Marriage Renewal Weekend

By the mercies of God… may we be transformed by the renewal of our minds.
Romans 12:1, 2


We’ve been praying for you.

We’ve been praying that by God’s mercy you would take a weekend to renew your heart and mind in the glory and power of Jesus Christ for the purpose of your marriage… or if you’re single, your future marriage.

And, we are thrilled to have Ray and Jani Ortlund here to help us. Having been happily married for almost 50 years, Ray and Jani serve full-time with Renewal Ministries, started by his father and mother, Ray Sr. and Anne Ortlund in 1979. Ray and Jani are traveling the country teaching and encouraging the local church because of this wonderful reality:

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness” (Romans 8:26). We are weak and often depleted. But God loves weak people. He sends his Spirit not to the mighty but to the weak. This divine help comes to us through the gospel of Jesus, the crucified Friend of the undeserving. Renewal Ministries exists to spread gospel-renewal to weak people, through weak people,
by the power of God.
