10:00am – 11:00am:  Session 1:  Greg and Julie Gorman

Statistically, it’s been suggested that 92–98 percent of evangelical believers struggle to identify their God-given purpose. With such a staggering statistic, it only stands to reason that the percentage for couples identifying their God-given purpose together must be even higher. After all, kids, careers, and everyday demands often muddy the already murky waters of uncertainty. Yet God’s big idea – His very purpose for your marriage – will be accomplished. In this exciting and energetic keynote, Greg and Julie will lift your thoughts and elevate your expectations concerning your most precious earthly relationship—your marriage—helping you welcome God’s unique design for your marriage.

11:30am: Lunch

1:30pm – 2:30pm:  Session 2:  Dr. Lynn Wicker: DISCovering Your Journey as a Parent: Just Surviving or Thriving? 

Ever wonder why as a parent you seem to always be butting heads with one of your kids? Often, we think it's just a developmental stage or phase they are going through. But in reality, most of these relationship collisions all go back to our individual personality styles and celebrating the unique way that God made each of us. I'll share with you some life changing secrets and solutions to not only understanding yourself better, but understanding your child or teen better and strengthening your relationships now and for a life time. You don't want to miss this!

2:30pm – 2:45pm: Break

2:45pm – 3:45pm:  Session 3:  Susie and Kevin Larson: Your Sacred Yes - Saying Yes to God's Best

It's so easy to give away our time to things un-appointed by God. We commit to something because it's a good cause or there's a great need. Or maybe because no one else will help out. The result? The days blur together and we find ourselves overworked and underjoyed, desperate for a faith awakening. Here’s a critical point: All of our racing and rushing not only makes us tired, it makes us vulnerable. We tend to take shortcuts, lose focus, and unknowingly open the door for the enemy to lead us astray. God’s will for us always involves a measure of rest and reflection. We bear fruit in this life to the degree that we abide in the Vine, follow Jesus’ lead, and do what He says. His will for us is our best-case scenario. Will you say yes to the One who will rejuvenate your soul?

10:00am – 11:00am:  Session 4: Susie & Kevin Larson: Your Powerful Prayers - Perseverance & God's Promises

Do you believe that God created you for a purpose? Does it seem that once you awaken to this idea that you hit one roadblock after another? How do we navigate the waters of opposition, the reality of our fears, and the timing of God to lay hold of His best purposes for us? The days are growing more evil but we have every reason for faith. God is busy and active in our world and He will profoundly use those who are willing to take hold of His promises and walk them out in their everyday lives. It’s impossible to please God without faith. Get ready for a time to be challenged and motivated to become and accomplish everything God intended for you since the beginning of time! 

11:30am: Lunch

1:30pm – 2:30pm:  Session 5: Greg and Julie Gorman: What Fuels Our Purpose?

What do you want for your marriage? No, seriously: What do you really want for your marriage? In your most perfect vision, what does your marriage relationship look like? In this session, Greg and Julie challenge couples to discover what they really want for their marriage, not what their parents, kids, or pastor wants…not what they want to want or what they know they should want … not even what they feel obligated to provide for their marriage. Instead, they help couples envision what they really want for their marriage, gain clarity on what that looks like, and provide practical steps to intentionally dream for God’s best, as a couple.

Sunday, February 11 – Fort Lauderdale, Florida

7:00am: Arrival at Fort Lauderdale

You will have plenty of unscheduled time to mingle and create your own unique cruising experience. Speaker presentations will provide a lot of variety but we want you to know this is your cruise– all presentations are optional. You simply choose what is meaningful for you. We are not scheduling any evening presentations as the cruise ship will provide great entertainment, however speakers or any cruisers may organize additional workshops or discussion groups. Dinner seating will be assigned to you but you may request a move which we will be happy to accommodate if possible.

Cruises are very flexible and we can personalize it any way we wish. If you want to experience a particular event or port tour and would like to be with others in our group we will help make that happen.
