Who Else Wants A Marriage That "Shines"?

  • Print

Created by God, marriage is the foundational relationship of our society. God wants our marriages to not merely 'survive', but to SHINE!

Regardless of whether your marriage is healthy and strong, or in need of a 'tune-up', we invite all married couples to our 2012 Marriage Retreat entitled "Shine!".

Our featured guest speakers will be Mike & Terrie Fontenot from Virginia Beach, Virginia - USA.

Mike and Terrie have been married for 39 years and been walking with the Lord for about 40 years.

Mike has a Masters in Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary and has 35 years of full-time ministry experience.

In addition to serving as an Evangelist and Elder with the Hampton Roads Church, Mike & Terrie also lead the American Commonwealth Region. This family of churches is made up of more than 30 churches across the Mid-Atlantic and the Midwestern United States. They also are very influential with the Australian, UK, & Indian churches.

Since beginning to lead the church in Hampton Roads in 2000, the church has grown from 300 members to 670+ members today.

Prior to that, Mike had served as an Evangelist in the Washington D.C. church for 16 years.

The Fontenots led the church planting to Sydney, Australia in 1981, and served there for 13 years.

While in Sydney, they helped plant churches in Melbourne, Auckland, Brisbane, Adelaide, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea. Mike also served as a campus minister for five years at Louisiana State University.

Mike and Terri have three daughters faithful to the Lord and happily married with seven grandchildren. One daughter, Mandy, and her husband Forest Versele lead the church in Roanoke, Virginia, along with the campus work at Virginia Tech.

Megan and David Bliley lead the campus ministry in Hampton Roads, and Michelle and Sam Cameron lead the Sydney Church in Australia.

We look forward to learning from their lifetime of wisdom and experience.

The retreat will be held at our building in Port of Spain (87-89 Frederick St.) beginning Friday evening, March 16, 2012 - continuing Saturday morning - and concluding with a dinner/dance party on Saturday night and a powerful worship service on Sunday morning.

The cost is only $550TT per couple or $275TT per person. Please contact our church office at 623-6013 for more details or to register.
