Event Speakers

Terry and Leah Green

Once upon a time twenty-five years ago, Terry and Leah experienced a life-changing connection at the Glen Eyrie Castle. It was hearing how God could bring purpose and oneness to marriage on a level that was so inviting. They took the message home and began to pursue living it out. The results were transforming over time and became life-giving to each other and others. Their 50+ years of marriage has flourished into a reliable source for learning, development, and renewal for hundreds of marriages.

Doug and Krista Goodin

Doug and Krista have been learning and practicing God’s design for marriage since 1992. Between their own experiences and counseling others for over 25 years, they have seen a lot of success and failure where the difference usually comes down to who is willing to work really hard at the right things. They love being married, teaching about marriage, and preparing men and women who are about to marry. Their conferences combine fun with the fundamentals and are the culmination of many hours spent helping couples thrive.

The Goodins enjoy living in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with their three teenagers. Krista is a retired homeschool mom, drummer, and the administrator for Cross to Cross Ministries. Doug is the pastor of Front Range Alliance Church. He is also the founder and president of Cross to Crown Ministries, the New Covenant School of Theology, and author of Exalted: Putting Jesus in His Place and God’s Design for Marriage.
