We are excited to announce this retreat for young couples who have been married seven years or less.
Generally, most of the people who come have children getting older - nearing the age of marriage. Without fail, many of them say two things to us, first: “We sure wish we had known these things 20 years ago.” Second, they say: “Why don’t you do a marriage retreat for younger married couples in order to help them lay foundations? Then they won't say, 'I wish we had known these things 20 years ago.'”
Because of this, we have decided to hold a marriage retreat for young couples June 9-10 at our home in Wake Forest.
One of my great desires is that pastors in a region who embrace the sufficiency of Scripture will begin to know each other better and in turn work together to advance the kingdom of heaven in their communities. To that end, the NCFIC would like to invite you to a luncheon for prayer, mutual encouragement, fellowship, and exhortation.
Our national conference in 2017 is taking place just a few days before the 500 year anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses nailed to the Wittenberg Door October 31, 1517. This is why we are directing our attention to the doctrine and the fruit of the Protestant Reformation.
The heart of the Reformation was repentance. This is the source of all times of refreshing. At this conference, we will be hearkening back to some of the great doctrines of the Protestant Reformation but it will be even more focused on the reformations of church and family that are in motion today as God continues to reform His church.
