Marriage reveals something of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality—the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners, the eternal romance between Christ and his bride. Join us for a weekend of gospel preaching and encouragement for our marriages.

Pastors and their wives - join us for Gospel-Saturated Ministry.


Ray Ortlund received a Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. Ray was ordained by Lake Avenue Congregational Church, Pasadena, California, in 1975. He served as pastor of Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee until 2019, as a Council member with The Gospel Coalition, and as the President of Renewal Ministries. Ray has been married to Jani Giles Ortlund for forty happy years, and they have thirteen delightful grandchildren.

As an author and a speaker, one of Jani Ortlund's chief goals in life is to connect women with the Word of God.
