Your nest may be full, or it may be empty, but everyone longs for a nest without thorns! Strong families don't just happen, they must be built. Whether young, old, or in-between there is something for you at this Advance.

Our featured speakers are Dave and Bethlie Young. They host the popular podcast "Keeping It Young... Conversations about marriage, family, and ministry life." You will be instructed and inspired through their anointed teaching.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Growing Your Communication
  • Growing Your Partnership
  • Growing Through Difficulties
  • Growing in Love
  • Growing through Forgiveness

The Advance begins Friday, October 14, at 1:00 in the afternoon. Sessions continue through Friday night and resume Saturday morning. We trust the abbreviated time will enable many younger couples to attend.

Bonus Session. For those desiring more time to relax and enjoy the setting, we are having a Thursday night meeting also (October 13). The Bonus Session will feature special music and messages. Whether newlywed, nearly dead, or somewhere in-between; there is something for you and your spouse at this Advance!

“The Advance allowed us to refocus, reacquaint, and recharge our marriage and appreciation for one another. Learning God’s plan for a happy and fruitful marriage in a place so full of the Holy Spirit was just what we needed and we are so thankful to have attended.”

“Thank you so much for the couples advance! It was our first one and it was fantastic; my husband and I really enjoyed it.”

“We enjoyed our first Couples Advance. We enjoyed the music, speakers, and sweet spirit of everyone we met. Thank you for both the time and effort you both put into planning this event.”

“Praise The Lord! God is really working on our marriage to make it more heavenly and we would like to share that message.”
