What Is a “Marriage Intensive” and How Does It Work?

Our small group marriage intensives are more than a couples’ weekend retreat. They are intimate, personalized coaching sessions designed to help you identify the personal and relational issues confronting your marriage. Our trained marriage coaching couples will spend over 20+ hours with you and two other struggling couples to work through marriage building exercises to grow the intimacy in your marriage. Research says our marriage Intensive format is three times more effective than traditional pastoral or marital counseling. That’s because they’re done in a small group setting … over a concentrated period of time … led by a husband and wife coaching couple … using a Bible-based marriage curriculum that leads you through the process of repairing your marriage. If you’re feeling apprehensive about a group format, we encourage you to push through your fear … we’ve found that couples can’t stop talking about how helpful being in a small group was for them.

We designed these three-day intensives to get you away from the distractions of your everyday routines so you can concentrate on you and your marriage … and our intensive experience doesn’t end when you leave. We’ll lead you through a 15-week follow-up process to help you review and apply the information you learned during your intensive.

This is an incredible program. Something every married couple would benefit from whether they are having major problems or not! It has been transforming for me and my husband! We still have a long way to go, but the fear buttons section alone is worth the intensive!

- M & R - Cherry Hill, NJ

My husband and I really enjoyed this past weekend. It rekindled flames and opened our hearts and minds to a new way of treating each other. Your honest personal accounts of love and struggle prove that we can do this! With God’s help all is possible. Though we have many struggles outside of our immediate influence, we realize that our partnership with God's guidance is insurmountable. Thank you for all you did and we look forward to you being there for us as we continue our journey.

- I & A - Lancaster, PA

I am so very thankful for The Marriage Hub. We are doing well, we have started over. New start, new marriage and we are building our foundation on God's Word, forgiveness, truth, honesty and forever. My husband has stated that he is going to win my heart back.

- A & J - Fairfax, VA

We are doing really, really well. The arguments have really diminished since the retreat. We attend church together on most Sundays. We continue to communicate more effectively and our love & marriage continues to flourish. It is a work in progress but we are happy most of the time! The retreat truly helped us break down communication barriers and come together as a couple whose communication had broken down. We are so very grateful to you and Marriage Intensives for the work that you led that brought our marriage back to life! I thank God that we are both always invested and willing to work on our marriage!!!!

- C & K - Woodbury, NY

Thank you so much for everything. My husband and I have started reading the Bible together and praying together. We are working on how we treat each other and on letting our walls down. We already scheduled a Weekend to Remember getaway for February and are making our marriage a priority. Last night we apologized to our son and daughter for not being a good example to them of what marriage can be and we told them that we are working to change that. Thank you again for allowing God to use your life experiences to reach hurting marriages!!

- T & D - Santa Barbara, CA

My husband and I attended a marriage intensive in March after being separated for 3 months. This intensive helped us in more ways than I can describe. It was the most practical and helpful marriage coaching/counseling we have ever received. We felt encouraged and hopeful after the weekend and then have further benefited from the heavy lifting activities in the weeks following. I would highly recommend these intensives to any married couple but especially those who are struggling or on the brink of divorce. It was an amazing experience and my husband and I are excited for our future together.

- A & M - Spokane, WA

This was a game changer and marital rescue. It resurrected our marriage from the ashes and breathed life into our lives. A month after our intensive, my husband was baptized! We are still taking baby steps forward in the recovery and rebuilding of our marriage through our heavy lifting exercises, but it wouldn’t have been possible without this experience and God’s grace! Thank you to all who make the intensives possible! They were worth the monetary investment as it brought healing to not only us as a married couple but to our children and household as well! 👍❤️

We’ve helped couples of all different ages, stages, numbers of years married, re-married, educational, vocational and faith walk backgrounds. They come because they’ve “lost that loving feeling” due to the stresses and strains of jobs, kids, finances, pornography or unfaithfulness. Years of disillusionment and unresolved hurt have eroded their ability to communicate and emotionally connect.
