Experiencing Jesus in Your Marriage
- Experiencing Jesus in Your Marriage is a spiritually formative retreat that helps couples learn to intentionally focus on the Presence of Christ in their marriage and through this experience grow in their love for God and for one another.
who am i, really?
- Author David Benner defines Christian Spirituality as the process of a transformational journey that recognizes Christ as the deepest truth of our being. It is a journey toward union with God—not just becoming like Christ, but actualizing the Christ who is in us. This retreat focuses on the discovery of false self concepts that we often have about ourselves, and ways to live into our true self, hidden in Christ. Emphasis is placed upon learning to grow in spiritual maturity through the development of an emotionally and spiritually healthy lifestyle.
