“This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:32

Marriage reveals something of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality—the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners, the eternal romance between Christ and his bride.

Tracing marriage throughout Scripture, from the first marriage in the garden of Eden to the ultimate marriage in the book of Revelation, this seminar will lay out a transcendent vision of marriage that dignifies our own imperfect unions as a display of the gospel, offering insight and hope to every married person.

Join us May 4-5 as we hear from guest speakers, Ray and Jani Ortlund.

Ray and Jani met at Wheaton College in 1968 and married in 1971. Today they serve Immanuel Church in Nashville, Tennessee – an Acts 29 church. Ray also serves on the Council of The Gospel Coalition and blogs at the Coalition website. Jani speaks to women’s groups around the world. Both are published authors. ‚Äč

Together Ray and Jani have served in gospel ministry for over 40 years. They have four outstanding children and thirteen grandchildren. Ray loves to hunt. Jani loves to garden. They love each other most of all!
