Elisha's House exists to help followers of Jesus use their
blessings to bless others
through giving, serving, and hospitality
We believe that God has called us all to participate in the Great Commission. However, we are not all called to go. Some of us has been blessed and gifted in ways that allow us to send and support those that go. Elisha's House is a way to connect senders with goers.
There are a lot of ways that you can get involved. By partnering with us financially, you can help us provide a place of respite for missionaries home on leave. You can also donate your time and talents if you are a professional contractor, plumber, electrician, builder, etc. Once our houses are done, they need furnishing so we would love donations of new and very gently used furniture as well. If you are interested in donating land or a building for a future Elisha's House, and for other ways to get involved, feel free to contact us!
God told Abraham in Genesis 12 that He would bless him so that all peoples on earth would be blessed through him. At Elisha's House, we believe that God blesses His children so that we can participate in the joy of blessing others and in doing so, glorify our Father in heaven.

We are not all called to go serve overseas. Yet, The Great Commission from Jesus was His last statement on earth. He did not give that task to only a select few. We are all called to participate in making disciples of the whole world. At Elisha's House, we want to help remove as many barriers as possible for those that are obediently following the call to GO. By doing so, we fulfill our role in The Great Commission. (More...)
When missionaries go overseas, they sacrifice most of their concept of home. They typically sell their house and most of their possessions in order to start a new life abroad. However, they often still have to come back stateside every 2-3 years for support raising, visa requirements, or just to visit family. When they do, "home" isn't really there anymore. We want to change that for as many missionaries as we can.
Post it, tweet it, share it. The more people you tell, the more help we can receive.
Can't spend a dime? Then, spend some time! We are looking for professional contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc. to donate their skills to our building projects.
We believe that God's primary desire is reconciliation with His children throughout the world. From Genesis to Revelation, we see God's heart for the nations and in Matthew 28:19, Jesus reiterated this when He instructed His followers to go and make disciples of all nations. This desire, as illustrated in Revelation 7:9, is to have people of every nation, tribe, and tongue worshipping together in their own cultural uniqueness around His throne. Today there are still over 3.1 billion people on the planet who have never heard the Gospel. In Matthew 9:37-38, Jesus said "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." (More...)
