World Wide Marriage Encounter:

The emphasis of Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a marriage enrichment program, is on communication between husband and wife, who spend a weekend together away from the distractions and the tensions of everyday life, to concentrate on each other. It's not a retreat, nor a marriage clinic, nor group sensitivity. It's a unique approach aimed at revitalizing Christian Marriage. This is a time for you and your spouse to be alone together. To rediscover each other and together focus on your relationship for an entire weekend. Every marriage deserves that kind of attention!
  • Rediscover the spark that was there on your wedding day!
  • Rediscover the best friend you had when you were first married!
  • Join the millions of couples worldwide who have learned how to keep their marriage vibrant and alive!



Retrouvaille (pronounced re-tro-vi with a long i.) is a French word meaning rediscovery. The Retrouvaille Program consists of a weekend experience combined with a series of 6-12 post-weekend sessions over 3 months. It provides the tools to help put your marriage in order again. The main emphasis of the program is on communication in marriage between husband and wife. It will give you the opportunity to rediscover each other and examine your lives together in a new and positive way.


Widowed, Separated or Divorced:  Brochure Part 1 and Part 2

Help for divorced, separated and widowed men and women-and children of divorce, parental separation and death-heal the grief of their loss and free them once again to love themselves, others and God. These individuals, in turn, offer a better quality of life to all those with whom they come in contact.

The lay ministers in the Beginning Experience ministry are "wounded healers" - specially trained men and women who are themselves widowed, separated or divorced, but further along in the grieving process.

In the youth and children's ministries, team members include young people or children whose parents have divorced, are separated, or have died.
