Are you a newlywed, just starting out on your journey of trying to understand someone so different than you? Are you an “experienced” spouse, working to keep your marriage above average? Are you a struggling couple, far away from those feelings you had when you first said “I Do”?
We’ve all been frustrated and thought to ourselves, “Why do they do that!?” We’ve all felt overworked and unappreciated by our spouse. We’ve all ridden the roller coaster of emotions that every marriage brings. And we all know deep inside that our marriage, though not perfect, is something sacred and worth fighting for.
The 2018 Mikado Marriage Conference is designed to help you win one of life’s greatest battles – the battle for your marriage. From the very beginning, Satan has hated marriages, homes, and families; and he has done everything possible to destroy them. Thankfully, the power of God is greater than the power of Satan. Using the principles of God’s Word, all of us can have the loving, selfless, holy, and fun marriages that God designed us to have. And who better to share those principles with us than our conference’s guest speaker – Mike Manor? Formerly a singer and entertainer with Disney World, the Royal Caribbean Cruise Company, and Holiday Inns, Mike uses humor and music to encourage and entertain. Ultimately, he points points people to Christ. Married for forty two years, the Manors are qualified with seasoned wisdom and godly counsel to speak to the issues couples face today.
We’ve designed our conference to be as convenient and inexpensive as possible. Rather than having to travel out of town and spend a lot of money, you can come right here for the low cost of only $50 per couple. This will include three meals and all conference materials. When you leave the conference, you will be rejuvenated in your marriage without feeling bad for how much you spent or discouraged about how long of a drive home you have.
This conference is designed “child-free” so that you and your spouse can spend quality time laughing and learning together. Some may choose to find their own childcare, but we are also providing it at the church. Our flat rate for childcare is $1 per child 6th grade and under.
