Here's what we know about marriage: Being married is hard! No relationship or married couple is perfect, but God has designed marriage and has incredible intentions for your marriage. We believe every marriage can improve. Hurting marriages can be healed, good marriages can become great, and strong marriages can be made even stronger.
The Marriage Ministry at Paramount desires to make these hopes a reality. Whether you are an engaged couple, newlyweds, or you have been married for years we offer opportunities to fine-tune your marriage using biblical principles.
Marriage Enrichment opportunities include:
Marriage retreats are designed for couples to get out of town, away from their fast-paced schedule, for the purpose of gaining new insight for their marriage. The weekend begins with dinner at 6:00pm on Friday and concludes Sunday at noon. The retreat features 4 large-group sessions with Saturday afternoon available as free time.

5 Days to a New Marriage
Is it really possible to have a new marriage in 5 days (actually 9 weeks)? The answer is yes! 5 Days to a New Marriage was specifically designed for marriages that need to find healing, for good marriages wanting to become great, and for everyone else in between. Based on counseling, brain research, and scripture, this material was created by professional counselors. This curriculum uses step-by-step teaching to help couples create new patterns to replace emotional pain with more truthful, uplifting interactions. Husbands and wives will learn realistic skills to transform old, predictable reactions into opportunities to build each other up; all while learning to balance responsibility, connection, and problem solving. Couples will begin to work together as true partners-appreciating each other's gifts, forgiving one another, and creating a vision for their family.
A 5 Days to a New Marriage group consists of a Lead Couple plus a maximum of 4 other couples that make up a 9-week commitment to study, learn, share, and grow together as they experience life-changing transformation. Classes are offered on various days of the week and at various times, and will form all throughout the year in order to best meet the schedule demands of busy couples. Please let us know which night(s) would work for you by simply completing the registration form. You will be contacted by a Lead Couple to answer questions and help you get signed up. New groups will start as enough couples are signed up.

Many couples are unable for a myriad of reasons to leave town and attend a marriage retreat. We recognize this and want to provide a local and affordable alternative to receive quality marriage enrichment. These conference formats will be a large group setting with an opportunity for couples to discuss a variety of marriage topics.
In our fast-paced world, couples often forget the importance of dating and courting each other as well as developing relationships with other couples. So, on periodic Friday nights throughout the year, we offer date nights to encourage couples to have an intentional targeted evening for an old-fashioned date. We will provide you with creative and fun ideas to add to your private date night experience. Some nights we will offer large group gatherings of couples designed to be fun and enjoy being with other couples. Many of these nights will feature free childcare. There is no cost for these events.
Future dates are to be determined.
You and one other couple will join a host couple in the beautiful mountains of Angel Fire, NM. This is a weekend designed for a couple to get away from the routine of life and work together on establishing or evaluating marriage and family goals. Topics addressed include your spiritual life, home life, work, sexual intimacy, finances, relationships, time management and health/fitness. The host couple will not only prepare meals, but will also serve as encouragers to help you in the goal setting and dreaming process. Whether you have been married 2 or 50 years it is important that you work on these elements of your life together.
Schedule: Noon on Friday - Noon on Sunday with Saturday afternoon as free time
Cost: $100 per couple, includes lodging, meals and resource materials
