What is a Servicemen's Home?

A Servicemen's Home is both a church and a home away from home for military personnel where they will be welcome and wanted at all hours of the day and night, seven days a week.

It is a place where military personnel can receive spiritual help including devotions any evening (except on scheduled service nights); that is, Bible reading, question and answer sessions, teaching and prayer.

It is a place to reach souls for the Lord Jesus Christ and for the Home to be a place of spiritual retreat for the servicemen and women who are displaced from their own family: it truly is a Christian Home away from Home.

Servicemen's "Homes away from home" are not a new idea. They are a tried and proven means of reaching servicemen and women for Christ for more than 50 years now.1


As one person put it - fellowship, fellowship, fellowship, that is the key to, and the purpose of, a servicemen's home and church. To fellowship means to join together.

We're not offering the fellowship of the world.

The fellowship of Christ and of a Christian character should be the by-word of all servicemen's homes and churches. We should realize that everyone wishes to be a part. Everyone wishes to have friends, people with whom they can communicate. They search for a common denominator in their lives. Christ is this common denominator for a Christian servicemen's home.

Many men and women today who know Christ, who are working for Christ in various calls of the ministry, trace their beginnings to Servicemen's Homes.2
