The insight that I received from the Holy Spirit through IM, breathed life into our ministry and marriage. This week, I have been refreshed, gained clarity and experienced a deeper connection with my husband. Every day I sensed the love of my Heavenly Father and could clearly hear Him speak to my heart about me, my husband, and the things that worried me. For the first time in a long time, I experienced God's peace and God's REST! I am so grateful for the transparency of IM's leadership and the other pastors and their wives. It reminded me that we are not alone. Thank you for making this possible.

Thank you! The IM experience is an answer to prayer! This retreat addresses pastors and their wives in the everyday areas we often don't have and outlet to talk about. It gives you common vocabulary to express concerns, hopes, and find solutions. This retreat allows you to bond with others who understand.

As much as we try to or want to connect in a deeper way with God and our spouses, life just seems to get in the way. Everything is so hectic and nonstop even when we don't mean for it to be. It's easy to kind of lose the voice of God and the intimacy with our spouse in all the noise. This week was so needed for connection with God and my spouse and the peace I felt was irreplaceable. I can honestly say that the love and care that I feel for my wife is at a greater depth and I'm thankful for that. Thank you, IM!

"It was an incredible blessing to see pastors and spouses take down the wall, decompress and build community. True relationships were birthed. I love the process and the vulnerability the IM retreat brings. Their authentic approach creates safety and a place for God to refresh and revive."

“For the past several months, I’ve struggled with ministry and finding enjoyment in what we are called to do. The frustration was affecting my marriage and family. It felt at times, like I would suffocate. The last 5 days have breathed life into me. This time away from the noise has allowed me to hear the voice of God so clearly. I’m leaving here with a clear direction and once again, I can take a deep breath.”
Co-Pastor | GA
The time with Intentional Marriage has been awesome and a God-send. I don’t think we realized the toll that our schedule and life rhythms were taking on our bodies and souls. This time has been invaluable where we could hit the pause button and rest. Rest our bodies. Rest our souls. Rest together and with God.
Student Pastor | NC
“This week provided a safe harbor for us to be still & unplug from church, kids, and life. It enables us to have room to hear from the Lord & see each other. The being present type of living brought new life to our marriage. It’s been a pressure relief valve of sorts & in ministry, to have that opportunity is rare. After being loved, listened to, & cared for during this week, we leave ready and able to go do the same for our children!

I can’t imagine a better way to have spent the last 5 days. Slowing down and spending time with God and others has encouraged me to be renewed with hope and passion.
Senior Pastor’s Spouse | GA
I came here not knowing what to expect. This retreat has been a huge blessing to my life, it has helped me understand the importance of slowing down and letting God take control. I loved how I can go home refreshed and with a whole new perspective of how I will run my marriage and life. Thank you for helping me open up my heart to my wife and God.

More Than a Vacation, More Than A Conference
This is not just another vacation or motivational conference where you leave on a high and then things just return to normal. Rather because IM is focused on Soul Care you will leave not only feeling rested, but centered and prepared to walk throughout this season of life.
A Host Dedicated To You & Your Spouse
Every IM trip has a dedicated Host that will work to make your time meaningful and special, no request is to small. Whether you like croissants with your morning coffee, or have special food allergies, your Host is there to help make your time comfortable so you can get the rest you need, the Soul Care you need.
A Place To Be Poured Into
We all need physical rest but we often neglect the Soul Care needed to be able to live a deep & fulfilling life. Along with time to relax and spend time with your spouse your hosts will lead time to pour into you. We focus on people and not process. Our goal is to create space to talk, to learn, to have fun, and to be poured into spiritually. More than a Bible study, IM will lead you into a times of meaningful discussion, silence, reflection, and teaching during your trip and allow God to work within you. And because your host will follow up with you for an entire year, the effects of the trip won't dissipate just because you're back home.
