MIssionary and ministry retreats

North Fork Mountain Inn wants to help support missionaries and people serving in ministries around the world. If you volunteer or serve in part time or full time Christian ministry, we will offer speical discounted rates for staying with us.

Part of the premise for buying this peaceful, secluded, mountain getaway, was to provide a place where pastors and missionaries could come to relax and be refreshed. Ed and Carol Fischer have supported many missionaries and ministries around the world, and wanted to provide a relaxing envrionment to contemplate how God is working in their ministry and to be encourgaed as they enjoy quality R&R in a beautiful mountian setting.

Ed and Carol enjoy leading short term mission trips. Ed Travels to Nairobi, Kenya with teams that teach computer skills at Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology located in nearby Karen, Kenya. NEGST is a graduate school that offers a Masters and PhD program in Divinity. The purpose of this short term team is to offer training in basic computing and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. They also teach computer related classes in blogging, website development, and other tools that will likely be useful when they graduate. Ed & Carol have also been on many short-term mission trips to Japan, Senegal, and Kenya.

Enjoy Ed and Carol's gift of hospitality as they serve you during your stay at the Inn. North Fork Mountain Inn is a perfect venue for ministry team retreats. Each morning begins with a gourmet breakfast. Gourmet Picnic Baskets are available along with casual dining 5 nights a week. Fine dining is available on Saturday evenings and is usually preceded by a wine tasting.
