The weekend consists of a series of presentations given by three or four married couples who, just like you, have decided that their marriage is important. Couples will relate their experiences--the good, the bad, and the funny--and give you questions to ponder and discuss.
Couples are never asked to share any personal information with the group (beyond a basic introduction--names, years married, where you're from). The only sharing that occurs on a Marriage Encounter weekend is between you and your spouse.
Marriage Encounter is NOT a counseling session. The presenting team couples are not trained in marital or family counseling. Rather, they are married couples just like you who have a heart for healthy marriages and teach a proven method of communication.
Marriage Encounter is a Christian organization and married couples of any faith and/or denomination are welcome!
Marriage Encounter is a tool to help make good marriages great! It is designed to help you refresh and renew your marriage--to take it to an even deeper and more satisfying level. That isn't to say that it won't help a troubled marriage; but that is not the primary purpose.
(Accommodations are included in the cost of the weekend and will be reserved for you.)
