Because of excellent response to our first CBF/GA Marriage Retreat in the fall of 2018, a second retreat is planned for September 18-20, at The Lodge on Lake Oconee, near Eatonton, Georgia.
Registration opens online May 1 at www.cbfga.org/marriage-retreat, with a deposit of $150 per couple due at time of registration.
Registration will end July 15.
Melody and Sam Harrell are leading this retreat, during which they will guide participants to use the Enneagram tool to explore how to bring greater awareness to marriage and family relationships.
The Enneagram is a model of the human psyche which seeks to define nine personality types that are represented by the points on a geometric figure called an Enneagram. Understanding one’s personality type and how different personality types connect and interact is considered to be one way of deepening relationships and encouraging deeper spirituality and self-understanding.
Sam and Melody Harrell have extensive training and experience in leading groups in the study of the Enneagram, and we are excited that they have agreed to lead us in this retreat.
They both were born to missionary parents in East Africa and have spent most of their lives working in that context.
In the last twenty years, working under the auspices of CBF’s Global Missions, they have engaged the Kenyan context through
the ministries of Africa Exchange, a non-profit organization they founded in 1998 which continues under joint local direction today. Melody currently works as a certified Spiritual Director, and Sam serves as Associate Coordinator for Global Missions at CBF Global.
