In April of 1998, Brian and Theresa Hendrick felt a burden for those who serve in Christian ministry and felt called to develop a retreat ministry for them. The Lord laid Mark 6:31 on their hearts where Christ says to his disciples, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." (NIV). In the fall of 1999, Quiet Place Ministries (QPM) was incorporated and received non-profit status from the IRS.
The purpose of QPM is to help strengthen those in ministry in their walk with the Lord, their marriages, and their families. The pressures in ministry can be great and many become discouraged. Often the family suffers from a lack of time together. Quiet Place Ministries seeks to provide time away (a retreat) where families can spend time together and with the Lord. Because those with lower incomes have a harder time getting away, QPM has a special burden to help them, although others who have a need for a retreat are also welcome.
It is the prayer of Brian and Theresa, along with the rest of the Board, that God will provide property to develop for the ministry. As of this time, however, QPM does not own property or facilities. Therefore, cottages, cabins, vacation homes or Bed and Breakfast Inns are rented for guests to use for a retreat. If they prefer a more rustic retreat, camping may also be available. QPM tries to provide facilities in a quiet, peaceful setting.
