Tighten the Knot Marriage Conference

March 7, 2020

Anderson | Columbia

If you want to tie the knot or tighten the knot, this one-day conference is for you!

God created two important institutions, marriage and the church. When we love our spouse like Jesus loves the church, it’s one of the clearest pictures of the Gospel the world will ever see.

“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” - Mark 10:9

Learn from a lineup of dynamic speakers about how to have a healthy, thriving marriage.
