Prompt Pay Discount

If your bill is paid in full prior to or during your retreat, you will receive a 5% “prompt pay” discount on the retreat fees. If your bill is paid in full within 30 days of the end of your retreat, you will receive 3% discount on the retreat fees.


Insurance

Since our counselors are licensed, a portion of your counseling fees may be covered by health insurance; please contact us for details. We have also found that quite often our guest’s church, denomination, or mission board has funds available to pay all or part of the remaining cost.


Scholarships

Due to the generosity of numerous supporters who do not want to see any pastor or missionary prevented from coming to Alongside solely because of cost, we offer need-based scholarships which are available from our scholarship fund. These scholarships are awarded according to your income bracket and are based upon fund availability.


Transportation

Fees for transportation to/from the airport is $35 each way for the Kalamazoo Airport (code: AZO) and $50 each way for the Grand Rapids Airport (code: GRR).
