Equip your marriage to go the distance. Your marriage will never be the same!

EE14Web 240

2018 Dates: March 9-11, October 19-21

Marriage is more than saying “I do.” Your wedding will last for a moment, but a successful marriage will last a lifetime. Start your new life on the path to a successful marriage by attending Engaged Encounter at Warm Beach Camp.

Engaged Encounter is a quiet and relaxed weekend for couples who are contemplating marriage. It is designed to equip you with the necessary tools to ensure that your marriage is one of those that “goes the distance.”

Arrival: 7pm, Friday at Cascadian Lodge Lobby
Departure: 12:30pm, Sunday

What is Engaged Encounter?

  • A weekend to spend time planning, learning, and committing your future to God’s standards
  • Honest sharing by a panel of three Christian couples
  • Non-threatening… your privacy will be respected
  • Practical experience of self-discovery and mutual communication
  • Discovery of biblical principles for healthy marriage
  • Enjoy comfortable accommodations in Cascadian Lodge and fresh, prepared meals

Do we have to be “formally” engaged to attend?
No. You are very welcome even if you are “engaged to be engaged.” Also, Engaged Encounter is for couples of any age.

Who leads it?
Engaged Encounter is led by three Christian couples (a junior couple, a senior couple, and a clergy couple) who dare to be honest about their own marriages and answer the tough questions.

Do we have to say anything publicly?
No. Engaged Encounter is non-threatening. It is not group therapy. Your privacy will be respected.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
