Celebrating Marriage God's Way

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. Married and engaged couples of all ages are encouraged to attend.

Schedule a Marriage Conference
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.
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 $10 per person fee for conference workbooks. When held in a church, a simple dinner and a continental breakfast are coordinated by the church. Pastors usually ask attendees to pay for their workbooks and food costs. We suggest churches charge $20 per registrant to cover costs and increase attendees' personal investment in the marriage weekend. Childcare provision is left to the discretion of the church.
We provide advertising materials and a conference planning guide.

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