Greetings from Christian Renewal Center!
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.” -Zephaniah 3:17 (NASB)
We are Tim and Julie Hansen and it is our pleasure, along with our staff, to serve you through our ministry of hospitality and through the fellowship we have around the Word of God. Our desire is that you would be touched by the Lord, by His Spirit, in our correspondence together whether you are coming here with a Christian Organization, CRC Sponsored Retreat, or on a Personal Retreat.
In our often busy and hectic lives, it is good sometimes to pull away from the “crowd,” as Jesus did, to spend time with His Father. We trust that as you come to worship the Lord, seek His will for your life, and renew your mind through the reading of His Word that you will leave here refreshed and rested in your spirit. “How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, who seek Him with all their heart.” -Psalm 119:2 (NASB)
While you are here we also hope that you have fun hiking the Silver Falls, riding our zip line, and joining us at the Lamppost for a good book, espresso, or special treat. “O taste and see that the Lord is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!” -Psalm 34:8 (NASB)
In closing, we long for you to be encouraged and equipped in your faith while here, so that when you return home you will love God more deeply, minister more effectively to the Body of Christ, and be able to witness to those who do not know Jesus’ saving grace with new boldness.
-Tim and Julie Hansen
