Going Deeper Together Marriage Conference

October 31, 2015

The Center for Marriage and Relationships hosted the second annual Going Deeper Together marriage conference at Biola University. The conference was held Friday night and Saturday all day, and attracted over 75 couples from various churches around Southern California. Going Deeper Together is a unique marriage conference that combines the timeless, cross-cultural wisdom of Scripture with scholarly insights from the fields of psychology, communication and spiritual formation. Speakers included: Dr. Chris Grace, Dr. Tim Muehlhoff, Dr. Judy TenElshof and Alisa Grace. One of the unique offerings of this conference is the integration of spiritual disciplines with the material, and dedicated time for couples to process what they have learned with God and with each other.

Testimonials from Attendees 

“My husband and I have been in a crisis in our marriage for the last year. He signed us up for the conference at a friend’s urging. I didn’t think it could make an impact, but it has. God is at work! God wants to be glorified in our marriage. Your weekend has helped bring a thaw in my heart and once again turn my heart toward God’s truth – His good plan for His children. The spiritual retreat / quiet time was especially impactful for me. Thank you thank you thank you – may God be glorified through the multiplication of this ministry <3”

“This has been an answer to prayer. It has made me have a new perspective about my marriage after 15 years."

“Best conference I have ever been to. Very helpful application and biblical integration the entire time."

“It was so wonderful to be at the marriage conference back in October! You all did an excellent job organizing it and we really benefited from every aspect of the conference. The talks were extremely practical and very helpful and we were so thankful for the opportunity to sit under such informed and wise counsel. Our favorite part of the conference was being able to sit down with a marriage therapist. Wow! We have talked about going to counseling for months but we hadn't pulled the trigger yet. It was an incredibly helpful hour together! So we are grateful for all that God did in our lives and for the chance to be a part of it. Thank you!

“I’m so grateful to have attended this marriage retreat! My wife and I were able to refocus on God’s purpose for our marriage to flourish and reflect to the world the amazing grace of Jesus Christ”

“The materials provided were helpful and informational. Great resources in the Bible – with Scriptures given in the example of topics discussed. Offering a session with a professional for the couples was the most precious gift that we could have received.”

“Loved this weekend. Feeling not only refreshed in our marriage but refreshed in the spirit. Also, LOVE the tangible resources to take home and put into practice."
