In appreciation and support of your military service to our country, we are pleased to invite you to our Military Chaplain Retreat at The Cove in Asheville, North Carolina. The event is open to active-duty military chaplains as well as National Guard and reservist chaplains. The retreat begins with dinner on Monday and ends following the mid-morning session on Thursday.
If you have attended in the past and experienced God’s blessing, we hope you can join us again. But whether you have attended or not, we ask you to share this opportunity with other chaplains and spouses who may just need a special time away to experience God’s refreshment and encouragement!
Dress for this event is casual. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes for walking.
To better serve those who attend, please note The Cove is an adult only facility and cannot accommodate infants, children or pets.
