Marriage Offerings from the Allender Center

Do you long to grow intimacy and understanding in your relationship but don’t know where to start? Are you spending more time together but finding you have less connection with each other? The Allender Center is excited to announce brand new offerings to deepen intimacy and enrich your relationship – whether you’re in a committed relationship, dating, or have been married for several years. Give yourself and your partner the gift of connection and hope in this season.


Marriage Enrichment Retreat

The Marriage Retreat from The Allender Center is more than a breathtaking vacation getaway to escape the realities of your day-to-day lives. This weekend is an invitation to step into an intentional space where you will deepen your connection to one another. You and your spouse will have the opportunity to share your stories with one another in new ways, listen with a fresh perspective, and return home with tools that will help you engage with one another with more honor and delight.

Through skillful teaching and guided activities led by Dr. Dan Allender, Becky Allender, Dr. Steve Call and Lisa Call, you and your spouse will focus on your own relationship in an interactive experience centered on each other (no small groups here).
