ReConnect Marriage Retreat

St. Timothy's Episcopal Church Sponsored by the Oahu Church of Christ

The ReConnect Weekend is designed to bring couples closer together by focusing their attention on their relationship spiritually, emotionally, and physically. This event is open to anyone, so invite your friends!

Friday's session, October 14, will be from 5 - 10 PM. Saturday's session, October 15, will be from 8 AM - 1 PM. We are bringing in Owen and Lauren Mitchell to lead us in this theme of reconnecting.

Working with Marriage Dynamics Institute in Franklin, TN since 1998, Owen and Lauren Mitchell have been privileged to invest in thousands of married couples and love what they do. In addition to leading Facilitator Training Seminars to equip couples to lead Dynamic Marriage & United enrichment classes, they travel the country leading ReConnect Weekend retreats. They know everyone has a story so they teach, equip, support, and encourage couples to make their story the best it can be.

Owen is a graduate of Freed-Hardeman University. With 40 years’ previous experience in Retail and Property Management, he is now a pickleball instructor and competitor. Lauren exchanged cross stitching and 20 years as an Executive Assistant for motherhood, and has volunteered at a pro-life women’s clinic since 2006.

From Eustis, Florida, the Mitchells attend Orange Avenue Church of Christ. They are partial to home but love to hike and snorkel through God’s creation. They love Jesus, each other, and family, and are parents of two married children and grandparents to two fun, active, sweet, smart and loud grandsons.

Emphasizing transformative principles, ReConnect uses a combination of lecture, short videos, small-group activity, individual couple activity, and humor. The information and interaction encourage couples with a new vision and give them tools to build a marriage that both makes them happy and honors God.
