Cost:

  • We hope that churches will see the need to send their Pastor and his wife beyond what their normal vacation time may be.
  • Our heart’s desire is to see as many Pastoral Couples as possible attend. If a church cannot afford to send their Pastor at the full price of $405 they can pay the lesser amount shown. We will try to make your attendance possible through sponsorship.
  • $405 (full price)
  • $255 (sponsored price) is the lowest price which gives you the full retreat. We will find a sponsorship for the difference. This is only available as donations come in based on a first come first serve basis and only for Pastors of churches of like faith and practice.

All the above pay levels include:

  • 2 Nights in the four-star Hilton Convention Center Hotel
  • Catered Banquet Dinner
  • Breakfast one day (Tuesday or Wednesday)
  • Lunch one day (Tuesday or Wednesday)
  • Sessions specific to the needs Pastors and their wives face.
  • Snack Bag
  • Great fellowship with other ministry couples
  • A relaxed time alone with your sweetheart.

  • The sponsored $255 option is only available as donated sponsorships come in based on a first come first serve basis and will no longer be available after November 4, 2019.
