Who should Attend?
Couples' Encounter Weekends are for married Christian couples who are seeking to grow and advance in serving together as one in ministry. Since this is an advanced HSE weekend, which builds on previous Encounter Weekend teachings, both husband and wife must have previously attended an Encounter Weekend.
Couples' Encounter Weekends are cloistered weekends. It is necessary to attend all aspects of the weekend. We encourage guests to arrive on-time and stay until dismissal on Sunday. If you are unable to attend the full weekend, please plan to attend at another time.
6:30 - 7:15 PM Arrival and check-in

Couples should supply their own bed linens and toiletry products (ie: towels, shampoo/conditioner, hairdryer, etc). Special needs accommodations are available upon request email us.
