Retreat to the Cove with Elva

March 31 - April 4, 2025

The Billy Graham Training Center | The Cove, Asheville, N.C.

Since the days of my youth, the life and ministry of Billy Graham has been an inspiration to me. In 2023, it was a dream come true when I finally had the chance to visit the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove. So amazing and unforgettable was my experience, I wanted to record it in art. I sat in Billy and Ruth‘s beloved rocking chairs on the back deck of The Cove and painted the breathing beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountain skyline before me.

As I sat and painted, I made a promise to myself that I would return to this anointed place and bring others with me. So, here is my heartfelt invitation to you: join me and my family for a visit to The Cove. We will enjoy Bible teaching, worship and original music, along with art and entertainment. We will also tour the Samaritans Purse Operations Center to see their vast ministry operations and visit the Billy Graham Library.

Please join us for a much needed time of relaxation and communion with God and others.

God bless,
