Review for Shepherds Refuge-Selah Ministries Inc, Dahlonega, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We were almost burned out and between churches and took a three-month sabbatical. Staying at Shepherd's Refuge Selah Ministries was a breath of fresh air - both spiritually and literally! It's been a few years now and I'm ready to go back! We can heartily recommend the ministry to anyone in need and for those willing to support. Brent & Cindy Farmer

Review for Shepherds Refuge-Selah Ministries Inc, Dahlonega, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2007 my wife and I felt led to resign a 15 year pastorate without another ministry to begin. We were not forced out, but felt that we had done all we could in the present charge.
We knew we needed some time away, and took a three-month sabbatical at our own expense, to prepare for the next phase of our ministry. We spent a week at Shepherd's Refuge and it was such a refreshing, uplifting, quiet, and healing time. Just to be in that beautiful setting and focus upon the Lord was rejuvenating. Sandy & Ruedi were such gracious hosts and made us feel like family and so comfortable in their home and lives.
The only time I wish we were wealthy is when I wish I could help support what they do. God's hand of blessing is upon this ministry that I am sure has helped so many of His servants continue in and be refreshed for their ministry, as it did for us.

Continuing in pastoral ministry as a result of time away and the spiritual reformation I experienced.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Although it's been a few years ago and changes may have already been made, what I experienced was perfect for what I needed at that time. I can think of nothing I would have changed. They were preparing to build cabins when we were there, and I could see the privacy of that being even better, although the apartment we stayed in was very private.
