All Terry and Barbi’s Marriage Retreats bring hope, restoration, inspiration, and encouragement to married couples – the most intimate relationship we have on earth! Some testimonies that have come in after these retreats:
“We had been considering divorce after having serious problems for years. We bought your book after the seminar and have been reading it every day. We never used to pray together, but now after 37 years, we wrap our arms around each other and pray. Thank God you shared your seminar with us!”
“My husband and I came to your marriage seminar and dinner concert last weekend. I just wanted to personally thank you for your ministry and the testimony of you and your husband. Our marriage was on the brink of divorce. The Lord restored our marriage and our love for one another through this time. We are so thankful for being able to attend your conference. It was such a blessing to us to be able to worship together and to see a couple so committed to the Lord and each other!”
“I would like to thank you for presenting the marriage seminar at our Church and for the 40 day reviving marriage book we bought. I have been asking my husband for 33 years to pray with me and with our sons. I had never heard him pray at church or in our home. Since we’ve been reading through your book, he prays daily with me.”
Each retreat includes a power-packed presentation, uniquely enhanced with original marriage songs, multi-media, and teaching. It is Biblically-based, and yet practical with true-life stories. “Huddle Time” worksheets are shared after each session to help couples personally apply Biblical principles presented. There is always both laughter and tears, but best of all, a new beginning and stronger foundation for a vibrant, growing relationship! Whether for maintenance or repair, every couple attending will find new inspiration and hope for their relationship.
Important topics included:
- Romantic Dating
- The Power of Unity

Every couple is given worksheets during “Huddle Times” to guide them through personal discussions after each session. It gives couples a chance to write down their thoughts and apply what they’re hearing after each session.
Seminar lasts 6 hours and are often on a Friday 7-9:30 PM & Saturday 9 AM-12:30 PM, but this seminar can adapt to camp and conference settings, teaching daily over a week of sessions, or can be done all day Saturday 9 AM – 4 PM with an hour for lunch break. Consider ending your seminar with a Romantic Banquet including music designed to inspire married couples with Biblical songs of encouragement, or have Terry & Barbi for one of their concerts for your whole church so the whole family can join in to end your Marriage and Family Weekend.
A perfect follow-up for the seminar is to take couples through Terry & Barbi’s devotional study guide, “Reviving Your Romance.” A recent statistic by the late Zig Ziglar reveals that 99.5% of couples that pray together, stay together! Consider getting this resource at a bulk rate for seminar attendees to encourage couples to continue building invaluable life-long habits of prayer and Bible reading together, even after the seminar is done… call 615-773-8480 for more information.
