The entire trip is an intensive retreat that has built its foundation on solid relationship principles extracted from God’s own words. Many couples are often reluctant to take a marriage retreat, as they have doubts regarding the methods efficacy in resolving their issues. In most cases, the doubt stems from the couple thinking it’s shameful that they need the retreat in the first place.

  2. The retreat, particularly the counseling session will be personalized to each couple’s needs. Counselors work one-on-one with both spouses to address individual issues.
