Prayer Cottages

About the

Set Apart For Prayer

Several years ago, Don Leetch & Dean Kerns, founders of Outreach Center, had a vision of building a place that would be set apart and used solely for the purpose of prayer and meditating on the word of God. In 1991, that dream became a reality with the construction of two prayer cottages.
Cottage A and Cottage B are nestled back in the wooded area adjoining the church property, so quietness and solitude are easily found. Each cottage is a one-room kitchenette with a separate bathroom that can sleep up to 4 adults. They both include private decks looking out into the surrounding forest.
A Prayer Hiking Trail is also available for use. This ¾ mile loop begins just outside the cottages and leads you through the natural Ozark terrain. Wooden signs with scripture line the trail.

How it works

Plan a Visit

Both cottage A and B can be reserved on an hourly or per night basis for up to two nights in a row. There is no charge for using the cottages; however, we encourage donations to help us with the upkeep and maintenance.

Take Your Time

Cottage A and B have similar furnishings, but are unique in their own feel. Take your time to relax, meditate on God's word and seek out His answers for you.

It's important to note that the use of these cottages are set aside specifically for the act of prayer and meditation and should not be used for 'vacation time'.

Share Your Story

Each cottage is stocked with various journals and writing supplies for you to document your stay and any testimonies you would like to share with other visitors. We also encourage you to read past visitors' stories.

When preparing to leave, we ask that you complete a cleaning checklist before checking out of your cottage.
