Marriage Retreat 2019

Opening Doors to an Exceptional Marriage

No one ever said, “I am hoping for an average marriage” ... Just the opposite!

We all desire an exceptional marriage. Unfortunately, at times we are not willing to do the hard work to accomplish it. We avoid specific topics that would help us in loving our spouse and the Lord in the way we should. This retreat weekend is designed to help identify some of those “Conversation Stoppers” we avoid, helping us to not only unlock, but to open the doors to an exceptional marriage relationship - a marriage that is as it was designed to be!

The beautiful mountain setting of South Lake Tahoe offers endless opportunities. For the outdoor enthusiast, there are mountain trails to be explored by hike or bike. Strolling the beach offers some spectacular photo opportunities. If you are the indoor type there are many theaters, museums, galleries, coffee houses. Or a nap by the Tallic Lodge fireplace is always inviting. Marriage Retreat is located at the breath taking Zephyr Point Conference Center in South Lake Tahoe. With an elevation of 6200 feet and a half-mile of Lake Tahoe Shoreline, Zephyr Point is one of the most beautiful retreat locations in the world.
