made to restore the existing structures and landscaping.

Give to this Campaign

Help us create a peaceful retreat for ministers, missionaries, and other servant leaders to rest, refresh, and refuel. Hundreds of people will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and refresh in a relaxing environment suited for personal and professional growth.
