"This is Heaven on Earth.  It's about all I can say.  I had relatives that have stayed here over the years and ranted and I am just mad at myself for not coming sooner.  I am grateful too that I was able to see Marv shortly before he crossed over to the Lord.  Please keep his soul in this place as much as possible."

The Shack Merges with Grace Adventures

As Marv Deur, founder of The Shack, looked at ministries he felt would continue the legacy of The Shack, he was looking for an organization with a solid Board of Directors, a proven track record of ministry, and a clear vision for the future. After much thought and prayer, he determined that Grace Adventures best fit his vision for The Shack. We are blessed and humbled that Marv has entrusted this ministry to us.  As Marv stated, “The Shack is not changing ownership, it’s changing stewardship.  It has always been the Lord’s.”
