About Us

Several years ago a dream began in the hearts of many individuals within the Church of God to provide housing, ministry, and care to widows. It was not an original idea, since Jesus commanded it in Scripture.

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the father is this; To care for the fatherless and the widows in their affliction...James 1:27, KJV

However, as in most works of God, men and women must answer the call. We have answered. The result is the beautiful Iris B. Vest Widows Ministry Center. The Center is located on the campus of the Smoky Mountain Children's Home in Sevierville, Tennessee. This facility is more about ministry than housing or care. The widows who make the Center their home are part of a campus of children who need mentoring and spiritual nurturing.

The Center will house the office of the International Ministry to Widows. This new ministry will initiate many unique ministries of care and service to widows who live in the Center, throughout America, and around the world.

While ministry is priority one, the beautiful facility and living accommodations are without peer.

The Center is a spacious facility totaling over 40,000 square feet of living space. An attractive design includes many wonderful spacious common areas and 42 living suites. Each one-bedroom suite includes a private bathroom, mini-kitchenette with cabinetry, sink, apartment size refrigerator and stove, living room, bedroom, and balcony. Every apartment has approximately 525 square feet of space. Other features include carpeting and individually controlled heating and air conditioning.
