“Let those who are taught the Word share all good things with those who teach” (Galatians 6:6). Quite often, couples in ministry become so involved in giving to others that their personal lives are neglected. They miss out on the first part of the biblical principle found in Matthew 10:8, “Freely you have received, freely give.” A Galatians 6:6 Retreat is a time of personal renewal and encouragement for ministry couples…a time to “freely receive” God’s good things for your marriage, family, and ministry. Galatians 6:6 Retreats are 3-day/2-night retreats for pastoral couples in full-time ministry. They are held in various locations in the United States and overseas through strategic partnerships. The retreat, accommodations, meals, and all materials are a gift from these partners. All you have to do is get to a retreat! More than 15,000 ministry couples from around the world have participated in these life-changing, marriage-enriching, ministry-impacting retreats! Upcoming retreats:

  • Orlando, FL - November 16-18, 2023
  • Austin, TX - December 3-5, 2023
  • Crandall, GA - January 25-27, 2024

What Recipients are Saying about this Scholarship

"A new journey has begun for us! We learned to REALLY be “doers” of His Word, and NOT just “hearers”! We learned HOW to “Do the Book”! Thank you!"

Pastor’s wife from CT -

"The first night God began to heal my soul. I was hurting and didn’t realize it. I was hurt by my own spouse. I had been avoiding my own pain. We experienced what it was like to actually “confess and forgive” one another! We left the incredible retreat feeling poured into, spoiled, and UNITED as a couple!"

Pastor from Illinois -

"Prior to coming to the retreat, I was planning to call it quits with my marriage. I arrived reluctantly to the conference. The Lord began working in my life. I have been to many marriage conferences and they have all been the same. This marriage retreat was “holistic”! It touched so many aspects of our lives and I have a renewed hope for our marriage and love for my spouse! This is the first time in 30 years of ministry that someone has invested in us!"

Pastor’s wife from Texas -

"We were in a dark and desperate place in our marriage when we arrived. God has intervened and transformed our relationship! Thank you to the presenters for leading by example and sharing your own vulnerable stories and being real with us! This marriage retreat has saved our marriage and family! We will never be the same!
