Engaged Encounter

The Mission of Engaged Encounter

To nurture and support the marriage of a man and woman and their family life by offering an opportunity to experience a deep and loving communication with each other and with God. We also encourage personal self-esteem and spirituality, couple and family relationships and community outreach which affirms the value of marriage in a diverse society.

Engaged Encounter fills the necessity of married couples to grow together in the belief that the future transformation of the world begins at the heart of the family ~ the couple.

Engaged Encounter programs are an excellent preparation for married life.

The program fulfills the pre-Cana church requirements of all denominations. Twin Cities Engaged Encounter is highly recommended by churches throughout the Metro area. We are an inter-faith Christian experience and welcome couples of all faiths or no faith. The organization is not connected to any particular denomination. Individual and couple spirituality are shared versus a denomination. Guided by a team of trained volunteer couples, each participant takes an honest look at self, explores their relationship with each other, their family and society.

Pricing: Your weekend includes meals, program, and materials for only $150 per couple. Attending the program will entitle you to a reduction on your marriage license fee. Registration fee is non-refundable but transferable.

Our Engaged Encounter program is from 9:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m. on Saturday
