Marriage Retreat w/ Dave Harvey FAQ:

  • Tell us about the marriage material?

Drawing from the material from his books, as well as other content developed for these events, Dave has traveled within the US and abroad delivering gospel-centered marriage messages in the context of retreats, seminars and conferences.

  • What are some of the session topics Dave includes in his events?

Sin (Part I & II):  Marriage is the union of two people who arrive at the altar toting some surprisingly large luggage.  Often it gets opened right there on the honeymoon, sometimes it waits for the week after.  The Bible calls it sin and understanding its influence can make all the difference for a man and woman who are building a life together.  This session is about understanding the real problems within marriage that we might truly comprehend and experience the life-transforming power of the gospel.

Sex:  If you’re married, sex matters.  Yet far too often, it just doesn’t seem to work well.  Be it past sins, present expectations, or future anxieties, sex sometimes divides more than it unites.  Through a discreet but honest study of 1 Cor 7: 1 – 5, this session will examine God’s intention behind the glorious gift of married sexuality.

Mercy:  “As Christians, we have received the mercy of God.  But that reality makes an extraordinary claim upon our marriage.  Mercy establishes ministry as a primary goal for marriage.  From the heights of Luke 6, we will together explore what it means to “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6: 36) and how we can apply mercy to see our marriage transformed.”

Marriage and the Captivity of Closure: Life delivers complexity. Growing older together leaves many situations open-ended. People sin against us and we sin against each other. Things don’t resolve. We crave closure, sometimes to point of distraction—even idolatry. Healthy marriages understand that closure, at least in this life, is overrated. We gain the kind of closure that transforms by looking not to the present, but to the beauty of the past (at the cross) and to the hope of the future (the new heavens and new earth).

 Grace:  Only by grace can we see the reality of where change needs to happen in our marriage.  But grace also trains us.  Through an exploration of Titus 2: 11-15, we will discover how grace works to improve marriages by supplying God’s power to renounce old patterns, to see Jesus more clearly and to fight sin with greater success.

Contentment:  Many marriages are wrecked by disappointed expectations and unfulfilled dreams.  What does a couple do when marriage is not going the way they expected?  By examining Phil 4: 11-13, we will discover what happens when the gospel unlocks the secret of contentment and sets it loose in our marriage.

 Forgiveness: Resentments are subtle and sneaky. Marriages often unravel over the impact of unforgiveness. But forgiveness is often approached as a relational lever and not a transforming application of the gospel. This message is both pointed and practical and invite the hearer to understand that forgiven sinners should forgive sin.

Design:  One extraordinary and surprising truth lays near the center of every healthy, gospel-loving, bible-informed marriage – marriage is more than me. Through a study of Gen 2 and Ephesians 5, we will look at how marriage exists for something outside of itself.  When our marriage is set in the context of God’s bigger plan, it inspires us with fresh faith for the present and new hope for the future.
