Celebrating Marriage God's Way

In order to strengthen the couples in your church, we have developed a strong, biblical and practical marriage conference.

This conference lays out God's original design for marriage, oneness, based on four scriptural principles: leaving, cleaving, love and respect. Couples can expect biblical instruction, humor, short video clips, drama and couple interaction. In addition, all attendees will be provided with a full color notebook so they can record and apply the principles taught in each session. Married and engaged couples of all ages are encouraged to attend.

Example Schedule

6:00 – 9:30 p.m. Dinner & Session One

Schedule a Marriage Conference

Conference Venue
The marriage weekend can be held at your church or in a retreat setting. Bringing a group to a retreat center has its benefits, but so does the more affordable and convenient option of hosting the event in the local church.

Conference Leaders
Eddie Thompson, senior consultant for Marriage and Family Ministry, leads this conference. Eddie, a former North Carolina pastor, has been married to Janet for more than 30 years and together they have led this conference in hundreds of North Carolina churches.

We charge a $30 per couple fee for conference registration, which is billed to the church following the conference. When held in a church, a simple dinner and a continental breakfast are coordinated by the church. Pastors usually ask attendees to pay the conference fee and food costs. We suggest churches charge $45 per couple to cover costs and increase attendees' personal investment in the marriage weekend. Childcare provision is left to the discretion of the church.

Conference Helps
We provide advertising materials and a conference planning guide.

How to Schedule

*Note: A minimum requirement of 12 couples is required for a marriage weekend event.
