      Is this retreat open to legally married gay couples?

      • Juliamom42

        Gabr I’m going to say no on that one. Billy Graham is a southern baptist evangelist and I don’t think The Cove is going to allow gay couples.

      I’ve been to this and it’s awesone! Wonderful God centered experience and quality time with your spouse. This is at the Billy Graham training center and it’s beautiful. The also have a come early or stay late option which allowed us to do some touring of Asheville on our own. If you have the chance go.

      Military couples on active duty can go to ANY one of the sessions offered at The Cove once per year. It doesn’t have to be the one specifically geared toward military couples. We went to the one by Alex McFarland and LOVED it!!! Your lodging and meals are free too if you sign up soon enough. They have limited lodging on the property, so once that fills up, they waive your fee for the seminar, but you have to pay for your lodging. I HIGHLY recommend it. We plan to go back every year!

      Any idea if they have childcare available? Even if we have to pay. I can’t find that info anywhere.
