Instruction in the Word... Inspiration in Fellowship
Founding Director and Wife
Huntersfield is scenically nestled near the top of Huntersfield mountain where God has established a place of learning and rest. Huntersfield Christian Training Center (HCTC) was started over 40 years ago by current Founding Director Yvonne Shafer and her late husband, Rev. Roger H. Shafer (1937-2011) and continues to be a haven of rest and refreshment for all who make the trip.
In Roger's Own Words: “I thank God for the privilege of living at Huntersfield Christian Training Center.What a provision!What a possession…precious life-giving and life-sustaining property…a divine gift from God to be used to bless our world.This place with its marvelous location is an amazing expression of God’s loving-kindness.We have a responsibility…to further His kingdom in our day.Let us rejoice for the great gift of life we have in this place.Keep on Keeping On!”
HCTC is a year-round Bible study and retreat Center located in the beautiful northern Catskill Mountains of New York State. With 570 acres of wooded land and open meadows, HCTC offers a beautiful setting for serious Bible study, group retreats, individual and family rest and relaxation.
A non-discriminating not-for-profit organization
With an emphasis on Biblical instruction and practical application, Huntersfield offers a place for spiritual growth and prayer. Your spirit will be stirred not only by the depth of teaching but also by the breadth of the beautiful vistas visible from its elevated location. Previous attendees and missionaries who have been fortunate to have traveled the world have commented on the special beauty and serenity that is at Huntersfield.
