At Hillsong Church, we are so grateful to have such exemplary leaders in Brian and Bobbie Houston. They are an example to all of us of what a Biblical, Christ-centred marriage looks like. This year Bobbie turned 60 and Brian put together a message to her about their relationship. It is thoughtful, inspiring and praiseworthy. We hope you can learn as much about a healthy marriage from his message to her as we did. Watch as Brian demonstrates what it means to honour and love your wife, through 40 years of marriage.

Over the course of 40 years Brian and Bobbie have come to truly represent what a Biblical marriage looks like. Ephesians 5:21-25 tells us that in marriage we are to “submit to one another out of reverence for Christ” and that husbands are to “love their wives as their own bodies”. Bobbie has supported Brian as the “reluctant leader” as he describes her and Brian has loved her as he loves himself. They have taken care of each other, nurtured each other’s dreams, submitted to one another and loved each other throughout 40 years of marriage and 33 years of pastoring Hillsong Church. We are grateful to them for living out a Godly marriage as an example for us all to follow, as they in turn follow Christ.
