God works through strong, healthy marriages to raise up spiritual champions and pour blessings through generations. Through the family unit, He works to transform society. 

In Cuba, many couples struggle to understand and live out God’s beautiful design for marriage. Most cannot afford weddings, and marriage has come to be viewed more casually, leading to breakdowns in Cuban society. 

Bay Hope Church has partnered with our sister church in Guantanamo, Cuba to change that. We will be hosting a marriage retreat for Cuban couples, to teach how marriage is a symbol for the extravagant love that Christ has for His bride, the Church. Our retreat will culminate in a massive wedding celebration for these couples in Cuba who have never experienced what it is to be the bride and groom.

Join us for this incredibly special mission!

  • DONATE new makeup, costume jewelry, perfume samples, grooms attire, shoes, beauty, and hair products
  • SPONSOR the retreat, wedding, wedding feast, or honeymoon night for a couple via monetary donation payable to Bay Hope Church.
