The primary focus
of Buffalo Ridge Hospitality & Retreat Center is to provide a place to minister to pastors,
missionaries, youth leaders, and others in Christian service – a place
where we can accommodate people in a quiet, scenic country setting
for times of personal restoration. We maintain an open door and provide
hospitality for those the Lord sends our way.
Some pastors need assistance and encouragement because they have been wronged
through church politics. Others need help because they have done wrong and
need to be out of the pulpit, but still need to be discipled and helped to
mature in Christ instead of discarded. Others need a network of caring Christian
friends outside of the church they serve, who encourage them to persevere.
Others just need an affordable place to get away for a period of time from
their responsibilities and stresses.
Many pastors of small urban churches do not have the opportunity or means to
take breaks from urban stresses. Buffalo Ridge provides a quiet restful place
for church workers from a wide variety of para-church organizations, denominations
and ministries. The change of pace and responsibilities can help individuals
gain a fresh perspective on their calling and experience personal spiritual
involves much more than sharing a meal and providing a bed. It involves being
a channel of God's blessing to one another as brothers and sisters in Jesus
Christ, encouraging one another, meeting one another's needs, and sharing
one another's concerns, hurts, and victories.
We believe that the spiritual health of those in ministry is extremely important
to those they serve. We need each other in the Body of Christ, and need to
cultivate honest, open, serving relationships. We are interested in building
bridges between Christians of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We
are active in providing hospitality to people from various Christian groups
and denominations. Part of what makes this place interesting is the interaction
between people from a wide variety of places who meet each other during their
stay here.Our facilities are
also made available to non-profit organizations, churches, and other
groups of many different Christian denominations, for individual and
small group retreats. Buffalo Ridge is a place where families, groups
and individuals can come for times of Christian fellowship, worship,
study, prayer, rest and a place to seek counsel and personal ministry. Please
come and visit Buffalo Ridge when you're in the
area, we'd love to have you!
