RefineUs Marriage conference at Ginghamsburg

TIPP CITY — Justin and Trisha Davis, founders of RefineUs Ministries, are bringing their dynamic marriage conference to Ginghamsburg Church, 6759 S County Rd 25A in Tipp City, on Friday and Saturday, February 9 and 10. The couple has been featured on shows such as Focus on the Family, Family Life Today and other nationally syndicated programs and at conferences like Catalyst.

They know all too well the dangers of settling for an ordinary marriage. Their own failure to recognize the warning signs almost resulted in the end of their marriage, their family and their ministry. Through powerful, engaging stories with disarming transparency, they give a glimpse into the slow fade that plagues so many marriages, as well as give couples tangible ways to obtain the extraordinary marriage that they hoped for from the very beginning.
