The response was overwhelming and provided further ministry opportunity for this young visionary preacher in 1946. Property was acquired on the North East River in Cecil County, Maryland for establishing a summer tent revival and camp meeting facility. Camps were built for children, numerous mission projects were accomplished around the world, and Sandy Cove was born.
A new vision for Sandy Cove was cast with the addition of the majestic Chesapeake Lodge Hotel & Conference Center during the 1980s. This spacious facility continues to serve as a focal point of the ministry, offering comfort and hospitality which rival many fine hotels.

Some have said, to understand where you want to go, you must often look at where you’ve been. Sandy Cove is no exception… set on a foundation of biblical truth, built with stones of faith and led by godly innovation.
The ministry of Dr. George Palmer, and his family, created a legacy so rich and so deep that it should neither be forgotten nor ignored.
We invite you to watch and listen as Mark P. Fisher recalls the story that not only shaped this ministry for the last 60 years, but sets a course for what it will become for years to come.
Remember… Jesus Never Fails!
