Hope Retreats International is the manifestation of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit of God within a small group of true disciples of Christ who have been lead by the Holy Spirit to unite their individual God given talents and resources in a united effort to show a hurting world the love Christ our Lord has for it in very practical ways. After browsing through our site and witnessing all we have already accomplished in just fourteen years through this small group of true disciples of Christ, imagine what we might be able to do if we could get just 5% of the professed Christians in the USA to join us in this effort!
Before reading this or any other page please go and read the page entitled “Breaking News as We Celebrate our 15th Anniversary” and scrowl down to article entitled "$20 Million Fund Raising Campaign" as we are in the process of re-structuring and other than our orphanages abroad, we are concentrating all our efforts in the Southern USA to build a retreat for troubled & at risk youth, specializing in mental health recovery, the elderly who are in need of convalescent living & a Christian hospice, in addition to working with our returning damaged verterans as we have found these are major needs all over the country. This retreat will serve not only Tennessee, but also our surrounding states, Arkansas, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama & Mississippi, providing residency to better than 250 residents.
It is now our intentions to develop a successful program that addresses these needs over the next five years and perfect such a program before branching out into other areas of the country. The facility we are building in Tennessee will be large enough and will serve the whole South East. After perfecting this program we will duplicate in regions across the country.
We have found through massive research that many of our youth have problems dealing with mental health issues, thus we are committed to specializing in mental illness and helping these youth find healing through our Christ centered resident program of recovery where our thesis is that through the use of nouthetic Biblical counseling we can deliver them from their bondage to medications & nightmare of mental illness in 70% + in these youth’s lives.
In an article written by our CEO Dr. Randall Maxwell found on our “Breaking News” page entitled “$20,000,000 Fund Raising Campaign” Dr. Maxwell shares a portion of his research on this topic where he explores the problem with the Mental Health industry, the cost to the American tax payer, and a solution he is perfecting at Hope Retreat of the South/ He also proves to you, the American tax payer how he can build out our whole facility for just what we are able to save you in what you are already spending to keep 20% of those in your local jail with mental illness, building out whole facility for actually half of what you are already spending just keeping in local jails in just one of the many states we serve.
Please go now and read the first article on our "Breaking News" page as it will give all the information of our new retreat and our game plan of operations and explain our 20 Million dollar fund raising campaign. The rest of the website has been intentionally left on site to give our visitor an idea of the ministries we have been involved over the past 14 years, both our success and our failures.
After much research, and many hours spent in prayer and fasting, as well as in keeping with our national focus, since an executive board meeting the first of September, on what Scripture tells us in James 1:27;
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. We have chosen to develop a community of resident retreats doing just that, one for troubled & at risk youth and the second, a place of refuge of convalescing living for the elderly.
