What is a Weekend Getaway?

A Weekend Getaway is a marriage conference uniquely designed to enrich your relationship.

For most couples it’s a chance to reconnect, re-establish the foundation and rekindle romance.
For others, it’s a fresh start. For some, it will be the weekend that saves a marriage.

Wherever you’re at in your relationship, it’s a weekend to remember. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm, even fun.
You’ll hear from real couples doing real life together… God’s way. You’ll be given time to process what you’re learning.
And together, you’ll make a plan for a marriage that lasts a lifetime.

“Three weeks ago we had a conflict that nearly ended our 10 year marriage. This weekend has given us enlightenment, hope, encouragement and strength to re-focus our marriage. We will be sharing our experiences with all who may benefit from our growth.”

Victoria Conference

“I didn’t know what to expect having never attended anything like this. I have been blown away by the wisdom, authenticity and truth that has been presented. Thank you for not talking from stereotypes or making us feel guilty if we aren’t the …Christian stereotypical wife/husband. Thank you for your honesty.”
