A 5-Day Marriage Retreat for Ministry Leaders

Rest and Renewal for
Every Ministry Leader's Marriage

Ministry can run at an unsustainable pace, leaving leaders feeling burnt out, isolated, and disillusioned. We believe every ministry leader needs a safe place to receive care for their soul, find rest, and invest in their marriage.

That’s why we created the Ministry Leader R&R – to provide a marriage shelter for our ministry leaders around the globe for the sustainable advancement of the Kingdom of God.

About the Retreat

Retreat Description

Jesus came so that we may have life, and life abundantly. Ministry leaders give their lives in service to others so they may hear and experience this good news. And yet, it often comes at a paradoxical cost to their own self care, relationships, and general flourishing.

At a Ministry Leader R&R, you and your spouse will experience a week away from your day-to-day routine and will have the opportunity to unplug and be served in a safe environment, so that you can truly focus on each other. Over the course of the week, you’ll have the opportunity to rest, play, reconnect and have experiences that nourish your soul and strengthen your relationship with God and your spouse. Our hope is that you leave refreshed, energized, encouraged, and with a renewed invitation to thrive in your God-given calling.


$150 per couple (ALL APPLICABLE TAXES INCLUDED)
Includes lodging, meals, and programming
