For highly stressed couples, couples contemplating divorce, or couples seeking a deeper connection.

Did you know that traditional Marriage Counseling has about a 35% rate of success in restoring and healing marriages? Marriage Intensives, on the other hand, succeed with over 80% of couples who complete the experience. While traditional counseling takes months, a Marriage Intensive over two to three days can clear obstacles and develop relational skills with immediate results.

Marriage Intensives are also a great way to deepen connection and intimacy in your marriage. Hope Weekend provides tools to help couples deepen their bond and recapture those “in-love” feelings.

The vision for our Hope Weekend Marriage Retreat is simple: We want marriages to be healed and restored so more children will grow up in happier, healthier homes. 

The average cost of a divorce is over $30,000. Our marriage retreat, comparatively, is only $2,000 per couple and we have an 84% success rate with all of our couples (including those who have already started divorce proceedings).

In addition to Hope Weekend, we also offer a one-on-one marriage intensive. The intensive, pairs a trained pastoral counselor or relationship coach with one couple for two or three full days of exploration, education, and skills development. As a couple learns new tools for communication, intimacy building, and conflict resolution those skills are put into immediate use to build the lasting marriage both desire.

To set up a one-on-one intensive at a time that works best for you, you can contact us through email at or by calling 912.399.5223. Once your time has been set, please register at the link below to receive your welcome information.
