What is a Cove Pastor Renewal Retreat?

Did you know that 1,500 pastors leave the ministry each month?

Our pastors give so much time and energy to our church communities, we wanted to find a way to give back. Through the Pastor Renewal Project at The Cove, our donors help provide opportunities for pastors to be rejuvenated for their continuing work in the Kingdom.

Pastor Renewal Retreats offer free meals and lodging (based on availability) for those actively serving in pastoral ministry. Each retreat provides the opportunity to interact with peers and receive insight, instruction, and best practices from experienced Christian leaders.

“Felt God’s presence encouraging and infusing me with hope in spite of difficulties experienced this past year.  I knew Jesus was with us and would continue to see us through victoriously, bringing much fruit.”

“I am seriously thinking differently about our church and the opportunities, not obstacles, that lay before us.”
