Jesus is the reason we serve

Serving People through Appropriate Development Evangel (S.P.A.D.E)


Welcome! Thank you for your interest and visit to our website. SPADE is a non-profit, 501(c)3, faith-based Christian Retreat, Conference and Outreach Center. We are located in beautiful, rural Steinsville, PA. (about 20 miles west of Allentown) This wonderful, peaceful 7-plus acre facility includes a unique 36-room Inn built in 1832. We call this THE INN OF HOPE-a place dedicated to make Christ known as our only Hope for time and eternity.

“May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13


We provide low-cost facilities for Internationals, students, missionaries, pastors, Christian workers, church groups, individuals and families to hold retreats, conferences, training seminars, Bible studies, family reunions and picnics.

The peaceful environment at SPADE allows groups to focus on the spiritual things by eliminating outside distractions. This is a perfect place for experiencing God, walking on our meditation path through our gardens and livestock areas towards the Blue Mountains behind the property, or just taking time to rest, relax, refresh and enjoy the beauty and majesty of God’s creation.
