Guest House Closed.

Together, We Celebrated Over 50 Years of Hospitality!

Our ministry of hospitality is sadly closed...

After a heartfelt discernment process, the Board of the International Guest House in Washington DC reached consensus on April 30, 2020 to begin closure of the hospitality ministry and transition towards selling the house in 2021.

With declining revenue from guest bookings to the forecasted trends living with the Covid-19 pandemic, the practice of hospitality in shared spaces of close proximity was no longer sustainable.

It is the sincere hope of the Board that the core mission of welcoming the stranger will be transferred to other faithful ventures.

The International Guest House was able to live a long beautiful life due to the hundreds of volunteers who served in its mission of hospitality. Those of us serving on the Board in these final years are immensely grateful to everyone who has helped make the International Guest House a special place of love and acceptance where the spirit of Christ was at work.
