Celebrate Valentine’s Day while drawing closer to your spouse and to God. This retreat is designed to help you and your spouse enjoy a romantic weekend together using set aside time to grow in your understanding of each other.

This Special Weeked is Hosted by Terry and Leah Green

Once upon a time over 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 55+ years of marriage has flourished into a reliable source for learning, development, and renewal for hundreds of marriages.
