Haven of Hope Marriage Retreats

Haven of Hope Marriage Retreats

We invite you to pull away from your everyday life and spend time focusing on your spouse, your marriage, and Jesus, the One who loves you and wants your marriage to be all it could be.  

Virginia and David Hallenbeck


Virginia and David Hallenbeck have been blessed with 11 beautiful acres in Newark, Ohio.  God has turned the heartache of divorce into a passion to help struggling couples through their home and property. Their primary focus is on pastors and their wives but is also open to any struggling couple through a pastor’s recommendation. Couples can choose a directed or undirected retreat.  David has his Master of Divinity degree in pastoral care and counseling and is a certified grief counselor.


This place was truly a haven for me in a time of need.  David and Virginia have created places around their property were I could sit and enjoy the peace.  It was a time for me to reconnect with God and myself.
