Cost 2020-05-21T12:15:22-05:00


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 $100 per couple is required. This 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 costs 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.

Financial assistance may be available for those in need. If you would like to inquire about financial assistance, please contact us prior to applying.


The all-inclusive lodging/food cost per couple for each event is refundable if you cancel on or before the deadline shown for each event. Refund requests received for the all-inclusive lodging/food cost per couple 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. This 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.


If you would like to give a Marriage Encounter experience to a special married husband and wife in honor of their wedding anniversary or another special occasion, you can do so online here – we thank you for helping make marriages happier!
