Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Is there a refund policy in the event the couple has to cancel. No, there is no refund, however, your registration is transferrable to another couple.

2. Can I bring our child(ren)?
Sorry, but our staff cannot care for children during the weekend. Besides, you and your spouse need a break from parenting and just focus on strengthening your "parenting team." Please look for someone to care for your kids while you're gone--maybe you can trade weekends with another couple.

3. Is this just for couples who have big problems?
No, quite the contrary. This is for couples who want to better adjust to normal challenges and otherwise capitalize on their strengths to enhance their relationship. Couples who face severe challenges may well benefit (some spouses confided that it saved their marriages) and we do offer some support for those seeking some extra attention, but this is mainly to just make your good relationship even better.

4. Do we have to share about our relationship with other people?
No, you never have to talk about your couple's particular situation with other couples. We arrange it so partners can just talk with each other freely. However, you may well find out how common certain challenges are and want to compare notes with other couples on your own.

5. Will there be a lot of sessions?
No. However, the sessions will be facilitated by our presenters. Because whatever you practice and share together is what you will gain the most from, the emphasis is on doing, not listening.

6. Are my spouse and I going to have some time just to ourselves?
Yes! Friday evening and Saturday there will be intermittent breaks.

7. Is this sponsored by the Church?
Yes, it is sponsored by the Marriage Ministry of Antioch Christian Fellowship.

8. Why is it so expensive?
Quality venues with sufficient amenities are quite costly, and the Marriage Ministry wants to ensure that every couple experience a weekend extend

9. Do we have to attend everything?
Again, no one will be knocking on doors and checking to see that everyone is in a scheduled event. We do ask that you attend most of the main sessions on Saturday, for the sake of the energy of the group. But please do what will enhance your marriage--you are welcome to enjoy a little quality time before checking out for the day.

10. I want to go but my spouse doesn't. What can I do?
Spouses tend to be wary of situations where others may side with their mate against them on points of disagreement. And let's face it--how often we want to have our spouse read a book or go to a program, saying "you need to read this or go to this," because we hope the material will "fix" our spouse and prove that they are wrong! The very fact that you want to attend means that you think the program looks inviting to you, which may mean it "agrees" with you in your perennial complaints against your spouse. Understandably, your mate wants nothing to do with this.

Pratt Prism Productions will be onsite to provide photography. Full payment is due the day photos are taken. Please be prepared to pay onsite.
