The James Island Presbyterian Church has provided housing for retreats and visiting volunteer work groups since the fall of 1989.
Throughout the years, hundreds of visiting adult, college-age and/or youth groups stayed on the church campus while providing volunteer support at many of the Charleston area human service organizations or simple came to Charleston for a weekend or week-long retreats.
In the fall of 2003, the James Island Presbyterian Church expanded this ministry by leasing a house adjacent to the church campus for accommodating retreats or visiting groups.
Our rate for staying in the Mission House during 2021 is $8.00/person/day with a minimum fee of $100.00/day (up to 12 guests) and a minimum two-day stay. This facility can accommodate a maximum of 25 people.
To help continue providing this ministry, some simply policies have been developed to facilitate meeting the needs of the congregation as well as the needs of visiting groups. These are “common sense” guidelines and expectations and are simply intended to prevent problems or misunderstandings during your stay on our campus.
