Hey there, we are Shane & Beth!

We know from experience how hard it can be for your marriage to flourish while in full-time worship ministry. We have learned that we either schedule time with God and each other in to our lives, or everything else will schedule it out.


Our vision for the Access Retreat is, by God's grace, to walk away encouraged, refreshed, and empowered to jump back in to the hard work of serving His Bride day after day. On October 20th-23rd, 2024 we will meet in an intimate group size of a dozen couples.  We will have times of worship, times of sitting under God's Word, incredible meals together, times of just hangin around the fire, and even writing and sharing songs and reflections from God's Word.

If this sounds like something you have been needing

 About the Venue.

Comfy cabins, amazing food, stunning views, time to write, rest, and connect.

 About Access



That may sound funny, and yet, we all know how hard it is these days to find extended time alone together. We are going to have intentional time corporately, but a big part of this retreat is to have set-apart ACCESS to your spouse.  To have your marriage renewed and refreshed through time alone together where you get to just REST. You will get your own TX Hill Country cabin, stocked with goodies and gifts for the week!     



You'll have full access to Wanderin' Star Farms, a place that has been in our family for a couple of decades. God has used this place in the most incredible ways to help us see and savor Him. Hidden among 30 acres of Texas Hill Country oaks and cliffs, access to the farm includes nature trails, horseback riding, giant swings, mini animals and gardens - all hosted by our incredible Wanderin’ Star Farms team.


Our hope is that having access to all these things above would be a means to an end... Who is Christ. That we would have a deeper awareness of our access to the King of kings; not just on retreats, but always.



One of the best parts about the ACCESS retreat is that it is small and intimate.  The two prerequisites on this particular ACCESS retreat are:  You need to be married and in ministry (either you or your spouse).  At the farm, we have twelve dreamy cabins- that means we have space for twelve couples:)  The date of the retreat is October 20-23rd, 2024. You will check in on Sunday between 4 and 6pm, with dinner starting at 6pm that night. The retreat will end Wednesday at 11:00am after breakfast and a closing session.


 * 2 of our properties are more homes than cabins.  They are great!  You will still have your own room and bathroom, but will share the home with one other couple, so if you have some buddies you can request it!  

We are in diligant prayer over this weekend and the couples God has already lined up. If you feel called to attend please fill out the form below! We hope to see you there!
