Cultivating a Co-Missional Marriage

Come join the Guckenbergers, married more than 25 years, and parents to 11 children (adopted, foster and biological) as they share their cautionary tales and best practices for a marriage to thrive.
Beth and Todd are ministry leaders and have lived internationally for 15 years. This day will be full of resources, discussion, instruction, invitation and challenge. It is not for a PG audience, as they will talk openly about conflict, communication and intimacy. They are strong believers that things or people don’t get fixed, they are healed, and will share vulnerably about places and moments in their lives where healing has occurred. Participants will walk away with tools and conversation starters regarding the hard and intimate challenges of their marriage.
