Q: The property itself, as shown on the site, is in a stunning natural setting. Can you tell us a little about its history and how it came to be the location for your ministry?
Paul: WSS is located in south central Pennsylvania, in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains near the small town of Manns Choice.
The original hotel was built in 1884 and operated as an elegant country resort until 1978. At that time, the OCF was looking for a property to establish a conference center on the East Coast within easy driving distance of the Washington, D.C. area.
The OCF purchased the property (approximately 500 acres at that time) in 1978 and has been operating White Sulphur Springs as a ministry ever since. Over the years, the Lord has blessed the ministry and given us the ability to add almost 600 additional acres and build a new hotel facility – the Heritage House, completed in 2011.
