Retreats and Vacation Discounts for Pastors’ Families

Below are listed retreat and getaway locations that provide either free or discounted rates for pastors and their families:

Quiet Waters Ministries has a partnership with Wyndham hotels and resorts around the world. Pastoral families can enjoy a full week of accommodations for a flat price of $299, obtained through the purchase of the voucher. The voucher is a one time use voucher, and once purchased, you have an entire year to book your stay. The purchase and booking is done at this website:

*FYI: Our family has successfully purchased and used one of these vouchers, and enjoyed the use of it in FL. Some of the bookings require an up charge, but we found one that did not. We enjoyed a beautiful resort that slept 6, had a full kitchen, and a lovely property with a large pool with varied depths.

*Christianity Today has compiled a FABULOUS, comprehensive {state by state} listing of getaway options. Click here for the full list.

Gary and Barbara Neumeyer live in western Panama, and they have built a two bedroom casita to offer to pastors and their families for a place to vacation. They offer it for 7 day visits absolutely free. Click here to learn more:

*Elijah’s Harbour is a beautiful getaway in the mountains of Tennessee that offers a discount to pastoral families and pastoral retreats. Ann Lokey runs this amazing place and is a very gracious host.

*Lifeway Christian Resources offers a getaway located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, just east of Asheville, North Carolina.  Their expansive Ridgecrest Conference Center has created a place for those in full-time Christian ministry to come and enjoy an incredible room rate of $49.00* per night for up to four persons per room {some restrictions may apply.}

BethNuah Ministries is a ministry specifically for pastors’ wives. Throughout the year, Laura Mullenix offers small, intentionally personal retreats to pastors’ wives free of charge. Located in Plano, TX.
