Marriage Retreat

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and a reduction in our full-time staff, we will not be holding our annual Marriage Retreat this year. Thanks for your understanding.

Doug Parkinson
Executive Director

October 30-November 1, 2020

Life is busy! When was the last time you and your spouse talked, and we mean really talked about something more than just who was going to pick up the kids from soccer practice or what time the office party is?  It's time you signed up for our annual Marriage Retreat at Big Sandy Camp! Make plans to spend some quality, uninterrupted time with your spouse. We will provide your meals, housing, entertainment, opportunities to learn together from fantastic times of worship and speaking and some fun stuff, too. We look forward to serving you here, October 30-November 1 for our Marriage Retreat!

Marriage Retreat costs $100 per person. Registration will be open from 5:00-7:00 PM on Friday with a dismissal time of 10:30 AM on Sunday.

We have switched to a new registration software. Please create a NEW account for your family when registering.

Special thanks to Scott and Lisa Mitchell for doing an awesome job sharing their Marriage Rocks Ministry with us and challenging couples in their marriages. Here are some things people had to say about Marriage Retreat:

“We were able to take a lot from the sessions provided and improve on some communication in our relationship. We just really felt God speaking to us through the sessions and activities.”

“It was a great reconnection time with my wife. A time to depart from the busyness of life and just enjoy ‘us’.” 

“Through the sessions we were able to talk through our communication struggles and make a plan moving forward.”

“This was our first conference together and it exceeded our expectations.”

“For us as a couple this was one of the best years at retreat!”
