Who We AreCapernaum Inn is a peaceful and quiet retreat for Christian Pastors and Church Leaders who desire a place to get into the presence of God by themselves, with their families or with others in the Body of Christ.
About Our Founder Jim Way served as Executive Director of Renewed Life Ministries for twenty-four years. Renewed Life Ministries involved over five-hundred Churches from Palm Beach County through Indian River County in various outreaches, conferences, leadership meetings, etc. Fourteen Senior Pastors served on Renewed Life Ministries Board, representing close to forty-thousand parishioners on the east coast of Florida. Jim was a Management Consultant to National Manufacturing Industries for twenty-five years before he was called to full-time ministry.

1982-Renewed Life Ministries was loosely formed to sponsor yearly mens retreats at Dunklin Memorial Camp, a mens recovery camp located west of Stuart, FL 1990-The Business, Civic, and Ministry Coalition in Saint Lucie County was community.1995-Renewed Life Ministries embraced and eventually absorbed into the fold Capernaum Ministries (formerly called Visitation House)2000 through 2001-After years of presenting hundreds of conferences, retreats, and outreaches, the Renewed Life Ministries Board concluded that there was a great need for a place for leadership to gather as a contemplative laboratory for leaders to seek the Lords direction to meet the cultural dynamics of the 21st century. Knowing that land was not available on the east coast of Florida, our Executive Director and a small team moved to Central Florida to seek an ideal location. Capernaum Properties, Inc. was formed to build homes and provide income while a new location was researched. In the meantime, a Foundation presented a substantial donation to build Capernaum Inn.
Summer of 2009-Another substantial donation was given for a beautiful piece of property on Lake Pierce (approximately 20-acres) with six hundred feet of lakefront. The property has eight cabins, sixteen bedrooms, a two bedroom guest house, and is fully equipped with rooms for conferences, and meetings, including dining facilities.
March 1, 2010-Capernaum Ministries opened Capernaum Inn, a Pastors Retreat and Conference Center.

Impacting Pastors Lives I was a very hurt Pastor, having experienced profound disappointment in many levels for many years. I came to Capernaum for rest and to pray and work on a book Ive been writing. I cant begin to tell you how this place and the staff ministered to me during my stay. This is a place of restoration. God bless you Jim & Sherry. - Al Kempa
I truly thank God for the vision and the ministry of Capernaum Ministries. This is by far on of the best experiences Ive had in my life. I can truly say that I am leaving Capernaum Inn feeling much more rested, refreshed, and rejuvenated. I will surely be back again. This sabbatical was needed for me tocontinue on in my ministry. - Love, God Bless - Rev. Eric Reaves, Pastor- The Bible Believing Church
