Our vision is to see clergy and missionary couples renewed, refreshed and restored in order to return to healthy productive ministry.
We are answering the call to help provide a source of respite for those who are in need of renewal in body, mind and spirit through Pastoral and Coaching care. Our desire is to provide a safe haven in which healing can take place by allowing clergy/missionary couples to safely unburden the hurts and pressures of life and ministry.
Since we are not providing psychological counseling to guests, our default method of helping you is “coaching.” Sometimes we depart from that for mentoring – sharing from our experiences of over 33 years of involvement in pastoral ministry and work with missions. If we believe that counseling would benefit you, we will recommend that to you.
Your Winchester Bay Oasis Program
At the Winchester Bay Oasis we have several ways we can serve you. We’ll ask you as you book with us how we can best meet your needs.
We are here to serve and strengthen you as pastors and missionaries. We want to provide you with a unique place for rest and recreation, as well as informal mentoring and coaching. Our hope is that by providing this place in the midst of God’s beauty and creation, you will draw closer to Him and gain a fresh call and vision for your ministry.
