The marriage retreat “A Weekend of Encouragement!” is shaping up to be an awesome weekend for you and your spouse. We will begin on Friday night, February 4 at 7 pm. in the Springs Ballroom of the DoubleTree by Hilton in Myrtle Beach. This is an Oceanfront ballroom and it is beautiful! The Registration table will open at 6 p.m. for you to check in. Be sure to eat some supper before you join us and we’ll have some coffee and water waiting on you when you arrive. The Praise Team Band from Latta Baptist will be leading us in a time of singing praise, just as we are instructed to in scripture. Dr. Bob Weathers will lead us in Session 1 and we’ll conclude the night by 9 p.m.

On Saturday morning, you can eat breakfast at the hotel, or one of the many restaurants in the area. We’ll have a Continental Breakfast in the Conference Room along with Coffee and Water. The second session will begin at 9 a.m. and we’ll break for lunch around 11:30 a.m. The final session will begin around 1:30 pm and we’ll end around 3:30 p.m. for you to have a ‘Date Night’.

You are encouraged to stay over and enjoy some time together as husband and wife. You are also invited to join us for worship on Sunday at First Baptist Church in Shallotte, N.C. where Dr. Weathers is the pastor.

As you invest in various things in life, invest in your marriage at “A Weeekend of Encouragement!”.

Join us in 2021!

A Weekend of Encouragement Marriage Retreat on Friday, Jan. 29, 2021 at 7 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Myrtle Beach, SC. Registration will begin at 6 p.m. and we’ll have some goodie bags to hand out to each participant as well as some hot coffee available.

It is not required that you stay at the hotel to participate in the conference, however it is recommended in order for you and your spouse to ‘get away’ and spend some time together.

On Saturday morning, we’ll begin with a Continental Breakfast in our meeting room at 8 a.m. and the first session will begin at 9 a.m. If you’d prefer a full breakfast, the hotel has an awesome breakfast buffet available!

We’ll break for lunch around 11:30 and resume at 1:30 p.m. for our final session. Saturday afternoon and night is for you to re-connect with your spouse and spend some time communicating about what you may have learned during the weekend. On Sunday morning, we will not have any programming. If you need to return home, feel free to do so. If you are staying over, you’re invited to join Dr. Blackaby at Living Water Baptist Church on Hwy. 9 in Longs, S.C. near the intersection of Hwy. 31 and Hwy. 9 in North Myrtle Beach.

This weekend is very casual and is meant to be a special time for you and your spouse. I hope you’ll join us!

The Journey Begins

Thanks for visiting our new website. “A Weekend of Encouragement!” is a Christian Marriage Retreat for every married couple.

This year’s retreat will be led by Dr. Bob Weathers. Bob is the pastor of First Baptist Church in Shallotte, North Carolina. Bob led the retreat last year with the material he created called “5 Myths that Make Marriage Miserable”. It was so well received that we’ve asked Bob to return this year.

It’s going to be a great weekend on Feb. 3 -4, 2023. It will be very relaxed and we’ll stay in a large group setting so you won’t be asked to split up into small groups with folks you’ve never met. Make plans now to join us for an awesome weekend together.

“Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.”
