Our Background

Bob and Ann Tayloe, along with their best friend, Susan Westfall, developed The Haven Missionary Care Center, a non-profit ministry to active missionaries. Bob and Ann have been associated with Calvary Chapel ministries since 1984, ministering 26 years as members of Calvary Chapel Merritt Island, FL (Pastor Malcolm Wild). Bob was an elder for 24 years and Ann led various Bible studies and worked with discipleship and counseling ministries. Together, Bob and Ann led a home fellowship group. In 2006, Bob and Ann were sent out from Calvary Chapel Merritt Island as missionaries to serve in Nairobi, Kenya. They represented nine U.S. Calvary Chapel pastors whose radio programs were broadcast on the "Biblia Husema Broadcasting" network. Bob and Ann served in Nairobi with the radio ministry for four years. Their experiences as missionaries, and interaction with other missionaries on the field, led them to begin this new ministry of missionary care in northeastern North Carolina. Bob and Ann found a church home at Calvary Chapel Elizabeth City, NC (Pastor John King). Susan has been a faith-supported missionary with various ministries and in various countries for 34 years. She is an ordained chaplain with International Fellowship of Chaplains. In 2006, Susan helped co-found Serve India Ministries where she serves as Director of Operations and as a board member. She also does biblical counseling, crisis intervention and debriefing, and leads Bible studies.

Our Vision

The Haven Missionary Care Center serves missionaries and pastors from all over the world. Our goal is to see each one refreshed and restored to their full potential of ministry for the glory of God. Our motto is "A Refreshed Missionary is an Effective Missionary"

Our Mission

The Haven Missionary Care Center offers comfortable accommodations in a rural setting where Christian missionaries will find a haven of rest for the soul, refreshment for the body, and renewal for the spirit. To this end, we offer biblical counseling and debrief upon request. The Haven staff purposes to maintain a Christ-centered atmosphere to allow for the work of the Holy Spirit in each of our missionary guests. Visits, which provide time to focus on the Lord, may last as few as two days or as many as fourteen days.

Our Objectives

To encourage missionaries on sabbatical, home assignment, furlough, or deputation to take time to have ALL their basic needs met: physical, spiritual, and emotional. To inspire individuals, churches, and mission organizations to see their missionaries as an extension of themselves to the world.
