This weekend was the third stop on the Real Marriage Tour—beautiful San Diego. We'll never get tired of meeting folks, hearing their stories, and seeing how Jesus is changing lives and marriages. Each stop on the Tour gives us excitement and encouragement for the rest of the Tour.
One of the most exciting moments of the weekend was watching one man and three women bravely come onto the stage and pray for salvation in Jesus Christ. And we again were privilaged to have Dustin Kensrue, lead singer of Thrice and worship leader of Mars Hill Orange County, lead worship.
Head over to the Real Marriage Tour Facebook page to see more photos that were uploaded from the event and see what folks had to say about attending the conference. We're really looking forward to the rest of the Tour. Check Tour locations to see if we're coming to you.
Here's what some folks were saying about the conference:
“My wife and I came to find a reason to not quit our 19 year marriage and you gave us some clear reasons to work things out and some easy ways to do it thank you so much.” – Leon
“What an amazing and refreshing time! So glad we attended and that we took so much away with us! I am excited to see how our marriage grows even stronger through these teachings and our stronger committment to God and his Word.” – Sheila
“Wow, Mark just had all the men stand, look their spouse in the eye, and vow to love them and lead their family in Christ and then pray over them. What a powerful moment to see a thousand men praying over their wives.” – Brenda
We were also excited to see Dustin and Melissa Nickerson at the San Diego Tour stop. Dustin is the old Mars Hill Bellevue Children's Director who just left to plant a church in San Diego.
