Vision & History of the Prospect Valley Ministry

There is a separate entity inspired by the property, Prospect Valley Hospitality, Inc., a Colorado Non-Profit which aids Christian Missionaries in funding residential missionary housing while in Colorado for business or sabbatical.

The ministry is the realization of the founder Kimary Marchese. It was her longing and dream to have a home large enough to accommodate her gift of hospitality and merge it with her desire to serve missionaries. She says, “A lot of people would say I must have had a lot of faith to buy the property but truthfully I had only a little faith when I bought the place and NOW I have a Lot of Faith!”.

The decades old vision of a home of hospitality for short-term missionary visits became a reality in August of 2001. The search began and a charming 1872 property with old west ambiance was found.

Many renovations were required to see the vision come to life. After 9-11 caused the original bank to back out, a financial backer was located who had one big requirement. He required that multi-year renovations be completed in one year. The challenge was accepted and miraculously met.

The conversion of the property took many volunteers. They came at just the time a critical need revealed itself. As the charming restoration took shape it drew the positive attention of the community as the new ministry came to life. The property transformed into a beautiful garden setting.

The property has a colorful history including a tavern, a grocery store and beauty shop, a gas station and possibly a Lookout Mountain Stagecoach Stop.

The first missionaries arrived from Uganda, Africa before the renovations were completed. They stayed in the main house with the founder. Then a parade of nations from all over the world followed and continues today.

The Mission of Prospect Valley Hospitality is to provide inter-denominational, supportive, loving, comfortable accommodations free or under market value, to Christian, non-profit workers visiting the greater Denver, Colorado region in the U.S.A.

People devoting themselves to benevolent work, who need short term housing, do not have to sign leases or devote precious resources to buying furnishings.  They step into this unit equipped with daily necessities and concentrate on the great things they accomplish across the globe.

In recent years we’ve hosted a family who made medical clinics for indigent people in Mexico, a family who works with the youth of Israel feeling the strain of compulsory military straight out of high school, people from Prague, Czech Republic and have a booking from Columbia for people who work with children rescued from sex trafficking.

The great service of PVH could not be offered without the support of our volunteers, prayer partners and financial contributors.  We’d love to have you be part of the exciting things being done at Prospect Valley Hospitality.
