Respite Retreats

Nimrod Outdoors has provided respite care for pastors and missionaries since 2016. The purpose of respite care for pastors and missionaries, and their spouses, is to provide spiritual rest and rejuvination for those who minister to others.  

 

Pastors and missionaries have committed their lives to the world of ministry. The constant compassionate care they offer to others can quickly compound their stress, which often goes unrecognized. Those in the world of ministry become closely involved in the lives of those they shepherd. They are called on routinely to celebrate joyful occasions like births, weddings, and baptisms, but must also address and tend to life’s sufferings, often consoling those experiencing heartbreak, confusion, rage, or despair. Over time, pastors and missionaries often face the reality of compassion fatigue.

 

If you are a pastor or missionary or the spouse of a pastor of missoinary craving respite care, please reach out to us! Or if you would like to sponsor a pastor or missionary you deeply care for, please let us know. We are fully dedicated to facilitate the rest and relaxation in the best possible environment to revive and renew their (or your) spiritual calling.

I am a Pastor/Missionary

If you are wanting to take respite care for you and/or your spouse please fill out the form below.

We do not charge pastors and missionaries for respite stays. We utilize donations to provide this service. Respite care uses a space called The Sanctuary, a studio-style room with a bed, kitchenette, bartop, and bathroom as well as a private entry and porch space with swings overlooking the farmlands. Our guests have access to the property including the firepit, chickens, walking the property, and playing disc golf on the property. We work to provide you with the best experience and are happy to set up hunting or fishing trips, boating on the lake, canoeing trips, hiking, tee times at the local golf course, and more.
