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.


Newell & Colleen Cerak

are from Gaylord, Michigan. Newell is a retired youth pastor, and Colleen is currently a Physical Education teacher at the Gaylord Intermediate School.

The Ceraks have been married for 38 years and have two daughters, Carly and Whitney. Whitney is married to Matt and they have graced Newell and Colleen with three grandkids.

The marriage of the two, like most, has been a work in progress with its ups and downs. God has been the source of their longevity as well as the foundation upon which their marriage has been built and sustained. They are thankful for what God has taught them during this relationship.

The Ceraks are co-authors with Don and Susie Van Ryn of the book ‘Mistaken Identity,’ a beautiful story of God’s grace in difficult situations.
