The Main House was gifted to the program as a place where young leaders could find God and be equipped for ministry. It is the training centre, student dorm, worship centre, and home base for the 8 months of Lifeteams School of Youth Outreach.

Looking for a quiet space to connect with God?
Our prayer cabin is here for you. Located on our Lifehouse property just behind the mainhouse, the prayer cabin is a place to spend time alone with God. It can be booked for an afternoon of prayer or for a few of days if that’s what you’re in need of.
The cabin has been dedicated in it’s use to spiritual retreats and accommodates one to two people comfortably. It can sleep 2, in a sleeping loft (*please bring your own queen size bedding), and contains a small lounge area, a kitchenette with small fridge, and bathroom facilities.
While on retreat you are welcome to make use of the many trails on and around our 20 acre property which overlooks the Sumas prairie.
The Prayer Cabin is user maintained and user funded. We are committed to having the Prayer Cabin available free of charge so those with limited finances can still access the unique opportunity for rest and restoration. We ask that each user simply consider what they can afford to give, within their means, to help with the costs and upkeep of this special place. Donations over $50.00 are income tax receipt-able and can be left in the donation box at the cabin or done online through the “Donate” button at the bottom of this webpage.
To inquire about rentals please complete the form below. You will generally receive a confirmation within 48 hours (weekdays). Our offices are not open on the weekend so please plan ahead. Once you receive your confirmation, simply make your way to the Lifeteams house and find the prayer cabin tucked just behind. The door will be unlocked so walk right in. In the kitchenette, a sink, microwave, tea kettle, small fridge and limited utensils and plates are available to make your stay more comfortable. We would ask that you not bring your pet as it will make it impossible for those with allergies to be comfortable in the future.
Please note that we would ask you to be out of the cabin by 9:00 a.m. on the day you are leaving and arrive no sooner than 10:00 a.m. If you would like to leave later in the day, please book for that full day as well, to avoid overlap.
Since we desire to make the Prayer Cabin available to as many people as possible we would ask that you not book more than 4 consecutive days, or more than 6 days in a 30-day period.
May you find this place of solitude a welcome break in the busyness of life.
PLEASE NOTE: From November until April there is no running water in the prayer cabin.
WHAT IS A
The Lifeteams Conversation Trail invites you and a friend into a unique relationship building experience. Nestled into the side of the mountain, participants discover the beauty of nature together, while sharing thoughts and ideas in a non-threatening, creative way. The pathway winds through 8 different stations providing a bit of a “treasure hunt” feel as you search together for the small wooden boxes that contain conversation prompts. The prompts each encourage awareness of the surrounding natural world, while inviting exploration of internal landscapes as well.
Before beginning down the trail, you and your trail buddy can choose from two levels of conversations based on what fits your relationship. Laminated prompt cards for both levels are tucked within a mail box on a post at each station.
Relationship Building Prompts: Exploring the thoughts and traits that are part of who we are. (Green prompts)
Faith Shaping Prompts: Exploring the experiences and ideas that have shaped us and are shaping our faith. (Blue prompts)
1. a talk, especially an informal one, between two or more people, in which thoughts and ideas are exchanged.
