Are you and your spouse ready for a retreat that's designed to draw you closer together as you both draw closer to Jesus? It's our hope that the UPBC Marriage Retreat will provide the refreshment, relaxation, and laughter you need. Come away to camp, together.

God’s rescue of those trapped in sin's bondage, the Holy Spirit’s guidance, and the truths of Scripture all make life worth living—life that's abundant! Marriage is one of the ways God speaks to us and to others in our lives. What is your relationship as husband and wife communicating to the world?

Speakers: Jim & Priscilla Wynalda

Speakers: Jim & Priscilla Wynalda

Our theme for this year is "Run to the Middle." Session topics include A Reverse Tug of War, Oil and Water DO Mix, and Mind the Gap. Don't just "hang on" until the next stage of life—flourish in your relationship now!

Our speakers Jim and Priscilla Wynalda were married in 1988 and reside just north of Grand Rapids, MI. They have seven children and are hoping to add one more by June—a 15-year-old boy from the Philippines. They're also grandparents, and claim that being a grandpa and grandma is the best of fun! 

Jim is a pediatrician who has counseled parents on subjects from depression to stool-hoarding for 26 years. Jim has read the Lord of the Rings trilogy numerous times. He loves the outdoors, and although he's shot a bear, he also feeds the squirrels in his front yard.

Priscilla has taught junior high school, directed school plays, nurtured seven children, and has been homeschooling for three years after swearing she would never do it! She loves the Chicago Bears, and—although she doesn’t like to cook—she regularly has more than six people around her table.

Together, the Wynaldas have taught a young married couples Sunday school class for 15 years. They love watching Christ transform lives, and are active members of New City Church in downtown Grand Rapids.
