Holy Ground Hermitage


May we all grow in grace and peace, and not neglect the silence that is printed in the center of our being. It will not fail us. It is more than silence. Jesus spoke, you remember, of the spring of living water

.                  -Thomas Merton


        - Personal Retreat Place

        - Spiritual Companioning

        - Inner Healing

Holy Ground grew out of a vision Betty Voigt (founder/director) had when her husband, Dave, wanted to buy land and build a log home.  They were walking around the proposed wooded acreage when she imagined adding a small cabin for solitude and prayer there.  Several years after the home was constructed, she received encouragement from others to go ahead with the hermitage, and Dave built that too.  Holy Ground Hermitage was dedicated to God in 2001 and since then over a hundred people have made retreat there, some many times over.  The ministries of spiritual companioning and inner healing have since been added.
