It has become a ministry that The Torch, located on Cannon Bridge Road in Demorest, GA, has been hosting since 2018. This year it is “God Is Writing Our Story”.

“It is easy to become so involved in day-to-day lives that there isn’t time for couples to spend together. Sometimes, it is difficult to have a conversation together,” Caleb McCallister, Worship Pastor at The Torch talked about this year’s Marriage Conference.

McCallister said this year will be entertaining with prizes to win, games to play, and a lot of fun involved. “Anyone can come – married, engaged, dating, and singles – it’s all about investing in the relationship.”

This year the featured speakers are Anthony Braswell & Shannen Fields-Braswell. Shannen Fields Braswell is an award-winning actress, producer, model, and inspirational speaker. Anthony Braswell is a pastor, inspirational speaker, content creator, and leadership coach.

Fields-Braswell was cast in the lead female role in the movie Facing the Giants (2006) as Brooke Taylor. She also played the lead role as Kerri Stein in the powerful pro-life movie Order of Rights.

Shannon and Anthony both lost their late spouses to terminal illnesses within eight weeks of each other. The couple decided to heal forward and make each day count.

As a couple, they love to share what God is doing in their lives. They’ve launched a ministry, “Uncover Marriage”, to equip couples to experience the marriage they have always wanted.

“Marriage is a lifelong choice – a commitment to be together through the good times and the not-so-good times,” McCallister added. “You don’t have to be having difficulty in your marriage to come. That is a misconception. Attending this conference is saying, ‘I’m placing my marriage as a priority’.”

The day will involve games, big giveaways, food, entertainment, speakers and so much more.

For McCallister, it is all about making marriage the most successful that it can be. “My wife Liza and I understand that our marriage is a work in progress. We want to give it all we’ve got.”

You do not have to be a member of The Torch to attend the conference.

“It is a community event. Last year, we had 206 to register and ended up with 250 because many people registered the day of the event.”

Many businesses donate prizes and food for the day. McCallister emphasized the importance of living in a community that invests in marriage.

“When you see couples who have been married forever, you always want to ask, ‘How do they do it?'” McCallister said. “It is a daily choice to stay married.”
