Statistics show that pastors are struggling to keep up with the demands of ministry and as a result neglect their own spiritual health, live in isolation, and experience marital conflict. Left to the never ending expectations and responsibilities many fail in ministry or leave it all together.
But what if there was a way to prevent this pattern? What if pastors were given the opportunity to unplug from the grind of ministry life and retreat to a place of calm, peace, and beauty? What if they were given permission to take off the hat of pastoral ministry and simply be themselves? What is they were allowed to enjoy a week alone with their spouse and focus on their marriage?
The Pastor’s Getaway is designed to be a place of rest and refreshment for those in pastoral ministry. Enjoy a week filled with 4-star dining, exciting outdoor activities, powerful new connections, meaningful marriage exercises, and quiet solitude with your spouse. The Scott River Lodge is the perfect setting to meet all of your needs.
The week will be guided by experienced and biblically focused facilitators who have a heart to see pastors flourish in their lives and ministries. Spend time with other pastoral couples and explore the concepts of marriage, maturity, and margin. Using experiential education and the principles of God’s Word, pastors are given practical tools and methods to ensure that they can continue to cultivate marital health while fostering their own spiritual formation.
The Pastor’s Getaway is a life-changing experience for couples as they disconnect from the daily demands, reconnect with their spouses, and connect themselves to God’s Spirit in one of the most beautiful and unique environments in the country.
