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, faith-based 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 grow in their faith and invest in their own marriages through an Adventure program.

Sail the British Virgin Islands

Join three other couples in a seven-night sailing adventure that’s grounded in biblical principles that bring you closer to each other and to God. You and your spouse can experience the thrill of traveling open water aboard a 50-foot catamaran (equipped with gorgeous staterooms appointed with ensuites and air conditioning) while diving deeper into God’s vision for your marriage. Together, you can explore these Caribbean Islands and discover their unique cultures as you experience new-found depth in your marriage through biblical devotionals and teaching. While this sailing adventure is designed to breath new life into your relationship, 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) complement the experience and set the scene for prayerful, soul-calming dialogue, and connection with your spouse.

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. Through this Adventure, your host couple will lead your group in daily devotions and marriage teaching that will reflect on each day’s experiences. Biblically-based insights and discussion guide your journey and are designed to spark intentional dialogue that will 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. Quaint Spanish restaurants and nightly accommodations in rustic hamlets will enable you to experience true Spanish culture and hospitality, while growing closer to each other and to God.

Cruise the Caribbean

We invite you to come aboard the 350-foot Star Clipper for a seven-night cruise that is grounded in biblical principles as you explore the beauty of the southern Caribbean waters. 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 and your heart to open to God’s calling in your marriage. Daily devotions and teaching allow you to connect on a deeper level with your faith and with each other among the beauty of these tropical isles. Each day will bring you to a new island where you may choose to go exploring or simply relax on board with your spouse, soaking in scripture-based teaching and enjoying the inspirational environment around you. Each evening, the 70 couples aboard will gather together for a devotional message and engage in a time of worship. This revitalizing Adventure offers well-appointed staterooms (with ocean views), delectable meals, and servant-hearted hospitality. 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 open your eyes, minds, and hearts to biblical principles as you take on this physical challenge together. 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 deeper into your faith and determination and resilience as a couple. Your host couple will lead daily devotions and biblical teaching that is designed to inspire you along your journey and encourage you to grow closer to God and each other. This inspirational 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.)
