Pastor Respite

With the stress and demands of ministry resulting in thousands of pastors leaving the ministry each year, Bridge of Hope Pastor Respite Ministry has prepared a place of stress-free rest and renewal for pastors and their wives nestled in the eastern Ozark Mountains of Missouri.

There are no programs, schedules, counseling, or agendas. We trust that you know best how to spend your time whether alone or with your spouse. Sleeping, hiking, watching nature, studying, talking to God, life planning, or just sitting all sound like good ideas to us!

 

The accommodations include a private bedroom with full bathroom. Relaxing areas on the porch overlooking splendid nature and a creek. The property borders hundreds of acres of national forest for walking and sightseeing. Within the surrounding area are several state conservation nature areas, hiking trails, and beautiful scenery to let your mind be set free of distractions. There are small quaint towns to explore and unique dining experiences.

 

Our Coordinators, Mike and Sherry Yaeger, whose home you are invited to, are here to help make your stay special.

Mike and Sherry Yaeger live in a peaceful secluded valley in the foothills of the beautiful Ozarks of Missouri. They enjoy their spring fed crystal clear creek on the property which is boarded by the Mark Twain National forest. Deer and wildlife are abundant in this very quiet setting miles from the highway. God has blessed them and they would like to share their retreat with pastors that need a place to get away from all the distractions of this world. God has blessed them with the gift of hospitality and great country cooking! They are excited to serve pastors in this ministry.
