Welcome to the Brook
The Brook at Bethpage is a place where pastors and missionaries can escape the rigors of everyday life for the purpose of study, relaxation and seeking God.
Every year, pastors by the hundreds are leaving the ministry, many of whom suffered burnout and stress from ministry-related activities.
With this in mind, “The Brook” was created as a habitation for the presence of the Lord…a place of refuge, rest, restoration and reconciliation.
Because this is a divine appointment for God’s chosen ones, there is no charge to spend time at The Brook for pastors, missionaries, and their immediate families except for a service fee. This is not a vacation spot, but rather a unique experience.
In addition to the accommodations for pastors, we provide a secondary use for ministry groups as retreats.
The Brook also serves as the U.S. Training Center for Evangelism Explosion International.
Refuge, Rest and Restoration
At a time when Elijah needed provision, God provided for his destiny.
In 1 Kings 17:5 God instructed Elijah the Tishbite to hide himself by the brook Cherith which is before the Jordan.
The Brook at Bethpage is located on approximately 100 acres in the beautiful Ozark Hill Country of southwest Missouri.
We like to share some of the testimonies of what God has done in the lives of those who have stayed at The Brook at Bethpage.
