The Drawbridge Ministry exists to bless and encourage Pastors and their spouses by providing retreats for rest and rejuvenation.

"Your vision to support and encourage pastors and their wives is unique. Thank you for all the ways you pamper us and sacrificially care for us and others." Pastor, IA

“In just a few days, [we] felt a weight lifted from us that we hadn't felt in a long time. We grew closer to each other and stronger in our focus on the Lord.” Pastor, MO

“This place has been a great place of refuge and refreshment during a difficult time in ministry. It is a one-of-a-kind ministry in our area and so, so needed.” Pastor, NE

The Drawbridge is a ministry with a specific focus on caring for those in Christian leadership who care for others. We exist to encourage Pastors, as they seek to fulfill the call of God on their lives. 


At The Drawbridge Retreat Center, Pastors and their spouses can disengage from ministry duties to rest and relax in a luxurious setting.


The Drawbridge provides 2 and 3-night retreat opportunities in a setting located just 30 minutes from Omaha. Here guests find a place to rest and relax as they wind their way through the forest and arrive at our peaceful five & a half-acre estate nestled in the wooded foothills near the Platte River. Deer, wild turkey, and many varieties of wildlife frequent our grounds daily. Enjoy the trails throughout nearly 250 acres in the development. Nature awaits as guests experience the ministry of The Drawbridge.


The Drawbridge is a non-denominational Christian ministry — Bible-based and believing it to be the infallible and inspired Word of God. Jesus is Lord — period.

No agenda - no program - no charge - just come and relax.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and 

I will give you rest." 

Matthew 11:28
