In 2011 a new ministry evolved for CMU called "Chuck's House.” After founder and director Chuck Conner passed away, his old home - located on the family farm - was turned into a bunkhouse. Now, CMU is able to host mission teams who come to serve the surrounding area (churches and ministries) through various service projects. Chuck’s House is also the site of worship workshops for student praise bands. These are conducted by Chuck III and some of the talented musicians and worship leaders he works with in the Central Alabama area. We are located in Hope Hull, Alabama.
Hope Hull, Alabama is where Christian Missions Unlimited is based. The goal of Chuck's House is to give mission teams an affordable yet impactful alternative to international mission trips. Besides, it is Biblical for us to minister to those in our back yard as well as those in other countries.
The fee for use of the bunkhouse is $25 per person, per night for the first 16 people and $15 per person, per night for any additional people. A $500 nonrefundable deposit is due at the time of booking or 3 months prior to your arrival date.
CMU partners with several ministries in the area. We provide assistance to Common Ground ministries, helping around their annex as well as their surrounding properties. This includes working with children in the community. Chuck’s House teams also work with House-to-House which is a ministry spawned out of Common Ground. The majority of this work involves the construction and restoration of houses in the community. Another ministry we assist is Adullam House, which is a safe haven for children of incarcerated parents. In addition, CMU is currently helping local churches and members of the community with service projects and meeting physical needs.
We do not provide any food. There is a fully furnished kitchen available. Most teams will bring a kitchen crew with them and bring food or shop locally upon arrival. There are also two charcoal grills available for your use.
The home of Chuck Conner, the founder of Christian Missions Unlimited, has been turned into a bunkhouse that sleeps 16. In addition, there is a mobile home on-site that sleeps 6. If your team has more members, some can sleep in sleeping bags.
