One Couple Retreats

Cedar Rock Ministries believes your marriage is intended to be a reflection of a holy and loving God. Strong marriages empower us to be good parents, friends, mentors, and leaders in our churches and communities. For this reason, we’ve created a three-night retreat for just you and your spouse.

Who is this retreat for?

Are you a couple who finds communication, intimacy, and connection more and more difficult as the years go by?  Or, perhaps life has simply become so busy that your focus and attention has slowly drifted away from your marriage to the other commitments and responsibilities in your life. While this retreat is not meant for marriages in crisis, it is the perfect opportunity for any couple who wants to grow in their relationship with God and each other.

We were at a busy time in our lives and felt God calling us to get away together for a time of guided reflection. Wow! Nick and Renee are the kind of people who can truly speak life into the story of your marriage and life. We are extremely grateful for how they listened to the Lord and poured into us. Thankful for people like Nick and Renee and Cedar Rock Ministries!
