Your Home Away From Home
We are called to love the stranger among us, Remembering that we are strangers and pilgrims in the land.
The International Guest House is a non-profit house owned and maintained by the Allegheny Conference of Mennonite Church USA.
It exists to show the love of Christ through the ministry of hospitality to guests from all over the world.
The mission includes the following:
- To provide hospitality to the stranger as Christ suggests we do in Matthew 25:35, “I was a stranger and you took me in.”
- To provide our guests with secure, clean, short-term lodging; to provide a warm welcome, friendship, and to show what it means to be Christian in the Mennonite tradition.
- To provide guests the opportunity to gather and engage in friendly, cultural and religious conversation at the breakfast table and evening tea.
- To provide service opportunities for Mennonite and other volunteers who are committed to the mission of Christian hospitality that is IGH.

“From the tea to the conversations and music to advice and cozy beds...
“....this was all I could have hoped for and more.”
