Leave nurtured, stay fulfilled

A coupled strength

Our history

Bubba and Cindy Cathy’s vision for a unique couples’ ministry began in the early 1980s. Since then, WinShape Marriage has held fast to powerful programs that prepare, strengthen, and save marriages, to enable couples to realize the beauty of a marriage built to honor God.  

Breathe easy.
We’ve got this.

We know preparing to get away involves a lot of planning, but we hope you’ll leave that to us. Our goal is that you’d relax, focus on your marriage, and reconnect in a way that allows you to grow. We want you to leave WinShape with peace and fulfillment, having deepened your connection with your spouse and with God. Our experienced team makes sure your needs are met through programming, teaching, hospitality and accommodations. Whichever retreat you choose, our prayer is that you’ll:


Leave the hectic world behind and focus on your spouse.


Enjoy each other as you reconnect on a deeper level.


Have a meaningful encounter with God, individually and as a couple.

Healthy space for growth

Most of our programs are hosted at WinShape Retreat, a tranquil setting at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains. WinShape Retreat features beautifully-furnished rooms surrounded by meadows, streams, and forests, providing the perfect backdrop for reflection and renewal.
