thrive marriage Conference

Have you ever wondered if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy? Gary Thomas expounds and unpacks this question in his book Sacred Marriage. We here at East Side Baptist Church value God-centered Christian Marriages and we want to personally invite you to our 2nd Annual Thrive Marriage Conference coming up in just a few weeks on February 15 & 16!

Gary Thomas, writer-in-residence at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, author of fifteen books, and the Gold Medallion Award-winning Authentic Faith, will be our keynote speaker for the weekend! Joining him will be Linda Price, Marriage & Family Counselor from Central Church in Collierville, Tennessee. Our Lead Pastor, Rick Gering and his wife Cindy Gering, will also be sharing some great insights with us on marriage. In addition to Biblical teaching there will authentic worship led by our own Kenyon Savage and Keri Hake from Transformation Church in Tulsa, OK.

Below you will find a schedule of events for the weekend. This conference made a huge impact in the lives of the couples last year here at East Side and we know God can do that again this year! Feel free to call our church office if you have any questions.
