Who We Serve
Life in a cross-cultural context can be hard. Demands of language, culture, schooling choices, ministry requirements – all of these things can weigh on you. Sometimes life in a cross-cultural context can bring you to the point of explosion – or implosion. You recognize that you need help, but where can you turn?
We hope that your mission agency has a team to care for you, but if that is not adequate or appropriate, do you have other options?
At Sanctuary Inn we endeavor to give you space, place and time to move towards a place of healing. Stepping aside from the daily demands on your life, stepping out of your routine – having a place to be where you can breathe deeply and slow down may be just what you need.
Sanctuary Inn is open to those who live and work cross-culturally. If you are living and working outside of your home culture, you are welcome.
Why do missionaries come off the field?
of career missionaries leave the field for preventable reasons (i.e. not well trained, children and educational issues, team dynamics, lack of on-field care, crisis)
leave the field in the first 5 years for reasons like financial stress, language difficultiy, or marriage issues (all of which can be addressed)
About the Property
Sanctuary Inn sits on 8.5 acres at the base of Mt. Hood. The property includes two large houses, a retreat lodge, basketball court, disc golf course, and access to the Salmon River.
Currently, we are developing plans for an extensive renovation of the larger house (the Inn) in order to host multiple missionary families. Our goal is for Sanctuary Inn to house up 30 missionaries at a time.
