Volunteer Opportunities at Christ's Peace House of Prayer

Christ Peace House of Prayer provides a place to withdraw from the busyness of life, into a space where one is able be still and draw closer to God.   It is a grace to be able to provide this environment, especially in the world we live in today where so many people have lost touch with the “one thing necessary” (Luke 10:42) .Our retreat center operates on free will donations which is why we are asking for your help.  Our doors are open to all.  We simply ask our guests for a donation for the expenses of running the retreat center according to the means of each individual.
