Thirty years ago, Ken and Linda Helser purchased fifty-two acres of land in the heart of North Carolina that they named A Place for the Heart.  Since then, this land has facilitated numerous men’s and women’s retreats, youth camps, and discipleship schools such as the 18 Inch Journey.  Many of the original buildings on the land that once used to house farm equipment are now functioning as music, art and photography studios, as well as community living spaces.  We believe in using what we have and stewarding what the Lord has provided.  As a staff, we are continuing to dream into more renovations to help this land grow into an even more effective ministry.  All donations made to A Place for the Heart sow directly into the ministry and seeing people transformed by the love of God. 


During our 18 Inch Journey we have 70 people living on the land for two months, yet we have been functioning with only one bathroom in our meeting space.  We are currently in the process of adding two new bathrooms as well as an outdoor grill shed for our kitchen to better serve the students and retreaters who come to the land.  This project is a big financial undertaking and we need your help to see it through!  Click the button below to learn more about this project and how you can support this dream and the practical needs of the 18 Inch Journey.


Last year, we launched a campaign to build new cabins on our land.  In just thirty days, we raised enough funds to build two beautiful new cabins and an outdoor amphitheater!  We are blown away by your support and generosity.  These new spaces have served our 2015 Phase One students, 18 Inch Journey retreat attendees and 2016 Phase Two students.  To see more photos of the completed cabins, click the button below!
