for Military Couples


Register Here


Join military couples from around the country for an enriching date night! Because of the sacrificial nature of their lives, military couples have a unique perspective on suffering, endurance, and hope. This date night series seeks to affirm those special gifts, and help strengthen military couples and families especially those struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The Military Date Night Series will feature the powerful witness of three military couples on the topics of interpersonal relationship, family and community, and prayer and faith. This series will launch on November 11, in honor of Veteran’s Day, and will remain available on demand in the WTL App.
