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 $1,500 per couple (does not include food or lodging) and we have an 84% success rate with all of our couples (including those who have already started divorce proceedings).

Hope Weekend provides specific, practical, attainable skills to help couples:

This skills-based approach recognizes that there are basic emotional and relational needs common to all human beings. Relationships can be torn apart by past hurts and brokenness as well as by unmet emotional needs in the present. For more information contact or call 904.374.6365.

Registration ends at 5 pm on the Monday prior to the class.

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.

Lee Brown is a Pastoral Counselor and is available for one on one marriage intensives by appointment and may be contacted through: or by calling 904.374.6365
