Each RD Retreat is kept to a small size so we can keep it personal and intentional. You will also have plenty of time to rest, play, and explore the area.

Your Private Suite

at River Spring Lodge

Enjoy tranquil views of the surrounding woodland, complemented by elegant décor and upscale finishes. Each room features leather furniture, a luxury hotel mattress, firm and soft bed pillows, a heated ceramic bathroom floor, and a 40″ Smart TV.

Your Private Suite

at Whispering Willows Bed & Breakfast

Purposefully designed for you to take time to reflect as you enjoy the expansive grounds complemented by southern charm. Each room features large windows warming the space with natural light, a cozy bed with firm and soft pillows, breakfast nook, and a personal balcony.



Because ministry is exhausting! You’re constantly pouring out. We want to help you build a healthy rhythm of rest while experiencing it firsthand.


Because the people we lead deserve our best! Enjoying unhurried time with God will recover your strength and restore freshness to your calling.


Because leading people well requires knowing where you are going! Get out of the rut as you receive clarity and perspective to move forward with intentionality.

Your Experience

In-between one-on-one coaching sessions, spend your free time enjoying some of the local spots and hidden gems. Choose to stick around the expansive grounds and enjoy unhurried time with Jesus, your spouse, and yourself.

What Does it Cost?

What would it look like to enter your next season rejuvenated and re-envisioned with purpose? You were called and equipped by God to build The Kingdom. Is there a price tag too high for clarity and direction to move forward with intentionality?


Meet your guides

John and Becci Wood know that leading in ministry can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling. But let’s face it – ministry is also very challenging, strenuous, and demanding. With over 35 years of experience building their marriage, family, and the Church, they are the ultimate coaches to help you thrive, not merely survive, in your life and ministry.

What Are You Waiting For?

I had the wonderful blessing to experience a retreat led by John & Becci. They were able to help me reconnect with God and the time was set up in such a way that my wife and I left spiritually renewed, reconnected to each other and physically refreshed.

Chris & Sharon

John & Becci have invested in our marriage and ministry consistently over the last 20 years. I dare to say the wisdom they have shared and the insights we have gleaned have contributed greatly to our longevity. They have passion to see people in ministry not just survive, but to thrive.
