Our Background

Bob and Ann Tayloe, along with their best friend, Susan Westfall, developed The Haven Missionary Care Center, a non-profit ministry to active missionaries. Bob and Ann have been associated with Calvary Chapel ministries since 1984, ministering 26 years as members of Calvary Chapel Merritt Island, FL (Pastor Malcolm Wild). Bob was an elder for 24 years and Ann led various Bible studies and worked with discipleship and counseling ministries. Together, Bob and Ann led a home fellowship group. In 2006, Bob and Ann were sent out from Calvary Chapel Merritt Island as missionaries to serve in Nairobi, Kenya. They represented nine U.S. Calvary Chapel pastors whose radio programs were broadcast on the "Biblia Husema Broadcasting" network. Bob and Ann served in Nairobi with the radio ministry for four years. Their experiences as missionaries, and interaction with other missionaries on the field, led them to begin this new ministry of missionary care in northeastern North Carolina. Bob and Ann found a church home at Calvary Chapel Elizabeth City, NC (Pastor John King).

Our Vision

The Haven Missionary Care Center desires to see missionaries refreshed and restored to their full potential of ministry on the field of their calling for the glory of God and the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe: A Refreshed Missionary is an Effective Missionary

Our Mission

The Haven Missionary Care Center offers comfortable accommodations in a rural setting where Christian missionaries will find a haven of rest for the soul, refreshment for the body, and renewal for the spirit. To this end, we offer biblical counseling and debrief upon request. The Haven staff purposes to maintain a Christ-centered atmosphere to allow for the work of the Holy Spirit in each of our missionary guests. Visits, which provide time to focus on the Lord, may last as few as two days or as many as fourteen days.

Our Objectives

To encourage missionaries on sabbatical, home assignment, furlough or deputation to take time to have ALL their basic needs met: physical, spiritual, and emotional. To inspire individuals, churches, and mission organizations to see their missionaries as an extension of themselves to the world.
