Concept & Genesis
Years ago, in our conception of the entire work, we had seen a place of rest, recuperation, reflection, retreat and revival for ministers of the gospel and the brethren altogether. Then, we, in faith named such a place “Bethany Resort”. This was a thought from what Bethany was to Jesus and His disciples where Mary, Martha and Lazarus welcomed Him. A place He normally resorted to after much labour in the cities.
Though it will draw several thousands regularly for Retreats and Renewal times, we still expect the camp to serve as a place for quiet Resort for individuals and families who are seeking God for personal revival and direction for their lives and ministries.
We hope it will maintain its quiet nature as we deliberately plan its development to ensure naturalness, simplicity and functionality. We expect quiet spots under the trees in the orchard that can become a “Bethel experience” for some others even while they only arrange some stones as pillows as they sleep away in their dreams of open heavens on the carpet grasses.
We also expect it to serve the purpose of quiet study and research, constructive thinking and strategic planning for top leaders of ministries and denominations as they resort there to use the Library and Media facilities.
