Two common words…but one incredible idea. As married couples, our love is to show a dying world the embodiment of God’s sacrificial, compassion and grace-filled affection for mankind in the way that He designed it—not on a whim, nor haphazardly—but with thoughtful, intentionality and purpose.
The NDCBF 2021 Intentional Love Marriage Conference was created to promote and reinforce the Biblical worldview of marriage. Throughout the conference, we hope to identify the common marital challenges and offer practical steps to overcoming them in order grow spiritually as individuals and as couples. Our prayer is that as Christian marriages are strengthened, they begin to both glorify God, as well as become positive examples to other married couples and singles who desire marriage.

Join us on Friday for a laid-back evening where you’ll hear from couples and singles on their thoughts and experiences with marriage. Enjoy a time of praise & worship. Get in some laughs with our comedian. Then get a sneak peek from our keynote speakers.
Saturday, July 17, 2021 8:15am-12:00pm (CST)
On Saturday, after a focused time of praise and prayer, we will dig into God’s view of marriage—both in instruction and by providing tools for practical application.
We’re excited for what God will do in individual lives and marriages through this event.
