Marriage is a roller coaster of ups and downs. And yet, the Bible tells us that this, among all human relationships, is the reflection of Christ’s love for and intimacy with His church. Come explore this great mystery with us as we unlock biblical truths to realize God’s best in our marriages.


Couples on the Coast is an outgrowth of Cc: (Christ centered) Marriage, a ministry of Fellowship Community Church in Kemah, Texas.  This conference is the vision and the fruit of five years of prayer and planning.

It is our prayer that each one who attends will be equipped, encouraged, and empowered in their marriage through the transforming power of God’s Word.
