Siloam wants to meet the need for missionaries to find refuge and rest, a place to be together as a family, and to be refreshed, renewed and ready for their return to serve the Lord in the region He called them to.

It is a gated village of 14 homes on 33 acres in the heart of North Carolina, between Chapel Hill and Greensboro. Twelve of these homes are for missionaries, two are staff homes. Each of the homes is tastefully decorated. They range an efficiency apartment to a  4 bedroom, 3 bath home.
