Instep :: Darrell & Jan Parrish

We have walked with many couples in marriage over our more than 20 years of married life. Our desire is for people to show up simply as they are. To be honest with where you are in life is the root of being able to walk forward in a path of flourishing, whether that means you arrive at Scott River Lodge in a "good place" or at a profoundly difficult time, our goal is to provide a safe environment for you to walk in step with God, yourself, and your spouse. Our prayer for our time together is that you will be able to experience the grace of God and the safety of community in a place that cherishes who you are and where you are in your marriage.
