We Still Do

A Pastor and Wife Marriage Conference
Oct. 12-14, 2017
Fort Caswell
Oak Island, N.C.

Juggling the demands of ministry can be completely overwhelming.

Pastors must balance marriage, family and ministry, as well as their own spiritual, physical and emotional health. It’s no wonder we are experiencing so many burnouts and drop outs in ministry. If we don't pull away for rest and refreshment, we will likely fall apart.

The “We Still Do” marriage getaway is designed to give pastors and their spouses an opportunity to experience the rest and refreshment they need. The weekend getaway includes times of worship, fun, laughter and challenging teaching. Free time is also built into the schedule for couples to walk on the beach or rock on the porch in the beautiful setting of Oak Island.

Hundreds of ministry couples have attended this event over the past eight years, with many saying later that it was instrumental in saving their marriage or ministry or both.

Cost: $99 per couple (Includes accommodations and all meals)
