Prepare to Last

This weekend helps couples considering marriage build a strong foundation for their lives together.


Prepare to Last is designed to help engaged couples and those considering engagement build a strong foundation for a successful Christian marriage.

You must pass a test before you’re licensed to drive, yet you can get a marriage license for just a few bucks. A successful relationship requires more preparation than an elaborate wedding. At Prepare to Last, you and your significant other will learn about yourselves and gain deep insights into what makes for a healthy relationship and a fulfilling marriage.

National marriage speakers Jeff and Debby McElroy will guide you through the weekend, helping you focus on building a solid foundation for your marriage.

All of this takes place in an adventurous yet serene environment, featuring ropes courses, space for personal reflection as a couple, and energetic worship

$340 per person – including lodging for two nights, meals and programming
