Billy Graham Evangelistic Association – Military Chaplain Retreat

It has been an honor to host the Military Chaplain Retreat at The Billy Graham Training Center (The Cove) in Asheville, NC for the past 18 years. The event spans four days of Biblical teaching, meaningful worship, and multiple opportunities to encourage the military individual or couple and express our appreciation to them for their service to our Country. The theme of the retreat is “A Close Encounter with God, Your Calling and Your Family” and our desire is that the attendees will leave the retreat knowing they experienced God in a unique and life-changing way.

The BGEA is honored to provide this ministry that only requires a registration fee of $100 per person, which includes lodging, conference fees and meals. In addition, we are pleased to pay up to $300 per person if flying or $300 per car if driving to assist with their travel expenses. For further information and details, we invite you to visit

*The event is open to active-duty Military Chaplains; National Guard and Reserve Chaplains who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan are also eligible.
