About the Conference

Take a step back from the busyness of life with a weekend away designed to enrich, refresh, and re-energize your marriage at Marriage GetAway, a Christian marriage retreat at Glen Eyrie Castle.

Through both group discussions and unstructured time together as a couple, you’ll be encouraged by God’s presence and the grandeur of the setting to unwind and invest in your marriage. Spend time exploring our 700 acre property, relaxing, and making memories you’ll remember for years to come.

Marriage GetAway is uniquely different from other Christian marriage retreats. You’ll be treated like royalty – including 4-course meals, romantic evenings in the Castle, and other fun surprises. Over the course of the weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to connect and learn from other couples as well as the program hosts. This retreat is intentionally kept small so guests can connect on a deeper level, and is perfect for couples of all ages.

The Glen Eyrie property provides the necessary space away to develop and mature the spiritual legacy you and your spouse will leave behind.

What to Expect

  • Learn to focus on your strengths as a couple through group discussions and time alone together.
  • Improve communication and conflict resolution skills.
  • Discover God’s unique design for your marriage. Prayer and devotional time.
  • Romantic surprises and an optional team-building activity.
