The Marriage Ministry's mission is to inspire, encourage and equip married couples and those who are preparing for marriage, by providing practical, Biblical resources through seminars, retreats, monthly classes and counseling. The Ministry strives to help each husband and wife to have the heart of Christ so they become a financially, emotionally and spiritually stable union.
The Marriage Ministry held its 2016 fall event in the Great Smoky Mountains from Thursday, September 22, to Saturday, September 24, 2016. The Marriage Ministry rented 3 large cabins in Pigeon Forge, TN that was shared by the 33 couples that attended. The Marriage Ministry also provided dinner on Thursday night and lunch on Friday. For entertainment, the couples attended the Soul of Motown show and dinner at The Grand Majestic Dinner Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN that Friday night.
It would not have been a Marriage Retreat without some counseling on mariage. Our own Bro. Dennis Steverson, Sis. Carolyn Steverson, Bro. Robert Tellis and Sis. Sandra Tellis did a skit illustrating the importance of communication and forgiveness in the marriage. We also were entertained by Bro. Steverson performing a Barry White song and Bro. Tellis singing "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green.
We were blessed with beautiful weather, safe travels and a great time. Many kudos to the Marriage Ministry and Sis. LaVonda Hildreth for their hard work.
