Marriage Conference with John & Nancy Ortberg

When: August 10th

Where: Golden Gate Club in the Presidio

So far in our Year of Authentic Community, we have focused on the inner healing and capacities necessary for us to have emotionally healthy relationships. And for those of us who are married, our marriages are the most important place to pursue relational healing and wholeness. That’s why in August, we’ll spend three Sundays teaching on marriage — and additionally, on Saturday, August 10th, we will host a special Marriage Conference for all married and engaged couples at the beautiful Golden Gate Club in the Presidio. With John and Nancy Ortberg* as our guest speakers, we’ll spend the day reflecting on God’s design and purpose for intimacy in marriage, how our souls connect, and how we relate to one another as one in Christ.

Participating couples can expect three teaching sessions with John and Nancy, interspersed with small-group discussions. And following lunch, there will be a Q&A when John and Nancy will respond to any questions you might have. We look forward to this time to connect with one another and learn from a seasoned married couple with a lot of spiritual wisdom.
