Tax Deductible Gifts & Partnerships:
At Valley Haven, we're passionate about Jesus and His Gospel - His grace saturated announcement of freedom for the broken is at the heart of who we are and why this ministry exists. We're also passionate about people and building authentic relationships and community. Perhaps, we are most excited about where these two passions intersect... cultivating authentic relationships that are built upon Jesus and His Gospel and grace. We hope that excites you too!
Valley Haven Camp and Retreat Center is located on 175 acres of beautiful, wooded land full of winding creeks, open fields, and mountain views. Established in the 1960s as Parson of the Hills Foundation, our non profit 501(c)3 operates as Valley Haven Camp and Retreat Center. Our mission is to provide a peaceful place of rest where people experience renewal in Jesus Christ.
Throughout the year we accomplish this mission by providing 1) an amazing 175 acre "God space" for personal and group retreats and 2) offering pastoral care and Gospel centered teaching to those who are with us for group retreats or personal times of restoration.
We are a simple, relational, authentic, Gospel centered place of refuge. One of our core values is affordability. We recognize that for groups to get away to cultivate intimacy with Christ, build community or experience restoration - they must be able to afford to do so. Because of this core conviction, Valley Haven Camp and Retreat Center strives to maintain a simple, affordable pricing structure that is focused on sustainability so that we can continue to provide a place of retreat and refuge for those seeking it. We are so grateful for your partnership! Your prayers, service and gifts help us to accomplish this mission and impact hundreds of lives each year.
Financial Partnerships: All gifts are tax deductible as we are a 501(c)3, non profit ministry. We are governed by a Board of Directors and make every effort to be as thoughtful, wise and cost-conscious as possible when using funds. Your financial support helps us to maintain this 175 acre property along with its facilities and to continue providing relational care for those seeking rest and renewal in the Lord. Your support is tax deductible. Gifts can be made 1) Through our secure online giving portal above or 2) Mailed to Valley Haven Camp and Retreat Center at 7655 Valley Haven Drive, Hickory, NC 28602. Thank you!
Volunteer Partnerships: We would love for you to partner with us by coming out to serve. We love hosting service groups as they come out to beautify and maintain the property. It's a great way to pour into ministry that happens daily right here in your own backyard. We've seen so many life changing relationships formed out here while trimming trees and cutting wood! If you have a particular trade skill (carpentry, plumbing, etc.), please let us know in advance before your group comes out!
Prayer Partnerships: Literally hundreds of lives are impacted out here each year. We see countless numbers of people place their faith in Christ and so many relationships cultivated out here each year. Would you consider partnering with us through regular prayer for those retreating with us: missionaries on sabbatical, pastors being recharged, marriages being healed, kids retreating with youth groups, etc. If so, please contact us via email or Facebook so we can give you some specific ways you can support this ministry in prayer.
Please contact us for more details about any of these partnerships. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for partnering with us!
