Ministry can be exhausting.

We want to help.


We're Drs. Tony & Trish Wilson

It would be our pleasure to host you for a relaxing and refreshing waterfront getaway designed just for you and your marital needs. Or, if you are looking for a place to hold your staff or board retreat, Waterfront may be the ideal setting. We also enjoy sharing our story and encouraging couples at churches, conferences, and retreats. Read our story below.

Our Services


Ministry Couple Getaways

Couples in vocational ministry may schedule a stay for up to 5 days at either Tellico Lake in eastern TN or Myrtle Beach, SC where you can enjoy a restful environment, comfortable accommodations, and southern hospitality while focusing on enriching your marriage relationship. Counseling provided by a trained and experienced provider if desired.



With nearly 30 years of experience as a teaching pastor (Tony) and a corporate executive (Trish), we have a passion for communicating the simply profound truths of God’s word in profoundly simple ways. We enjoy speaking together or individually in church services, conferences, classrooms, and retreats.


Group Hosting

Allow us to host the next meeting of your leaders or volunteers in our 900 sf conference room equipped with projection technology and seating for 22 at the conference table. Snacks, meals, and beverages provided upon request.

"God has great things in store for Waterfront Ministries and my dear friends.  It will be one of those special and unique places where you can go for refreshing and renewal with two people who really care!"

Steve & Brenda Swagger, Pastor
