Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do we have to stay at the conference hotel? Or can we stay at home and commute?

We highly recommend that you take some time away as a couple to BREATHE, relax and enjoy the Marriage Conference by staying overnight. If you are not able due to certain circumstances, then do your best to get the most of your time together by minimizing distractions. Be intentional by clearing your schedule, avoid checking emails, find someone to help you with your children, etc. This is a special time for you and your spouse to focus on each other and your relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will childcare be provided? 

We are unable to provide childcare during the conference.  We ask that children not be brought to the conference as this is intended to be a special time away for couples to focus on each other. Nursing infants are welcome. We will be recording and filming the speakers at this event; therefore we ask that crying infants be taken out of the conference room. There are many benches in the lobby areas and a breakout room designated for nursing moms.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the “date night” on the Conference schedule?

The conference ends at 5pm on Saturday. Saturday evening is designated as a “date night”. We recommend that you and your spouse take some time to unpack the conference by going for a special dinner and a fun evening out. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What will the sessions include? 

Talks by the speakers, engaging audio and video clips, and time for short conversations between you and your spouse.
