Despite the struggles 2020 brought us, you stepped up, took charge, and we have accomplished our goal regardless of what 2020 threw our way.
Thank you to all who gave to the Spruce Campaign the last few years. It’s a God-given dream you have helped fulfill.

Welcome to The Harbor
In December 2018, Harbor Ministries closed on the Blue Spruce Manor and realized a six-year dream: to own an anchor site for Harbor Ministries events and to create an income producer for Harbor Ministries for years to come.
By being debt free we will create a net income for Harbor Ministries of $100,000+ every year, based on the past five years of rentals.
This truly represents a legacy giving opportunity.
2020 was a year like no other in our lifetime.
But in that year of disruption and unrest, we have an incredible story of finishing and retiring the debt. That was something only God could do.
SHIPS WERE MADE FOR MISSION, BUT COMING INTO THE HARBOR IS CRITICAL
Over the last 10 years, Harbor Ministries has launched more than 20 different RHYTHMinTWENTY and ROGUE Journey groups, including leaders from 40 states and three countries.
We now have the opportunity to take this vision to the next level by having a paid off anchor site, the Blue Spruce.
A place that will create a literal income stream for Harbor Ministries for years to come.
An anchor site that will house the vision of developing the next generation of strategic leaders from around the country.
A site to house the restorative work and retreat for pastors, business and ministry leaders, and their spouses.
A place that has become “holy ground” for the many leaders that have finished a RHYTHMinTWENTY or ROGUE Journey.
A place that will house the RHYTHMinTWENTY, ROGUE Journey, and follow-up events.
A place where small groups could gather and follow up on the mission of living with rhythm, leaving a legacy, and finishing well.
A location that for years to come will be the center of the deep investment in leaders that is having exponential impact in church, families, and communities all over the country.
A place that will encourage, restore, resource, and inspire leaders to an all out pursuit of God.
The price of the property was 1.75 million dollars. The board of directors of Harbor Ministries is committed to this being a debt free endeavor. The 1.8 million dollars will cover the eventual purchase price, and any needed repairs.
