Take A Weekend Away To Invest In Your Marriage

Married couples, join us for our 2024 KC Marriage Retreat at The Westin Kansas City At Crown Center! It's a great opportunity to unplug from your normal routine and invest in your relationship.

Our speakers for this event will be Josh and Heather Teis, Dan and Debbie Kubish, and our Married Life Ministry leaders Dr. Jonathan and Wendy Hoover.

Along with fun and insightful sessions led by our speakers, we've also scheduled in time for a date night for you and your spouse on Saturday evening.

About The Speakers


Josh & Heather Teis

Josh Teis grew up in a pastor’s family in Las Vegas, Nevada. At a young age, he put his trust in Jesus as Savior and surrendered to full-time ministry at 15. He earned his B.A. in Pastoral Theology from Pensacola Christian College where he met his wife, Heather. He’s received his M.A. from Pensacola Theological Seminary and M. Div. from Liberty University. Heather grew up in rural Alabama where she developed a love for God and ministry. After graduating from Pensacola Christian College, she married Josh and moved to Las Vegas where they planted a new church called Southern Hills Baptist Church nearly 20 years ago. The church has grown to over 1,500 in membership and continues to see even more in weekly attendance. They have one son, Jonathan David, and two daughters, Savannah Tyler and Scarlett Noel.


Dan & Debbie Kubish

Dan and Debbie Kubish have been part of the NewSpring ministry for over 30 years—first as volunteers, then becoming part of the staff, serving in many roles over the years. They have been married for 37 years and have been blessed with 5 children who are all married with families of their own. They are "Papa" and "Grammy" to 16 grandchildren who all live in the Wichita area. In their downtime, they love to vacation in places where they can relax and enjoy God's creation.


Jonathan & Wendy Hoover

Dr. Jonathan and Wendy Hoover both grew up at NewSpring Church and have been on staff and serving at NewSpring since 2010. Jonathan serves as the Associate Pastor, speaking on the weekend multiple times throughout the year. Together, he and Wendy lead NewSpring's Married Life Ministry and Care Ministry. Jonathan is also an active researcher in the areas of burnout and psychological wellness.

Jonathan and Wendy have two precious daughters and have been married since 2002. Their favorite things to do together are go to the beach, do escape rooms, and watch old mystery movies.

Married Life Ministry is dedicated to guiding healthy and struggling marriages through the application of biblical principles. Because of this, we support God's design for marriage as set forth in the Bible. This blueprint involves a man and a woman first being committed to loving and serving God, and then committing to loving and serving each other for a lifetime.
