About Us

The BMI Bed & Breakfast and Oasis is a service of Bridge Ministries, Inc., which has helped people find and fulfill their God-given life calling since 1998.  Our mission is to serve our guests with the graciousness and hospitality displayed by Christ himself.

As our guest, our desire is to serve you and your needs. Whether you need overnight accommodations, a relaxing weekend retreat, a romantic getaway, a place to pray and study, or another arrangement, we will seek to accommodate, offer encouragement, and provide a great breakfast as well!

BMI Bed and Breakfast is a relaxing, cozy, back-to-nature getaway for those who need a place to stay, are looking for a relaxing getaway, would like to spend time with family, etc.  Choose the Vineyard Suite, the Library room, or the Pondview Room (see photos and rates here). The Vineyard Suite includes full, private use of the Jacuzzi Room.

Donations from the BMI Bed and Breakfast are used to provide retreats for Pastors and missionaries through the BMI Oasis, and to expand our ministries in Africa, Europe, and the USA.

BMI Oasis is a way to meet the specific needs of Pastors, missionaries, and ministers. We provide three retreat options: the Revitalization Retreat (an opportunity to rest and restore), the Refocus Retreat (to rediscover and clarify life-calling and personal boundaries), and the Renewal Retreat (utilizing our Love and Respect materials). See www.bmioasis.com page for details.
