  • Overview


    We are excited about announcing this 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 December 4-5, 2015 at our home in Wake Forest. 

    We will be providing a room for nursing mothers to go to as needed, but we will not be providing babysitting for other children.

    For those who have been married for more than seven years, would you consider sponsoring a young couple to come to this retreat? If you would like to, go to the donate page to sponsor a couple. Your investment in the marriages of young couples is greatly appreciated!
