Take A Weekend Away To Invest In Your Marriage

Married couples, join us for our 2019 KC Marriage Retreat at the beautiful, recently remodeled Marriott Country Club Plaza hotel in Kansas City! It's a great opportunity to unplug from your normal routine and invest in your relationship.

Our speakers for this event will be our Married Life Ministry leaders Pastor Jonathan and Wendy Hoover. They will be joined by special guests Donnie and Heather Van Curen. Donnie is a licensed marriage and family therapist in Oklahoma and a returning favorite speaker at NewSpring.

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. The Marriott is located within walking distance of the Plaza, which is home to a number of historical fountains, great shopping, and delicious restaurants, so you'll have plenty of entertainment to choose from for your night out! (Crown Center and the Power & Light District are also located within a few minutes' driving distance.)

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.
