To Our Guests,
Westwood Ministries was birthed in the heart of God so that servant-leaders would have a place and a people to turn to for rest, restoration and training. Since 1989 the ministries of Westwood have been provided at a very low cost for those in need. Many “partners” have contributed prayerfully, financially, and physically so that Westwood’s ministries and services can remain affordable for Christian leaders. We know that when Christian leaders need help the most, they often can afford it the least.
The reality is that it costs to provide each ministry and service that you find here at Westwood Retreat. Many of our guests and folks who are inquiring for the first time about Westwood ask about the cost for counseling and lodging. To answer those questions we share with you the following new rates.
Our current suggested minimum donation for staying at Westwood Retreat is as follows:
Daily rate per room $45
These suggested donations all go to upkeep/replace the equipment and are payable at the Ministry Office prior to the activity.
Westwood provides “pastoral counseling” (soul care) and theophostic ministry for Christian leaders and their families. The suggested minimum donation of $40 goes toward further counselor training, counseling materials and resources. Comparable counseling is provided at a cost of $75-$120 per session.
The above are Westwood’s suggested minimum donations and we would never want you to need rest, counseling and retreat and let the cost deter you from coming to Westwood Ministries. Please let us know in advance your needs.
These suggested minimum donations only cover a part of the actual cost of providing each of the ministries and services of Westwood. Any donations above this minimum are greatly appreciated and will help cover the actual cost of providing quality care for each servant-leader. Credit cards are accepted for your convenience.
Become a Financial Partner
Another vital way that you can be a part of the Westwood Family is by becoming a Financial Partner. A pledge card or our on-line credit card donation site can enable you to give on a regular basis. This helps us provide these ministries at low cost to Christian leaders now and in the future. Whether you are able to donate during your stay at Living Hope Retreat or not, this is a way of partnering with us. Every monthly gift, no matter the amount, matters greatly! On-line Credit Card Donation is available.
If you have further questions, please contact our Ministry Office. Our prayer is that God blesses you richly during your stay at Living Hope Retreat.
