A Hospitality Network: Candle In the Window

Ever thought it would be cool if believers across the country (or the world!) were somehow connected to each other to offer and receive Biblical hospitality in the way God intended? What if your next vacation you were able to stay in other believer’s homes rather than strange hotels? What if you were able to meet new people from across the country while sharing a meal around your own table?

I’ve dreamed of such things existing, but now that dream has become a reality. I’m so excited to share with you a new resource for believers who are passionate about hospitality…

A Candle In the Window

A Candle in the Window Hospitality Network is a growing network/ database of Christian households who delight in hospitality. Members enjoy conversational dinners and/or overnight stays for FREE in the homes of other members.

If you’re passionate about hospitality (like us!) or looking at more affordable accomidation options for your next road trip, you should check out the website. One year’s membership is just $49 – less than half of the typical price of a hotel room!

But there’s an even better deal available for my readers –
The Bowen Family sent me an introductory discount code for my readers to get a one year membership for $30 or a two year membership for just $50!
Here are the details:

  1. Visit  www.acandleinthewindow.com
  2. Click ‘join us’
  3. Choose ‘1 year’ or ‘2 year’, and click ‘next’ (the discount will be applied on the next page)
  4. At the bottom of the next page, type into the discount code box:
    FOUNDERS 1 YEAR or  FOUNDERS 2 YEAR  (case sensitive and spaces)
  5. The discount will be automatically applied.

Or, if you are the first person to sign up in your state, you can become a charter member and have lifetime membership for free (that’s what Jeremy and I did!). Missionaries are free, too. Check out their website to learn more about this family’s wonderful vision for encouraging hospitality.

Update 4/7/2012. Membership is now just $30 for 1 year/ $50 for 2 years, no discount codes needed!

“Practice hospitality.”  Romans 12:13
“The Greek word “dioko” translates “strive for, actively pursue; promote and aspire to hospitality. We are to think about it, prepare for it, pray about it, and seek opportunities to do it… Romans 12 teaches that all Christians are to pursue the practice of hospitality.” –Alexander Strauch

    I know this post is many years old. Do you know if that network is still active, and have you used it?

      Hey Maggie,

      The network is still active although we have not used it recently.

    What a wonderful thing! But seeing as I no longer have a guest room, I guess we'll have to wait a while 🙂
