Announcing the Anderson House: A Place for Rest

“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength… – Isaiah 30:15

Jim and Lois Anderson have spent nearly two decades coming alongside pastors and their families, encouraging them to rest and helping them take hold of the gift from God that Sabbath is.  To honor their years of labor and love and to continue their legacy of blessing pastors and church leaders, the NCD and Camp Shamineau have partnered to construct The Anderson House.

To be designed, built, and managed by Camp Shamineau with funds that will be raised by NCD, The Anderson House will consist of two units, accommodating up to four people each.  Church leaders in the NCD will have first rights to use the space for times of Sabbath rest, rejuvenation, and reconnecting with God.

At District Conference on Monday, August 31, the NCD and Shamineau staff had the privilege of presenting Jim and Lois with the plans for this space, thanking them for their outpouring of love and service to pastors and church leaders in the District.  

Donations have already begun for this project, whose estimated goal is $100K, including a board-approved leadership gift of $20K from the district to help jump-start the fundraising.

If you, individually, or your church would like to contribute to this project and ministry, you can do so by sending a check to the North Central District with “Anderson House” in the memo line, or by donating online here. Thank you!
