We do four things:

We PROVIDE, TEACH, RESOURCE and offer PLACES for the care of souls of leaders in ministry and the marketplace.

We PROVIDE Soul Care

Soul Care is care for the whole person; your past, present and future, dreams, desires, brokenness and giftedness. Soul Care is about your wellbeing. Perhaps the very best part of what we do is the privilege to companion others in their personal journey. Potter's Inn continues to provide excellent care for those who come to our door. Integrating our values of intimacy, beauty and adventure, we serve as guides for the soul while putting attention to spiritual, physical and emotional aspects of each person's story.

We TEACH Soul Care

It's one thing to be cared for and yet another to teach others how to care for the their own soul and others. Potter's Inn staff have giftedness and passion to teach from our own experiences. Through one-day seminars, week-long group learning experiences and our 2-year in-depth Institute journey, we seek to equip others with the tools and perspective necessary to care for the what is most important – you!

We RESOURCE Soul Care    When Stephen and Gwen Smith, Founders of Potter's Inn, have worked hard to develop and publish written and online resources that help supplement the Soul Care process. Offering their own testimony and the stories of many others, these books, guides and online course materials are a treasure of wisdom for the journey!

I am a witness and a recipient of the transformational work of Potter’s Inn!
I have witnessed the deep work of the soul that people are afforded through Potter’s Inn. Work that is desperately needed by leaders and followers in any vocational domain. Work the fruit of which will endure. Work that is not only for followers of Jesus, but by extension for our culture at large, a culture that is longing to see the true evidence of a world of goodness and beauty. A world into which Potter’s Inn invites anyone who would dare risk discovering the life everlasting.

We offer PLACES for Soul Care

There is something very meaningful about the place in which we care for our souls. Beauty, privacy and comfort are important factors that can help our souls feel safe and come alive. We host our Soul Care Institute and other retreats at various retreat centers around the United States. We can also recommend places for you to go for private getaways on your own.
