A New Beginning, Marriage Renewal Weekend

“We came here stressed and disconnected, with some serious challenges before us. This experience gave us what we needed to get our marriage back on track and our hearts together again.”  Family Physician, Married 26 years

A Weekend To Renew Your Marriage and Make It Loving Again!
Every year hundreds of couples travel from all over the nation to attend the Marriage Renewal Intensives offered by Cornerstone Marriage & Family Ministries. Our program offers a proven alternative to marriage counseling. Our ministry team of facilitators walks couples through guided exercises that reveal the hidden barriers that keep their marriage from thriving and then help them to take steps towards healing their relationship and taking positive steps to rebuild a better, more caring marriage.

* Even if your marriage has become conflicted, cold, or distant- regardless of what feelings you may have toward each other now, experiencing this weekend will dramatically change your relationship, and put you on the road to recovery and life-long love. You will be challenged and empowered to take an honest look at yourself and your marriage, put the past behind, deal with the relevant issues and rediscover the feeling of love you once had in your marriage.

* Based on current research, timeless biblical principles, and our experience with hundreds of crisis marriages, this solution-oriented, intensive weekend can change your life, turn your marriage around, and put you on the path to life-long love.
You’ll Experience

…real truth

+ Discover practical, proven, Biblical tools for your marriage and a proven process that can restore your feelings of affection for each other, bring lasting change, and make your marriage loving again.
+ Be able to resolve conflicts, reduce tension, eliminate destructive emotions, overcome your past, and develop more intimacy in your relationship than you’ve possibly ever known in your marriage before.
 …real insights

+ Because certain male and female gender differences can cause immeasurable conflict in a marriage that can pull a couple apart, you’ll gain insights and understanding to accept each others “differentness”, and how to leverage those differences to create more harmony and closeness in your relationship.
+ Gain insight from marriage facilitators, coaches and counselors who communicate not only in a serious, problem-solving way, but who real, and fun, and who also share personal examples you can relate to and tools you’ll be able to readily apply.
+ Gain invaluable new insights into the attitudes and actions that restore love and make a vibrant marriage again.


…real renewal


+ You’ll gain and use practical tools and relationship skills that help you improve communication, understand each other’s needs, and practical ways to meet them,  minimize frustration and actually experience greater fulfillment in your relationship.
In short- you’ll re-discover more love for each other and get closer to each other than you ever dreamed possible.

+ Experience a  life-changing  weekend  as  you spend  time together away from  the distractions and pressures of everyday life.

A Personal Word From Marriage Expert, Dennis Rainey

“”This ministry has already made a difference in the lives of thousands of couples. Their work translates into lives that have been changed, marriages saved, and families strengthened. That’s why it’s with complete pleasure that I wholeheartedly recommend Cornerstone Marriage & Family Ministries.”


Dennis Rainey

Executive Director, FamilyLife

What Couples Who’ve Attended Are Saying …
“After the weekend, we put our divorce on hold and moved back in together, and today (almost seven months later), we’re stronger and happier than we’ve ever been before.”

Stay at home mom, married 9 years

“Since the near breakup of our marriage, we needed something that could turn our relationship around. We attended “A New Beginning” and got just what we needed-  forgiveness,  a  fresh start, a better  understanding of each other’s needs and how to create a more loving and harmonious marriage.”
School teacher, married 14 years

“Without doubt I can say that without this retreat I would not have been able to turn my marriage around from a painful separation to the growing and loving relationship that my wife and I now share. It was good to know that I was not completely alone on my journey.

Technical Rep, Married 17 years

“A New Beginning’ was not only inspirational in helping me to connect with God’s resources, but it gave me the tools and skills that I so desperately needed to understand how I contributed to my wife leaving and what changes I must make to repair the damage. You helped me find the strength to follow my convictions… to do everything that I could to rebuild and grow my marriage. Thank you for caring… and for the time and passion that you put into saving marriages.”
Engineer, Married 19 years
