The cost to attend your Marriage Encounter experience includes the following:
- When you apply to attend a Marriage Encounter event, a non-refundable registration fee of $50/couple is required. (This 2019 Special Offer is a 50% DISCOUNT from our normal fee of $100 to celebrate Worldwide Marriage Encounter’s 50th Anniversary!) This $50/couple registration fee is not refundable, but can be applied to another experience if you need to reschedule your experience for a future date.
- In addition, the required all-inclusive cost per couple for lodging and food for your desired event can be found on its specific event page. Please note that differences in lodging and food costs vary by venue and location.
Your registration is not complete until your registration fee and all-inclusive cost per couple for lodging and food have been received by Lutheran Marriage Encounter. We offer secure payment online at time of application using your credit/debit card or PayPal. Payment also can be made offline by check within one week of submitting your application. Financial assistance may be available for those in need. Please note your need for financial assistance on your application where indicated and choose “Payment by Check” – or contact us prior to applying.
The all-inclusive per couple cost of each event is refundable if you cancel on or before the deadline shown for each event. Refund requests for the all-inclusive per couple cost after the refund deadline date shown on each event’s page cannot be accommodated.
On Sunday afternoon of your experience, you will have an opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to Lutheran Marriage Encounter. Your contribution will enable us to continue this ministry, expand it, and provide the necessary funds to financially assist those couples who cannot afford the full amount for lodging and meals at our Marriage Encounter events. Your contribution 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 these contributions for Marriage Encounter to continue.
