The first day starts with dinner at 5 p.m., then a program at 7:30 p.m., followed by fellowship at 9 p.m. (Check online for subsequent daily schedules.) Regarding the retreat, an event promotion stated, “What does it take to live a life of significance? Too often we define a man’s success by what he has — or what he’s achieved — rather than who he is. But the Bible shows us the true way: Follow the narrow path dedicated to Jesus Christ, pursuing the attitudes, ambitions, and allegiances that honor Him. Come learn the real definition of winning in life. Examine the importance of humility, character, integrity, and courage. Deepen your walk with Christ, your appreciation for your family and your gratefulness for godly men that the Lord places in your life.” Dungy is billed by The Cove as a No. 1 New York Times-bestselling author of several Bible studies and faith-fueled books, such as “Quiet Strength,” “Uncommon,” “The Mentor Leader,” “Uncommon Marriage” (written with his wife, Lauren), and his latest, “The Soul of a Team.” He led the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl victory on Feb.. 4, 2007, the first such win for an African-American head coach.
