Pastor Derek and his wife Teresa have been leading marriage ministry events including conferences/retreats and counseling since 1996. They have led these events for churches in Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, and Mississippi. They are also on the family ministry team of the Missouri Baptist Convention. Having brought this ministry to Harmony, they offer marriage counseling to members and in certain circumstances to non members.
Harmony has an annual marriage retreat/conference held at various resort locations within two and half hours of Rogersville. This is a fun filled weekend to enjoy with your spouse and enrich your marriage.  Members and non members are welcome to this special weekend.  The retreats usually  start on Friday night with ice breaker games and most likely a humorous video to relax and laugh. On Saturday, weenjoy a biblical marriage seminar lead by Pastor Derek. There is plenty of  free time on Saturday afternoon for you to spend with your spouse. You will return that evening for a romantic dinner date with your spouse. Then Sunday morning, we will worship together and hear more from God’s Word on Marriage. While the basic structure is the same each year, the theme and teaching material changes each year. So if you have been to one, the next one will be different.  We believe any and every marriage can grow at any age! 



On occasion we offer marriage classes through our LIFT discipleship ministry. Additionally there are often other opportunities to enrich you marriage throughout the year. Such events may include “parent’s night out,” and our annual Valentines Banquet.
