Retreat with your spouse

Sometimes the pace of life can cause couples to lose sight of what brought them together in the first place. A healthy marriage requires the nurture of an ever-deepening bond as you navigate life’s inevitable challenges. Whether you’re about to embark on the lifelong journey of marriage or you are a seasoned couple looking to strengthen your relationship, we connect you with opportunities to grow together.

Author and marriage expert Gary Thomas will lead couples in understanding how individual growth is related to couple “closeness” as he illustrates ways to become more emotionally, physically and spiritually connected.
