It's a challenge to plan and execute your own events, be it a leader's retreat, men's weekend, women's getaway, etc. Those heading up the effort are often consumed with maintaining the program, schedule, and other details that make the retreat or event nearly impossible to personally enjoy.
One pastor from Virginia said he had a light bulb moment one day. He and his team had known about Sandy Cove for a while, but never took advantage of their group-friendly programmed events. It's easy to pull together a group of people to attend a programmed event with solid Bible teaching and planned meals—you don't have to do any heavy lifting. Now, instead of being the on-site leaders, he and his team can participate knowing that the staff at Sandy Cove has everything under control.
