with Beth & Jeff McCord

You’ll experience some of the most meaningful conversations with your spouse as we pamper you with luxurious southern hospitality

Coming 2020

we’ve strategically designed a soul-stirring experience to give
your marriage the focused attention and care it needs,
no matter if you have been married for 50 years or 5 months.
Our team will walk with you, hand-in-hand, to break down  communication barriers and misunderstandings, even if you've had
them for years


You'll Experience

  • True Connection
  • Peace and Understanding
  • Reignited Passion
  • Growth in the Gospel
"I knew that I was very conflict resistant and passive, but I didn't understand before the [Charlotte] event that it was part of my pre-wire at birth.
I have felt shame and guilt for just not being A MAN.
The "aha!" moment for me was that I can allow the Holy Spirit to transform that part of me not from a place of shame but from a place of unique design. I have struggled with no success to change. I have a sense of confidence now that change is!"
Brian, Type 9

Your Retreat Experience

Beth & Jeff designed this retreat for you and your spouse to breakthrough communication barriers over the weekend and then equip you with everything you need to continue the transformation at home.

World-Class Training from Your Enneagram Coaches Beth & Jeff McCord

Using the power of the Enneagram along with the truth of the Gospel, Beth and Jeff will help uncover places in your marriage where there could be potential pitfalls or missed communication.

You know, those places you usually don’t like to notice or have not figured out how to navigate by yourselves.

Then Beth and Jeff will show proven tools and techniques they use in their marriage and other marriages they've helped to change the conflict and communication from unhealthy to healthy.  

Throughout the weekend, you will have a chance to use those tools and techniques in your own relationship with Beth, Jeff, and other Enneagram coaches to guide you.
