Weekend Retreat for married couples at the Jersey Shore
Married for 36 years, Chris and Juanita Gissentaner are a testimony to God’s redemptive work in marriage. Having come from the pain of divorce, they experienced the struggle of remarriage and the challenges of raising a blended family. By submitting themselves to the working of the Holy Spirit they have learned valuable lessons, which they now share with couples nationwide. They began marriage ministry in 1996 and are presently the directors of “Under His Wings Ministries
Inc.,” a marriage ministry located in the lower Catskill Mountains of New York. They have been called to build marriages through transparency and intimacy.
Brian and Suzanne Timbrouck married in 1992 and have six children. Neither was a practicing Christian when they met, and neither had any idea how to make a life-time commitment work. After many years of struggle the marriage fell apart. The couple was dealing with addictions, infidelity, depression, and illness. Divorce appeared imminent…But God! Ultimately they decided to
start over, submit to God, and change! In obedience to God’s directive they began 3 to 1 Ministries. And worship leaders – Passionate about practical biblical teaching, missional
living, music and worship, Pastors Campbell and Amanda Lumbila serve as the spiritual and cultural
architects at Kingdom Life Church. They have served in ministry together for over a decade.

“Blessed Assurance” is a live, dramatic delivery of John’s letter to the churches along with new contemporary Christian songs grounded in the text. John challenges us with 5 tests of authentic faith which will encourage, challenge, and bless each person. John draws a clear line between the light of real, Spirit indwelled faith and the darkness of a false profession. Everyone deserves the opportunity to test themselves. A love offering will be collected.
