Special Event | NYC Couples Retreat
Join us for a special and important time of strengthening our marriages for a lifelong journey of God-honoring partnership. You will enjoy some much-needed recreation, Bible teaching, fellowship with other couples, and time alone with your spouse. Teaching will focus on the importance of couples having a close and dynamic walk with God. The schedule will feature group sessions and question-and-answer opportunities.

All registration costs are per couple*:
*Please note that the registration cost is the cost for one couple attending the retreat, NOT the price for individuals. For the online registration form, please add you and your spouse as one attendee, then identify the main contact.
**This "no lodging" rate includes all meals and events for couples who choose to lodge offsite at a nearby hotel. One close hotel option is the Best Western Inn in Matamoras, PA.
Registration closes on Sunday, October 10. For additional information and questions, contact Pastor Jim Swanson here.

Tom Palmer surrendered his life to the ministry as a twelve-year-old boy. He and Patty were married in 1983 and have been traveling together in evangelistic ministry since 1989. In recent years, Tom has conducted numerous revival meetings in churches, Christian schools, and camps. Tom and Patty are themselves testimonies to the reality and power of revival and prayer.
