25th- 28th 2019
Rome, GA


In the spring of 2012, it became very obvious that we were entering a season of change in both our professional and personal lives. God was doing something in our hearts and after a lengthy discernment process, we realized that we were being called to work together as a husband and wife team. We both share a passion for couples and between Katelyn's love for shooting and marketing and Michael's heart for serving and administration, we realized that we could make a pretty awesome team!! In January 2013, Michael resigned from his position as a youth pastor and we made a commitment to view our business as not only our job but also as our mission field. While we're still learning and growing as a team everyday, God has already done so many great things through this transition in our life. We're so excited to be a part of CONNECT again this year and we are anticipating another AWESOME retreat where God shows up and changes lives, marriages and businesses!!

from the hearts of Michael & Katelyn:
