BMI Bed and BreakfastThe BMI Oasis is a service of Bridge Ministries, Inc., which has been helping people find and fulfill their God-given life calling since 1998.

The Oasis is the result of a 20-year vision to create a place for people, especially Christian leaders, to grow in their love for God and to refocus their life-calling.

We seek to show forth the graciousness and hospitality that was displayed by Christ himself.

The mission of the Oasis is to serve Pastors, Missionaries, and Christian leaders, helping them to revitalize their walk with God, refocus their calling in ministry, and renew their marital connection. See “Retreat Options” above to find the best way for investing your time with us.

Nearby activities include: Biking, Golfing (5 Championship Courses),  the Gilmore Car Museum, the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, downhill and cross-country Skiing, the Kalamazoo Air Zoo, Fine and Casual Dining, Sailing/Boating, etc.
