In February of 2015, while praying and seeking the Lord at a little cabin in Pennsylvania, God called Chris and Becca Seymour to start a retreat for missionaries in Kalispell, MT. They didn't have all the details figured out, but they knew the first step of obedience was moving. So, like Abraham they went, knowing God would show them where to go and what to do (they had never even visited Kalispell before). At the end of June they loaded up a U-Haul and made the 2,200 mile move with their two boys from Rochester, NY to Kalispell.
In April of 2016, some new friends from church offered their property (Triple H Ranch) for hosting retreats. The first retreats were hosted in the fall of 2016.
To serve Christian missionaries by providing:
- A place of rest where they can be refreshed and renewed to continue in their ministry.
- Tools to help them tell their story, fundraise and share their mission.
We will blow the trumpets and smash the pots.
We will be obedient to what God says, even when it doesn’t make sense, so that He can receive all the glory.
We will walk by faith and not by sight.
Faith will be our eyes and we will trust God to do what He says.
We will pray dangerously, faithfully and expectantly.
We will honor God with the magnitude of our requests.
We will delight in God.
We will be people after God’s own heart, so that His desires become ours.
We will be feet washers.
As Jesus emptied Himself to serve, so will we. Nothing or no one is beneath us.
We will seek God’s plans and follow them.
It’s not about us or our vision. It’s His story and we want to be a part of what He’s writing.
We will bet the farm.
We won’t be afraid to take bold steps of faith to fulfill God’s call and purposes.
We can’t. God can.
We won’t trust in our own abilities or do things in our own strength. We will fully rely on Him.
We will raise our Ebenezer.
We will celebrate, remember and reflect on what God has done and where He has brought us.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.As adopted by the National Association of Evangelicals.
