The Inn of Last Resort

Formerly Christian Training Center International, we are a ministry of healing, restoring & training.

WE NEED YOUR HELP 🚨Here at The Inn, our ministry focuses on youth, families and Christian leaders. It's no secret that each of these demographics is under attack today. Take a look at these statistics:➡️ Christian denominations—Protestant and Catholic—had the highest divorce rates among 12 religions surveyed. (Source: Pew Research Center)➡️ Pastors are feeling increasingly burnt out, lonely or unwell, and more than 40 percent have considered leaving the ministry in the past year. (Source: Barna Group)➡️ In a study of 14,000 U.S. children, researchers found that 40 percent lack strong emotional bonds with their parents—bonds that are crucial to success later in life. (Source: Princeton University)Help us bring healing and restoration to those who desperately need it. Our goal is to raise $150,000 before the end of the year. Thanks to the support of generous donors, the first $50,000 given will be matched! Please partner with us financially to see lives transformed.Give Now: ... See MoreSee Less
