Billy Graham NC Home Becomes A Place Of Retreat For Leaders

The Montreat, North Carolina (NC) home of the late evangelist Billy Graham, where he penned some of his greatest sermons becomes a place of retreat for ministry leaders, to rest, reflect and also recharge.

This new development was made possible by Charlotte businessman Stephen L. Thomas, Cameron and writer/speaker Ruth Graham, according to the website, Billy’s Home Place.

It offers several experiences designed to rejuvenate pastors and help believers discover God’s will through diving deep into God’s Word,” the website says, adding, “If you serve as a vocational missionary or pastor with 20 or more years, take a few moments and fill out the Pastoral Rest and Sabbatical Form. There is no charge for pastors or missionaries who stay at Billy’s Home Place.”

In an attempt to raise money for her daughter’s treatment, Ruth put up her parents house for sell in 2021, and it was sold for $750,000 on Sept. 1, 2021.

According to Ruth via an interview with The Christianpost, she said the house was bought by her parent in 1940.

It was selected because it was right across the street from my grandparents,” she said. “I was born during the time my family lived in the house. The Los Angeles Crusades and [my father’s] tour of England happened during those years. … it is where it all began.”

The Grahams later moved from the two-story house in 1957, but still lived in Montreat. In recent years, the house was used as a vacation and rental home before being sold in 2021.

Although, the house still remains in good shape and contains memorabilia from the Grahams’ young family life, including photos, books, and furnishings.

Rich in Christian history and gospel-legacy, this humble estate is more than a standing relic of a life well lived. Rather this house serves as a continuation of Dr. Graham’s legacy,” Billy’s Home Place states. “A retreat for weary pastors and missionaries; a solace to seek the face of God. It is to that end that Billy’s Home Place was established.”
