The Green Mountain Oasis

The Green Mountain Oasis (Refúgio Monte Verde) provides a quiet, relaxing environment for our weary guests. Our ministry guests, which are primarily couples or singles (babies and small children are considered as an exception) will stay approximately 3 – 10 nights with minimal cost to them. All applications are case-by-case and according to availability.

Our ‘Flavor’ of Ministry

We are equipped in the areas of faith coaching, debriefing, encouragement, delicious meals and wonderful recreational options. We are not a vacation getaway – nor are we licensed counselors. We are called to come alongside ministry leaders who are at difficult crossroads in life, who are managing elevated stress with work and/or family – or who are simply exhausted and need some time away for re-clarification and rest. And please know that our guests will experience the privilege of anonymity. The Green Mountain Oasis provides a safe and confidential space with the opportunity to reflect on personal ministry objectives, and to gain perspective for the path ahead.


Monte Verde - Brazil


We are not a business, so we do not charge fees. Instead, we ask our guest(s) to cover the minimal, daily overhead costs as an offering. We operate mostly by donations to Life Impact Brazil.
We request that couples cover at least R$85 per night, and singles to cover at least R$75 per night.
*In order to secure your reservation, we request that our guests provide a 50% deposit in advance. This process can be done through our ministry bank account:
Bradesco Titular: Bradley W Meyer
Ag: 1020.0 e/ou Glaucia
Monte Verde, MG CEP: 1000241.9
Financial duress is considered when applying to stay at the Green Mountain Oasis. We do not want to turn away faithful ministry workers due to lack of funds or security deposits.


The morning is yours. Breakfast is at your leisure. We will provide your breakfast items. Please let us know in advance of any food allergies or undesired food items (included in the application). The heart of our ministry is ‘The Table.’ We would love if you would join us for a late lunch or dinner. There’s an amazing chef among us, so please join us at ‘The Table!’ This is our gift to you!

Recreational Activities

Monte Verde is a small, rustic, mountaintop resort village located in the state of Minas Gerais (southern border of state). Recreational activities include: hiking, biking, horseback riding, ATV’s, Jeep tours, birding, zip line, shopping and restaurants. AND we have the most amazing mineral water pouring straight from the ground. A two minute walk from our front door takes you – “straight to the spout where the water pours out!”


We request that couples cover at least R$85 per night, and singles to cover at least R$75 per night.

Here is a letter from one of our ministry guests

Dear Brad & Glaucia,
“Privilege, joy, honor and gratitude are a few words to describe what I experienced these past few days with you both. I was received with so much care and kindness; with ears to listen to my pain and suffering. Having someone dedicated with their time – with joy was most precious.
To receive words of life, encouragement, exhortation and prayer in Jesus’ name is something that constrains my heart. And it made me think and reflect toward making some difficult decisions in my role of church leadership, and with crisis issues in my own family. I left the Green Mountain Oasis transformed due in part because you helped me to listen to the voice of the “Good Shepherd” – and by seeking His help.”
