The Center with god’s purpose

Ravencrest Chalet. The Swiss-style chalet was built in the winter of 1962-63 and was a private home as well as a well-known resort.

A Christian family purchased Ravencrest Chalet from the original owner in 1972 and operated it as a restaurant and lodge while looking for the opportunity to convert it into a Christian center.

That opportunity came when a contact was made with Major Ian Thomas. The days that followed set into motion the acquisition of the property and so expanded the international ministry of Torchbearers of the Capernwray Missionary Fellowship.

The "Inn with an Old World Charm" became the "Center with God's Purpose."
