BIMR, Building Intimacy Marriage Retreats, began in 2003 as a marriage retreat with 13 couples. The small group of couples got together in the Lake of the Ozarks, MO with the idea of just enjoying each other in fellowship while at the same time working on being better in their marriages. These 12 years have been marvelous, and the family of married couples that has sprung forth from that very first retreat is absolutely priceless! Hundreds of couples over the 12 years have passed through this ministry.
BIMR is hailed for its relaxed, liberal environment. Setting is very important. In other words, wherever we go, it MUST be GORGEOUS! There is nothing like arriving at a beautiful location with your spouse knowing you are going to share an incredible time together.
BIMR is committed to making sure our events are hosted at a site that articulates stunning beauty. We strive for it to be a place that you will not soon forget.
All of our events are centered in Christian biblical teaching and principles that focus on engaging the couples or singles if they are present. Whether utilizing practical application, role play demonstration, or just plain old-fashioned communication, we encourage spouses to lovingly approach issues that could possibly hinder their connection.
