In the past, we had Serve901 groups sleep at various churches around town who were willing to host us. We were grateful to those churches, but we had a vision to provide greater hospitality to those coming to serve and learn about our city. The Bunkhouse is the product of that vision. The Bunkhouse is 7,000 square feet in the basement of the Living Hope Vollintine Evergreen Church

Sleeping Arrangements

There are 114 Twin Size bunk beds between 6 bunk rooms in two wings of the basement. Each wing has 3 bunk rooms + 1 shower room. Each bunk room has between 12 beds to 24 beds. All guests are required to bring their own bedding, pillows, towels and toiletries.

Eating & Hanging Arrangements

There's a common area / meeting space within the bunkhouse. It's equipped with 2 microwaves, a full size fridge and freezer and sink. Additionally, we have coffee pots, crock pots, convection ovens, electric hot plates, and griddles for cooking. There's a large island that is great for serving meals. We have wifi in our space & a wrap-around countertop bar that is great for students who might have computer work. There are many couches to hang out in this space. 60" smart tv w/ access to Spotify, YouTube, and Netflix.

Meeting Spaces

We've got access to other spaces at the church. The gymtuary is what we call the multipurpose room that is also used as a sanctuary on Sundays for Living Hope. Jazzercise and dance companies also use this space in the evenings. There is also a chapel accessible through one wing of the Bunkhouse that can seat up to 125-150 people. The availability of the other spaces in the church are subject to LHVE Building Calendar.
