Church Retreats
Collaboration with Local Churches - 
We would welcome the opportunity to collaborate with your local church or small group! 

One of the fastest growing segments of our marriage ministry is partnership with the local church. We believe that God is calling us to help strengthen the local church by building healthy families and marriages.
In doing so, we have developed a one-day and two-day weekend encounter designed to promote the oneness, intimacy, and holiness of marriage. As with our other marriage adventures, we incorporate experiential learning activities, such as Trust Walks, Trust Falls, Helium Poles and other fun and memorable activities that help couples sustain what they have learned far beyond their time spent during the weekend workshop. We believe this unique approach is what makes for an effective and transformational encounter for couples.
These are just some of the churches that we have been blessed to lead retreats:

•  Two Rivers Church in Knoxville, Tennessee
•  Desperation Church in Cullman, Alabama
•  Hermitage Hills Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee
•  Frasier Methodist Church in Montgomery, Alabama
•  Manteo First Assembly Church in Manteo, North Carolina
•  Bent Tree Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas
•  Word Alive International Church in Oxford, Alabama
For more information about how you can host a weekend marriage encounter for your church, please contact Dr. Sumlin at
