You may have heard the phrase – “Come apart before you come apart.” Jesus said something similar to his disciples when he gave this invitation: “Come away by yourselves to a remote place and rest for a while.” (Mark 6:31). Life is demanding and complicated. Without intentional practices of rest and renewal none of us are able to keep perspective. This is especially true of marriage relationships. Without tending, the spark that brought a couple together can begin to fade. Lake Ann Camp’s Couples Retreat is perfectly designed to stir the embers and reignite the flame.

Whether you are just beginning the marriage journey, or have been married for decades, you can expect to be encouraged and filled with hope for the days ahead. Practical messages, engaging activities, and quiet moments provide rest and renewal. Join us at beautiful Lake Ann Camp and discover life at its best.

John Vermilya 




When it’s tempting to sit as a spectator in the stands, John Vermilya challenges audiences to resist spiritual apathy, stagnancy, and religiosity—and instead, to get in the game by following Jesus Christ with full abandon. Through storytelling and humor, he reflects on his own Christian walk and his experiences as an athlete, including four years as a professional soccer player for the Charlotte Eagles, and more than a decade as a soccer ministry tour leader with Missionary Athletes International.

John & Tami Scally




John and Tami Scally have been married for over 23 years. They have been given a platform by God to help struggling couples as they share the life lessons that they have learned on their journey of faith. Having served the Lord in both youth ministry and now lead pastor ministry, their experiences are vast. They are not afraid to share their own struggles believing that God can change any and every issue. Their transparency and wisdom is guaranteed to be refreshing and helpful for each couple who attends.
