Hollis Renewal Center has provides "a time and place apart" for individuals, small groups

and organizations to pause and reflect on their mission. It embodies hospitality and gives guests

the time and space to be transformed from a collection of individuals into a community.


We take very seriously the gifts of time, land, buildings and resources as we use them wisely and care for

their sustainability into the future.  Hollis is a place for prayer and hospitality to provide opportunities for reflection,

learning, and renewal for groups and individuals.

A place to be surprised by God.

Hollis is 153 acres of secluded wooded land located 20 minutes west of downtown Kansas City with facilities

Welcome Statement
The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to God (Psalm 24.1) CSB.

In gratitude to God and in obligation to the Church and to the community, Hollis Renewal Center welcomes all
people regardless of race, religion, color, creed, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation,
