Here you’ll find a place of sanctuary, prayed in and stayed in, surrounded by nature where God is near. It’s a place of rest for being and breathing and nurturing your soul in the Way of Jesus. It’s a place of peace. Come, may I offer you space and direction to prepare for the journey God has planned for you.
Take time to retreat, to refrain for a set time from our lives as usual to rest our souls with Him and learn a way of living that is less burdensome and more serene.
It’s in this spirit we welcome you to our Garden Poustinia, asmallplaceofsactuary nestled in a nearby grove on our 30-acre property in Hillsboro, Oregon. Originally an Eastern Russian Orthodox tradition, a poustinia serves as a hermitage, where one can go for hours of silence and solitude to pray and fast alone in the presence of God.
