Marriage Adventures

Lean into God’s purpose for your marriage – and have fun doing it!

Our Marriage Adventures are designed to encourage growth in your relationship with your spouse and with God, giving you resources to approach life and marriage wholeheartedly. Whether sailing, hiking, or exploring somewhere new, each adventure offers a chance to lean into God’s purpose for your marriage. As you uncover core dynamics of your relationship, you’ll cast a vision for your marriage that will last a lifetime.

These unique Adventure experiences are designed for acquaintances and friends to journey together under the hospitality of a host couple that has been trained through the WinShape Marriage program. Host couples can invite a small group of spouses who want to invest in their own marriages through an Adventure program.

Sail the British Virgin Islands

Join three other couples in a seven-night sailing adventure. You and your spouse can experience the thrill of traveling open water aboard a 50-foot catamaran, with gorgeous staterooms appointed with ensuites and air conditioning. Explore these Caribbean Islands and discover their unique cultures as you explore and discover new-found depth in your marriage. Study marriage enhancing devotionals in the morning and dive deeper into marriage teaching in the evening. While this sailing adventure is designed to breath new life into your marriage, it's also designed to bring you closer to God through engaging lessons taught within an inspirational environment. Delicious meals and scrumptious off-boat adventures (such as swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding) will delight your senses and calm your soul.

Walk the Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago, or “Way of St. James,” is a 1,200-year-old walking pilgrimage undertaken by thousands of Christians every year. Quaint Spanish restaurants and nightly accommodations in rustic hamlets will enable you to experience true Spanish culture and hospitality. Your host couple will lead your group in daily, devotional, marriage teaching that will reflect on each day’s experiences and insights to enhance your marital relationship. The Camino culminates with a worship service at a local cathedral, where you will receive a document proclaiming your status as a true “peregrino” (pilgrim). You and your spouse will leave with tired legs and full hearts.

Cruise the Caribbean

We invite you to come aboard the 350-foot Star Clipper for a 7-night, southern Caribbean cruise. This revitalizing adventure offers well-appointed staterooms (with ocean views), delectable meals, and servant-hearted hospitality. Cruising smoothly across the waves will easily enable you to leave daily stresses behind as you allow your spirit to steep in the magnificent, open-sea vistas. Each day will bring you to a new, dazzling, tropical isle; you may choose to go exploring or simply relax on board with your spouse, soaking in the beauty around you and in your relationship. Each evening, the 70 couples aboard will gather together for a devotional message and engage in a time of worship—an experience that will significantly enhance your Caribbean adventure. Additionally priced activities and shore excursions (such as paddle boarding, sea kayaking, scuba diving, or deep sea fishing) are available, but will vary by location.

Hike the Inca Trail

This Adventure is not for the weak at heart. This is an opportunity to be motivated to take on this challenge together, while opening your eyes, minds and hearts to biblical principles along the way. You’ll be introduced to the grandeur of the Andes Mountains as you traverse the famous Inca Trail together with five or six other couples. This is a chance to unplug from life’s distractions and dig deeply into your determination and resilience as a couple. Your adventure will begin in Cusco, Peru, where you’ll embark on a 26-mile, four-day hike in altitudes ranging from 8,000 to 14,000 feet. Your journey along this ancient trail will culminate at the stunning Incan citadel of Machu Picchu. (Please keep in mind the strenuous nature of this excursion. The altitude and the physically-demanding trail require intentional training and preparation.)
