This event is full at this time.  To enjoy the complete Cove experience including a restful stay in one of our inns, please consider applying for one of our other Pastor Renewal Retreats: Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the Cove. 

If we had approached the Apostles and asked them about their one-year plan or their five-year plan, they wouldn’t have known what we were talking about. They would’ve said, “When the Holy Spirit moves, we move.” We as church leaders need to get back to that. Come humble yourself before the Lord, tap into the power of the Holy Spirit, and let Him refresh you and work in you in a new way. See your sermons increasingly resemble those in the Book of Acts—preaching that wins souls, brings glory to God, and strengthens believers to go out and share Christ.

About Jim Cymbala

Jim Cymbala was born in Brooklyn, NY, where he enjoyed a successful career playing basketball in high school and then college. Upon graduation from the University of Rhode Island, he entered the business world and married his childhood sweetheart Carol. Although it was unforeseen by them, it wasn’t long before God called them into ministry. Arriving at The Brooklyn Tabernacle, they found a congregation of less than 20 people meeting in a rundown building located in an impoverished part of downtown Brooklyn. Over the years, God has shown his faithfulness to them and their congregation in incredible ways. Their present campus includes a large renovated theater in downtown Brooklyn, where thousands of people come each week to hear the Good News of Jesus. Jim is the author of several books, including Fresh Wind Fresh Fire, which was named Christian book of the year. His wife Carol directs the six-time Grammy Award Winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, whose music has blessed people around the world.
