Marriage Intensives

Marriage Intensives 


We’re glad you’re here!

Your being here means that you believe there is still hope for your marriage. That’s all we ask … that you can still see a flicker of life … and have a willingness to fan that flame back into a meaningful marriage. You owe it to yourself, your spouse and your children to make that effort.

Acknowledging your need for an intervention … or a miracle … is the first step to transforming your relationship. You might believe you’re too far apart … too hurt and damaged … or too far gone to save your marriage. We believe that our time together can help you begin to stop the craziness so you can begin putting your relationship with God and each other back together again.

May we encourage you … before you choose to extinguish the flame of your marriage forever, to make at least one more try?


What is a “Fan the Flame Marriage Intensive”?

Our marriage intensives are more than a couple’s weekend retreat. They are intimate, personalized coaching sessions designed to help you identify and address your specific needs. Intensives are more powerful than one hour counseling sessions because they keep you both focused on your issues for an extended period of time. You will receive over 25 hours of personalized coaching and marriage building exercises that will fan the flame of your marriage back to life.

Where are these intensives held?

We want you to get away from the distractions and daily routines that complicate your life so you can focus on yourselves and your marriage.

Our East Coast attendees will be our guests at either Sandy Cove Retreat Center in Maryland, our home office in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, or at Harvey Cedars Bible Conference in Long Beach Island, NJ.

Our West Coast attendees will be hosted at the beautiful Palm Garden Hotel in Thousand Oaks, Southern CA. 

The intensives at all locations are the same cost ... follow the same materials ... and are led by the our highly trained marriage coaches.

Hear what some of our couples are saying about our marriage events:

"I am so very thankful for HOTR.  We are doing well, we have started over.  New start, new marriage and we are building our foundation on God's Word, forgiveness, truth, honesty and forever.  My husband has stated that he is going to win my heart back."  A & J


"Thank you both for such an awesome and enlightened weekend.  C and I both absolutely learned so much more about each other and how to start communicating.  We hardly stopped talking all the way home. We really needed this. We can't thank you enough." C & C


"My husband and I really enjoyed this past weekend. It rekindled flames and opened our hearts and minds to a new way of treating each other. Your honest personal accounts of love and struggle proves that we can do this! With Gods help all is possible. Though we have many struggles outside of our immediate influence, we realize that our partnership with God's guidance is insurmountable. Thank you for all you did and we look forward to you being their for us as we continue our journey." I & A


"This is an incredible program. Something every married couple would benefit from whether they are having major problems or not! It has been transforming for me and my husband! We still have a long way to go, but the fear buttons section alone is worth the intensive! (That's a lot of exclamations!!!!) " M & R
