A place to retreat and reconnect with the Father.

Solomon’s Porch Retreat Center


Solomon’s Porch is the former Hospital for Lynch, Kentucky. It is now used to house ministry teams, youth groups, reunions and hold mission planning meetings. It’s also a retreat for anyone who needs to get away with God and find peace and rest in the mountains or work! Whichever the case may be. The facility also includes meeting rooms and a gift shop.

Bored at home?

How about helping me remodel a room. This is room 107 or the bunk room as some call it. It is down the second hall at the end of the first floor. Not a lot of people stay in it and you will understand why when you look at the pictures.

So get your creative juices going and help me decide on colors, how to arrange, and how to decorate. I have enclosed a 'not to scale' diagram and picuters. If you need more information let me know.

The finished product will take some time. As you can image, no teams are coming to the Porch at this time. But you can help us by helping me plan.

You can email your ideas to theporch@meridzo.org
