Recovery is Possible
Some wonder how God’s ordained and consecrated could be in need of such services. The individuals who serve God and the Church are people first, and they are vulnerable to illness and disease in the same way any other person is. (Addiction is a disease of the brain.) This truth has been the impetus of the mission and ministry of Guest House since 1956.
We welcome these individuals warmly and are committed to walking with them on their recovery journey.

For Jesus, His primary claim to greatness is service to others. He is the willing servant of anyone who needs Him.
How does this idea fit in an age that is impressed with credentials, degrees, titles and positions in the company?
You and I are followers of Jesus Christ so let’s do our best to make the Gospel become a reality in our lives.
Let us pray for ourselves and for one another, that our lives will be as transformed as the bread and wine into the Body of Christ. For our Church, today, needs less reformation and more transformation.
