There’s profound joy in helping others discover a moment of enrichment, or giving someone the courage to endure through hardship. Host Couples have the opportunity to minister to other couples and help cultivate transformation in their lives. You’ll receive in-depth training to host Retreats or facilitate your own transformative marriage experiences, so you can lead by example as a catalyst for connection. Join our family of servant leaders who help couples strengthen their commitment to each other and to God.
Be a part of creating transformative experiences for marriages — everywhere.
With WinShape Marriage
Within the context of our weekend Marriage Retreats, Host Couples seek to provide a ministry of presence to those who are participating in the retreat. This includes participating in experiential learning and programming components of the weekend, as well as joining couples for meals and down time. Hosts aim to build relationships with other couples and get to know them on a personal level, ultimately serving them by being a safe place to process the marriage content that is presented.
In Your Community
Creating healthy marriages in your church doesn’t happen by accident. Through intentional investment into couples, you can create lasting change and transformation, and ultimately, healthier families. As a pastor, marriage ministry leader, or small group leader, you have the opportunity to create transformative experiences right in your own context. By taking WinShape Marriage’s years of experience, you can learn new ways to help others discover a moment of enrichment, or give someone the courage to endure through hardship.
Around The World
For over 10 years, WinShape Marriage has been creating Adventures that lead to marital transformation. At the heart of these Adventures is our Host Couples - couples that have caught the vision for seeing marriages flourish and grow. As a Host Couple, you have the opportunity to lead an immersive discipleship journey and a revitalizing experience that will lead others into a deeper connection to God. You will learn how to embark on an adventure together and discover meaningful moments with others.
1. Apply using the button below so that we can follow up and hear more about your marriage story.
2. Take the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment. This is the most widely-used marriage assessment in the U.S. and helps reveal the areas of strength and potential growth within your relationship. If it is determined that the health of your marriage is not in a place to be leading other couples at this time, we would love to work with you and provide other resources to get your marriage where you want it to be.
3. Attend a Host Couple Training event at WinShape Retreat in Rome, GA. This is a weekend away for you and your spouse where we will provide comprehensive training on everything you need to know to be an effective host couple.
The only costs associated with becoming a Host Couple are the $35 fee for the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment and travel arrangements for attending a Host Couple Training event.
