Missionaries and Ministry Workers Need Rest.
Around 80% of Christian missionaries burn out and quit before finishing what they felt called to do. Almost 50% of ministry workers suffer, or have suffered, from depression and end up dropping out of Christian service all together. Our mission is to fight this burnout and fatigue by providing free Get Aways for missionaries across the world and by growing the largest network of Christian owned lodging, so that all ministry workers can find a place to rest, at a price within their means. Our hope is to provide restoration for these individuals; physically, mentally and spiritually, so that they can continue serving and doing God’s good work.
Hello from the Christian Hospitality Network
CHN exists to do two things and both are tied together through our belief that we can show the love of Christ through hospitality.
So who are we and what do we do? First, CHN is the largest growing network of bed and breakfasts, country inns, wilderness lodges, vacation cottages, cabins and boutique hotels that are owned by Christians who are willing to offer these enchanting places of rest at discounted rates to church workers and missionaries. This network consists of a wide variety of unique lodging choices across the world and we encourage you to take a look at them, even if you aren’t a ministry worker. Each of these places are owned by individuals that are filled with kindness and generosity; two qualities that we believe are fundamental elements of hospitality. Second, we host Get Aways. These free vacations for missionaries have become the heart and soul of CHN. We bring together a team of people, consisting of everything from hair stylists to doctors, who are passionate about serving those who serve. We host these Get Aways throughout the year at gorgeous resorts around the world and dedicate every second, from the moment our missionaries arrive, to restoring and empowering them so that they can continue to do what they were called to do.

“A blessing to my wife and I”
“The Christian Hospitality Network was a blessing to my wife and I. During 2012, when we were exhausted from ministry, CHN provided us with a Missionary GetAway in Croatia so we could rest and refuel before returning to ministry! “

“It has touched our hearts”
“We have been so loved on by everyone who came to volunteer at the Brazil GetAway (June 2018). It has touched our hearts to know that people in the US have donated funds and items to be a blessing to us as missionaries. Thank you, CHN, and all of the donors and volunteers. We love you all!!!”
