Church Staff Retreats at The Cove in August

Is a 2-Day Church Staff Retreat at The Cove for you?

If you answer yes to any of the questions below, then pack your bags and get away to a place where you can focus on the needs of your church and its shepherd.

• Would you like to get away for two days and focus on your ministry vision without the interruptions that occur in daily life?

• Would you like to “understand” the needs of your flock better?

• Would you like to learn how to communicate more effectively?

• Is your church in conflict?

• Is your “tank” running low when everyone is looking to you to spiritually fill their “tanks”?

• Would you like to transform your ministry?

Our two-day retreats are designed for church ministry staff and para-church ministry teams.  The retreats will feature solid inspirational biblical teaching by experienced ministry leaders (see your fantastic choices below) with time and space created for individual ministry teams to meet on their own for strategic planning, prayer, group interaction and reflection.
