What’s the cost?

When you apply for your Marriage Encounter Weekend, a registration fee is required to hold your reservation (amount is stated on the application form). We accept the following forms of payment.

Deposit Payment Using Credit/Debit Card or PayPal:
On the application form, select this option, click “Next” and complete your secure payment online.

Deposit Payment Using Personal Check:
Select this option at the bottom of the application form and click “Next.” You will then receive an email from our processing team with addressing and mailing details. Please note that your Weekend application will only be considered valid and processed when your registration check is received, so it is important that you mail your check in time for us to receive it within one week of receiving your application for processing to occur. If we do not receive your check within that timeframe, we will call you regarding your payment.

If you are unable to attend the Weekend for which you originally register, please notify us and your registration can be transferred to a future Weekend event.

Contributing to the Cost of Your Weekend

The per couple fair market value of your Marriage Encounter Weekend ranges from $375 to $515, depending on prevailing lodging and catering costs in each location. On Sunday afternoon of your Marriage Encounter Weekend, you will be given the opportunity to make a confidential free will contribution to help Marriage Encounter pay for the lodging and catering costs of your Weekend. Weekend contributions can be made by cash, credit/debit card, or current/post-dated check(s).

Because Marriage Encounter does not receive outside funding, we rely on Weekend contributions for the program to continue, and we very much appreciate your financial help. Your free will contribution is strictly confidential and decided upon by the two of you in the privacy of your hotel room. Your financial circumstances, however, should not hold you back from attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend. Your Marriage Encounter Weekend is yours regardless of a contribution.

Planning Ahead for Your Weekend Contribution:  If you would like to budget for a Weekend contribution prior to attending your Weekend, please feel free to email us at info@godlovesmarriage.org and the team presenting your Weekend will provide you with the fair market value per couple of your Weekend so you can plan ahead and budget to make your Weekend contribution.
