Marriage Retreat

2023 Retreat Date

March 3rd-5th (Friday dinner - Sunday lunch)

Each day we will enjoy a time of worship,​ led by our retreat band, and teaching with the purpose of encouraging healthy marriages. 

During free time, enjoy fun activities with your spouse or join in with other couples. We offer high ropes, zipline, volleyball, basketball, 9-square, canoeing, kayaking, nature walks, frisbee golf, mini golf, etc. 

Meet up with other couples in the evening to play table games or make time to be alone and take a romantic walk by the lake. There is something for everyone.

Get all decked out and join us in the SAU lobby for Hors d'oeuvres, and then we will dine in the atrium and enjoy live-music followed by delicious desserts. Put on your comfy clothes and then move to the Grand Hall for a movie, snack, and soda pop. 

Weekend Activities


Brian and Angel Kono - 2022 Picture.jpg

We are pleased to welcome back Brian and Angel Kono as our retreat speakers for this year. Brian and Angel have been married for 33 years, have raised 4 children, and are now enjoying the adventure of being grandparents. They have served in ministry to teens and families all of their married life. They are both ordained pastors in the Free Methodist Church, they are former faculty of the ministry programs at Spring Arbor University, they have performed premarital counseling, and they have been involved in mentoring couples.


Currently, Brian serves as the campus Chaplain at SAU, while Angel works as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Jackson. They have heard many stories of both broken and healthy families, from among Christians and those outside of the church. After years of ministry, they have developed a biblical perspective of marriage, family, and how the Church can help. They are excited to come and share with us from God’s Word and the wealth of experience that God has given them. COME JOIN US
