The divorce rate is skyrocketing and fear, loneliness and stress have become more prevalent in homes.

Many churches are struggling to navigate the tension and find balance between gathering in-person while honoring the safety guidelines of COVID. 

We know marriages need help. 

Because of this, we’ve created a simple way for churches to minister to marriages while navigating the tension and logistics of gathering.

Marriage & Go

A Guided Online Marriage Retreat for Churches Designed To Serve Marriages That Need Restoration and Re-engagement Without the Logistics of Gathering.

Bring this marriage retreat to your church! 

How It Works

How It Works

We partner with church marriage ministry pastors and choose 1 or 2 weekends to make Marriage & Go available to your congregation.

We handle logistics

SET A DATE(S)

As a church, you'll participate in Marriage & Go together online. Couples book their own hotel reservations and choose where they want to go. If they want to go as a small group to the same hotel, they can choose that. If they'd prefer to do it by themselves, thats great too! 

Our team handles the online registration and administrative logistics. A specific link is created for only your church and since it's online, it's a no limit capacity marriage retreat. No need for your admin and facility teams to think through logistics about where or how to gather! Our team will be available throughout the weekend to help with any tech support issues.

We'll email each registered couple the details and guide them through how Marriage & Go works: the schedule, what to pack, what to expect, and a log in to get started. The marriage material is a mix of videos, devotionals, activities, and worksheet for reconnecting.

Church covers cost

couples cover cost

Couples pay for their own weekend accommodations

Base fee covers the cost of registration, communication and facilitating the Marriage & Go program for up to 50 couples. 

Additional packages per 10 couples can be added for $500. These costs will be invoiced to the church at the completion of Marriage & Go. 








Couples pay for their own weekend accommodations + 50 Marriage & Go registration fee which goes towards the church's base deposit fee/cost of $2500. We will deduct all registration fees against the deposit given. 

If 50 couples register, we reimburse the church the full $2500. If less than 50 couples register, we give you the net of registration fees ($2500 minus all couples registration fees). Example: if 25 couples register, we would return $1250 to the church along with a list of those that registered.

We look forward to partnering with you in this experience. Our hope and prayer is that we can strengthen and encourage the marriages in our faith community and equip churches throughout our whole community.

We believe that good news and good resources should flow in all directions. If as a church you would like to sponsor an under resourced church, let us know and we can help you pay it forward by covering a cost for another church to participate.

Inside the Marriage Material

Bring this marriage retreat to your church! 

FRIDAY NIGHT

If you've ever felt unsure how to navigate your marriage's hurts (Hi! You're welcome here!), this one's for you. We're going to take a step back and start with, what kind of marriage do you desire? 

First, we will discuss how the origin of relational love, hope, and goodness comes from God. We are meant for real relationships, and He wants to wake us up to His goodness and experience deep connection and understanding within our marriage. 

Next, we'll discuss why real relationships are risky. It's one thing to talk about marriage, it's a whole different thing to be doing marriage, right? God is inviting you into something exciting and risky - to step into a relationship and experience yourself and your spouse in a new way. There is a desire in us to be both known and loved. Still, we get stuck because we're unsure how to navigate the hurt we've experienced. 

That's where we come in. We'll help you re-connect with one another in a new and exciting way. We will guide you through every step of the way and help you recognize your hearts and the desires you have for your marriage. 

Saturday morning

Now that you know God is asking you to step into the waterfall of your marriage, let's talk about how to experience this process. 

All marriages are sequels. It's the merging of two stories into one that makes is messy. It's scary, mysterious, and risky as you bring your own history and brokenness. 

We each have a way of dealing with ourselves and our own battles that either create separation or brings us together in our marriage. God invites us to examine ourselves, to move past our old self, family history, and systems, and create a new narrative of oneness with our spouse. However, if our marriages are in survival mode, we have a limited perception of our available resources.

In this session, we navigate what's going on inside each of us without shame and judgment. Once we understand how God sees us, with softness and grace, we can look at the battles going on inside of us without defensiveness and our marriage can begin to heal. 

Saturday Night

What good is our brokenness if it's not actually leading us towards a more safe and intimate relationship? 

Jesus wants to be current in our marriage. He wants to travel with us through the storms and put things back together so that we are fulfilled. 

In this session, we demonstrate how to do ask for and receive forgiveness from your spouse. 

Sunday morning

If we can offer hospitality to each other within our marriage, it grows in oneness.

Hospitality has the power to heal wounds. In this session, we talk about the goodness and challenges we experience when we make room for one another. 

1 week follow up

We will send couples a follow up session one week later to check-in on how their marriage is doing.
