Who is En Gedi for?

          En Gedi Retreat is available to full time pastors and missionaries who need time alone with God, families and children are welcome.

What is "Open Use"?

At En Gedi Retreat,

"we provide the place and He provides the God."

There are no programs, schedules, counseling, or agendas. We trust that you know best how to spend your time with God, whether alone, just your spouse, or your whole family. Sleeping, hiking, skiing, watching movies, studying, mission planning, or just sitting and talking to God all sound like good ideas to us!



How do I book?

          Booking is as simple as sending an e-mail to

Please include:

-Your Name and Position/Title

-Desired dates of visit

-Church/Mission name AND website

-Number of people coming include ages and names, ("spouse" doesn't count as a name)

-Cell phone number and home address


Is it really free?


En Gedi is available at no cost to those who use it.  We raise finances in order to support the building process and upkeep so no pastor or missionary will be able to use the "I don't have enough money" excuse to not go on a vacation.

Any Questions?

We're sure we weren't able to answer all your important questions.

Please feel free to send us an e-mail or give us a call!

We are here to serve, and can be contacted at:
