“The church is Christ existing as community.”

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The Blackburn House is a missional program of Blackburn’s Chapel United Methodist Church. The program invites disciples of Jesus from different backgrounds and stages of life to live in intentional Christian community.
The residents of The Blackburn House live together in the church’s lovely parsonage that sits near the banks of the New River on a gorgeous acre of land with a garden. Located in the heart of the beautiful and quiet rural mountain neighborhood of Todd, NC, the church and parsonage provide a unique context for reflection, discernment and ministry.
Through commitment to prayer, friendship, and service in Todd the residents of The Blackburn House practice hospitality and reconciliation in ways that are both ordinary and spectacular. The Blackburn House offers an opportunity for residents to develop and deepen their leadership abilities, sense of vocation and ultimately discipleship to Jesus.
