Fall Romance Weekend

November 19-21, 2021

Start the holiday season off by spending this weekend together so you can focus on each other.

Guest Speakers: Billy & Yolanda Jackson

Authors, Speakers and Marriage Strategist Billy & Yolanda Jackson are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to “real life” marriage and family situations. They have a unique way they capture and engage their audiences to lead them in living a more peaceful life. They are truly passionate about changing the world one couple, one family at a time.

In 2016, Billy and Yolanda were inspired to share their marriage testimony in order to help other married couples who were seeking to strengthen and restore their marriage. As a result, they launched  Live in Peace Ministries.

Together, they host seminars, workshops, conferences and retreats to equip and encourage married people on their journey. While inspiring them to believe that no matter where the broken pieces have fallen, you still can live in peace together and with God.

These two very different souls found God’s true love in 2004 and blended their families together in 2007. Together they have 4 beautiful children and 4 adorable grandchildren.

Throughout the weekend, they will be teaching about how to…Recharge Your Marriage.

Session 1: How to recharge the love in a chaotic world
Session 2: We’re in this together … Communication is Key!
Session 3: Effective ways to refill your love tank
Session 4: Creating a marriage legacy

Guest Speakers: Robby & Christy Ryan

We are Robby and Christy Ryan. We have been married for 30 years and have three adult children and 2 little grandsons (ages 1 and 3). We love spending time with our family and we eat a family lunch together every Sunday after church. (If you feed them, they WILL come.)

In 2008 we were called into marriage ministry after God saved our own marriage from years of alcoholism, drug use, gambling, pornography, and affairs. God led us from hopelessness and near divorce to forgiveness and total restoration. For the last 12 years we have walked alongside many couples, led small groups, and spoken at several churches, retreats, and conferences. (Deer Run is one of our “favorite” ones!) We know the Lord heals broken marriages and strengthens all marriages and families because He has healed and strengthened ours, and we believe He desires to do the same in yours. We look forward to sharing our hearts with you.

Thoughout the weekend we will focus on… How to have a LOVE THAT NEVER FAILS Marriage.

Friday Night Session
Finding Forgiveness: We will openly share our story and you’ll hear the good news of how God got ahold our hearts and brought restoration to our family.

Saturday Sessions
What’s the Secret to Connecting and Communicating?: We lived the first 16 years like “roommates” and communicated like that too. We’ll share what we have learned about keeping our communication on a level that keeps our hearts truly connected and growing closer together.

Love Never Fails: Have you “Lost that Loving Feeling?” Have you ever thought, “I just don’t feel much passion for my spouse anymore.” We sure did. We learned from the blueprint in 1 Corinthians 13 how God loves us and how we are to love each other. And when we practice love like this, love never fails!

Sunday Session
‘Til Death Do Us Part…Leaving a Legacy: How can your marriage leave a legacy that lasts and really matters? We will discuss the legacy you inherited, and how what you do now (with your family and with Jesus) will determine the legacy you leave. Learn what it looks like to put the “gospel on display” for the world to see.
