The Story of The Reserve


The Exchange Collaborative was formed as a 501c3 not for profit organization by Shawn and Sonny Hennessy to help Leaders and their families before, during, or after a crisis. 

The frequency of burn out and moral failure is alarming and seems to be increasing. It's suspected the additional pressure the pandemic placed on leaders or pastors may be to blame. However, it's an unacceptable epidemic to Shawn and Sonny and their Journey to Wholeness Program Directors who have given their lives to the process of emotional and spiritual restoration.

The Rise After the Fall Podcast has steadily climbed as a resource for thousands of Leaders and has been shared and found by those in need who often reach out to the Hennessy's for help. 

The Reserve property is financially supported by authors, churches and generous people around the nation who believe in crisis intervention and burn out prevention.



Shawn and Sonny purchased the property through their Non-Profit, The Exchange Collaborative, fall of 2022.
