Marriage Retreat

The Becoming One Marriage Retreat is an amazing opportunity for couples to focus on their marriage with the hope of making it everything God intended it to be. The retreat runs from Friday evening to Sunday morning and is designed to guide married and premarital couples through the pathways to a successful marriage. Built on a solid, Biblical foundation, this unique retreat provides practical insight into the very first institution God ever created with innovative strategies and constructs. If there is one thing every married couple has in common, it is a desire for their relationship to be the best it can possibly be. The Becoming One Marriage Retreat helps with that desire. Listen to these comments made by couples who have recently attended Becoming One.

Here are a few things you can expect on a Becoming One weekend.

  • A Biblical foundation and understanding of marriage including the source of all tensions in marital relationships.

  • The section entitled Relationship Killers provides insight on not only the most obvious threats to marriage, but also the more subtle but just as dangerous ones.
  • One of the more powerful segments explores the Biblical characteristics of both husbands and wives and how important it is that we understand these features.
