This is a weekend to refresh and encourage your marriage.  It will be a chance to interact with other couples and gain some tools that will help you grow as  followers of Christ and as a couple.
This weekend will help you build a strong foundation for a healthy marriage and is open to pre-married couples as well as those in well-established marriages!


Our leaders for the weekend—

Bob and Nicole Battema will share God’s wisdom for strong marriages and families sharing from their 28 years of imperfect practice and experience.  Bob is a retired Air Force colonel and now a pilot with a major U.S. airline.  Nicole is a stay at home mom, Air Force wife, and has led and served in many ministries around the world designed to encourage women through life’s challenges.  Bob and Nicole are the proud parents of three sons, Grayson, Koby, and Trey, daughter in law Haley, and live in Eden, Utah.

Conference Schedule

The Growing Together weekend will begin with dinner on Friday evening at 5:30 p.m., followed by our first two sessions with Bob and Nicole. These sessions will conclude at 9:00 p.m. on Friday night.

A continental breakfast and a snack break will be provided on Saturday morning and our sessions will conclude on that day at around 12:30 p.m.  We would encourage you to make plans to have a date night with your spouse on Saturday; however, our childcare will end with our conference sessions at 12:30 p.m.

On Sunday morning, we will have a session together at 9:00 a.m. and then Bob and Nicole will be speaking in our morning worship gathering at 10:15 a.m.

Our session topics include: God’s Plan for Marriage, Communication & Conflict and Creating True Intimacy, among others.  Each session will provide some practical application steps and exercises.  So whether you are looking for regular tune-up or are in need of a complete overhaul, we believe God will meet you during this weekend!
