Barnabas House of Oklahoma
by Lisa Taylor
The most significant events in our lives – the birth of a child, the loss of a loved one, the joining of a couple in marriage, the commitment to serve the Lord – are attended by a pastor, chaplain, or priest. These men and women serve as comforters, guides, and confidants literally 24/7, 365 days a year. Though it is their joy and privilege to do so, that availability can leave them exhausted and discouraged if time is not set aside to refresh their spirits.
Our mission is to provide a safe haven for weary and wounded pastors and their spouses.
Barnabas House is not just a bed-and-breakfast or fun time get-away, but a place of healing. We are situated on a large acreage where the serenity of God’s beautiful creation can bring new life to a weary soul. The retreats can accommodate up to three pastors and their spouses at one time to refresh and refocus.
Currently, we operate three retreats per year. Up to three couples may come for our three day, two night program at a beautiful log cabin in the Flint Ridge Resort on the Illinois River, Kansas, OK. The use of this house has been graciously provided at a generous discount by its owners while Barnabas House raises the funds to build on our own. Pastors and their spouses can find restoration free of charge with access to a professional counselor at one of our quarterly retreats.
