• Fair Havens

    In your own life, have the seas been rough? Have you been battered by storms, or blown off course? If so, join us. Fair Havens is a ministry to restore hope to the weary traveler. It's an anchor for the soul, a safe harbor offering spiritual refreshment. Fair Havens is a digital portal to multiple resources bringing renewal, repair, and strength for the onward journey.

    Our spiritual journey has been long, and often difficult. The storms of life can be disorienting. Sometimes we've found ourselves on our own and without support. Our needs are not being met. But we are not alone. The Lord is near. He desires that we turn to him, for he is the one who restores our soul (Psalm 23:3). For us the best help has come through God's Word, and we want to share that with you. — Douglas & Vicki
