Every year hundreds of couples travel from all over the nation to attend the Christian 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.
+ 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.
+ Resolve conflicts, develop healthy communication, meet each others most important emotional needs, create more harmony and reduce tension in your marriage, deal with destructive emotions, overcome past resentments, and develop more love and intimacy in your relationship than you’ve possibly ever known in your marriage before.
+ 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.
+ You’ll gain and use practical tools and relationship skills that help you improve communication, understand each others 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.

In order to serve our clients, we make advance commitments to secure adequate meeting and lodging space, support personnel, counselors, program materials and resources. Therefore, we simply cannot make exceptions to our cancellation policy, but must adhere to this policy without exception, including emergencies. Please understand that this is not intended to be in any way uncaring or harsh, but it is a business reality that the ministry is obligated to, and one we ask you to accept when registering for an event.
