Our Mission

Mission Statement

The mission of the Nazarene Well House is to provide temporary housing accommodations and moral, and spiritual support when requested, to medical treatment recipients and their families visiting the world famous Mayo Clinic and its hospitals in Rochester, MN. We strive to be more than just basic lodging, but rather a place of hospitality, ministry, and overall wellness – both physical and spiritual.


The Nazarene Well House has been recognized by the U.S. Government as a non-profit
501(c)(3) organization. The NWH has also been recognized by the General Church as a Nazarene Compassionate Ministry.

Key Passage For The NWH Ministry:

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in,
I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me,
I was in prison and you came to visit me.
“Then the righteous will answer him,
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
or thirsty and give you something to drink?
When did we see you a stranger and invite you in,
or needing clothes and clothe you?
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply,
‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did
for one of the least of these brothers of mine,
you did for me.’
Matthew 25:35-40
