“Refreshing,” was the number one response from the 75 couples participating in the MSBA Together in Ministries couple retreat. This was held at the Hilton Memphis Hotel March 3-5. Other responses were “Awesome, Relaxing, Great and Wonderful,” as the couples from 27 churches came together to be inspired and encouraged by Dr. Ed Newton and his wife Stephanie. Dr. Newton is the lead pastor at Community Bible Church in San Antonio, Texas.
The Newton’s challenged the ministry couples while sharing from their own hurts and vulnerability of how God had helped them in their marriage and as parents. He was inspired with uplifting messages and practical tools to sharpen life skills in communication using the five voices tool kit.
This was truly a “Life-giving” time for those who participated. Hopefully you can plan on participating in the next Together in Ministry Retreat in February 2023.
