Imagine a world without clergy burnout

There is an alarming departure rate from the ministry. There is an answer! Full-time pastors and missionaries need to experience Sabbath rest with their spouses and families.

Consider the vast world of short-term rentals, including platforms like Airbnb and VRBO, which involve millions of independent, entrepreneurial-minded vacation home owners globally.

What if there was a dedicated short-term rental platform allowing these millions of hosts to generously contribute free night stays to support full-time ministers and their families in their need for respite?

Herein lies the potential to be the most impactful and comprehensive solution to combat clergy burnout worldwide.

This is a game changer.

Lodge Lovers, in collaboration with Be Still bnb, proudly presents this platform. We are passionate about strengthening the Church by supporting Christ-led, Bible-following Church leaders and missionaries.

Here are some things to know

For clergy:

You can apply as a full-time missionary or clergy member. Just click on the clergy application link and create an account.

Once your application is complete you will be able to see the available properties but will need to wait upon approval before you can reserve as an approved missionary or church leader.

If you already have a Lodge Lovers account, you can click on the clergy application link to update your account.

For hosts:

Welcome to a place where your heart’s generosity finds purpose. You are at the right platform if you have:

  • A generous heart.
  • A commitment to stewarding your treasure wisely.
  • A concern for Christ’s Church leaders.

You are one of us. Join us in providing nights of solace for church leaders at your property. This act becomes an investment in the Kingdom and the communities it serves. Donating nights is easy! Simply go to your listing’s calendar, opt-in for donating nights to clergy, and pick the nights you wish to offer to full-time ministers and their families. You can set donations or blended donations: donated nights will be visible to clergy as available, but unavailable to public travelers; blended donations can be booked by paying guests or reserved by ministers and missionaries for free; first-come, first-served.

Go to your profile page > your listings > calendar link > choose dates to make donation or blended donation > save.

When you donate:

  • Lodge Lovers will lower your host fees by up to 1%
  • Lodge Lovers will donate 10% of our profit from your bookings on participating listings to Be Still Inc., further facilitating Sabbath rest for His servants.

For paying guests:

Booking your next vacation through Lodge Lovers not only enables a memorable getaway enjoying your outdoor passions, but also supports the mission of ending clergy burnout. Every dollar spent strengthens our platform’s impact and directly benefits those who generously host Church leaders.

Furthermore, you can have satisfaction knowing that a percentage of every booking on Lodge Lovers is dedicated to combating clergy burnout.

Thank you for being a part of this crucial mission!
