Welcome to Whispering Cove Retreat’s Website

If you are struggling in your ministry with feelings of burnout, frustration, anxiety, depression, hopelessness, despair, pressures in ministry, marital conflict, or have secretly contemplated leaving the ministry…


Studies show that pastors and missionaries are not immune to the stresses of daily living in a fallen world.

  • More than 1500 pastors and missionaries leave the ministry every month in the US.
  • 48% of pastors and missionaries get divorced.
  • 70% of ministers constantly fight depression.
  • Only 1.5% of those who enter the ministry stay in the ministry long enough to retire from it.
  • 80% of pastors’ wives feel that their husbands are over worked and wish they would choose another profession.
  • The majority of ministers’ wives surveyed state that ministry has destroyed their family lives.

We all have the tendency to believe that we are the only ones who struggle with these issues. Therefore, I say it again: YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!
