The Backstory of The Reserve

The Exchange Collaborative was formed as a 501c3 nonprofit to help Leaders and Pastors (and actually all those involved) to get help after a fall. Better still, to help prevent a fall. When a person has fallen, we are here to guide in actually falling "all the way" as has become the phrase we continually use in our podcast, The Rise After the Fall. This looks like, full admission and repentance so a turn around through wholeness is possible. The frequency of burn out, poor decisions or moral failures is alarming and seems to be increasing for Pastors. We don't know if it was the additional pressure the pandemic placed on pastors and their families, but whatever it was, it's not acceptable and we have given the rest of our lives to become a part of the process of emotional and spiritual healing and wholeness.

Our podcast has been shared and found by those in need and we have even developed a lead team to be the watchmen and watch-women for those headed in the wrong direction and/or already in the middle of a mess. As men and women reach out to us, we keep the Director of Journey to Wholeness, Becky Alcantar, too busy flying all over the country to do intensives for couples and individuals and even entire church staffs.

Then we were reminded of a 25 year old vision of having a retreat center for pastors to come to for refreshing. We always thought it would be Sonny's family ranch on the border of Montana and Wyoming but the very day their family signed closing documents to sell the ranch, we were signing closing documents for The Exchange Collaborative to purchase a 20 acres with 5 properties in pristine condition in North Carolina. Now, we are able to host people in Green Bay, North Carolina, or in their area of the country when they are willing to bring us in. 

This property is already being financially supported by authors, business owners, pastors and generous people in NC and the nation as they believe in this mission to leaders and pastors specifically.  


Sonny Hennessy, owner of The Exchange Design, renovates another unique property and this time on a sprawling 20 acre oasis with boutique touches for a Carolina Caribbean experience.

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

Adam & Abbe Doll bring their vast professional construction and restoration experience to be the renovators of the entire property.  Journey to Wholeness graduates themselves, they lean on the healing they have received after their own tragic life experiences to be able to stay the course and serve as full time missionaries at The Reserve.
