The Blackburn House is an intentional Christian community committed to prayer, friendship, and service in the rural mountain neighborhood of Todd, NC. We believe not only that Jesus is Lord, but that the church can be his faithful bride. As such we are called to practicing hospitality and reconciliation in ways that are both ordinary and spectacular.
Our mission is to seek the peace and prosperity of Todd, NC. This mission comes from Jeremiah 29:7: “seek the peace and prosperity of the [place] to which I have carried you … Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
