SACRED MARRIAGE CONFERENCE
When: May 2-4, 2013
Where: RBC Sanctuary
Speaker: Gary Thomas
What if God designed marriage to make us holy instead of happy? Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. Yet, what if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy…but holy? And, what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?
Based on Gary’s bestselling book, the Sacred Marriage seminar helps couples uncover how marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and each other. Husbands, wives, and singles who are contemplating marriage will learn how to:
- Turn marital struggles into spiritual and personal appreciation.
- Love your spouse with a stronger sense of purpose.
- Partner in the spiritual growth and character formation of your spouse.
- Transform a “tired” marriage into a relationship filled with awe and respect.
