Church Retreats


There is a call in churches to support couples and families in more ways. One way we want to help is making our couple trainings more accessible for your church.

Bringing the Training to You: At Core Values Counseling, we want to serve your church by bringing our retreat for couples and individuals to you. We take on program development and join your vision for your church retreat. We will work with you to make this the experience you are looking for. All you have to do is get the people there! Let us do the heavy lifting and ensure a powerful, life-changing experience for your couples.

No matter what stage of life couples are at; engaged, newlyweds, or married 10, 20, 35 or 50 years, they are building a legacy! Couples who know their personal core values; the way God created them to show up in the world, are able to combine their God-breathed giftedness into a powerful vision for their lives, their families and build a strong legacy for the future.

Caring for pastoral couples


We care about YOU and YOUR marriage! We want to offer a time for you to get away, experience a time of deep reflection, connection and also a chance to get to know us and how we can serve your flock. This getaway is at the Dreamgivers Inn outside Newberg, Or. (insert pic of dreamgivers). It is a gift from us to you, free of charge. One night (more nights can be booked for a deeply discounted rate). We will be guiding you through your own Core Values Index™ and also guiding you through a time of vision and legacy-building activities. All are done in an intimate way, so you don’t have to share out. We keep these retreats small and they are only for pastors, so you can be encouraged by others in your own calling. Come away and be refreshed…ON US!​

We provide our retreats to churches at very affordable rates to ensure access, contact us so we can begin the conversation to plan the best retreat to fit your needs.

bobwalkerx200With many marriages ending in divorce, we need more people like Eric and Sabrina Walters who speak to the heart about God’s design for successful marriages. Their Marriage Conference, Enticing Love, provided us with both biblical perspective and open discussions that challenged our people to live out God’s design for marriages that work.  As a team the Walters share personal insights bringing spiritual principles to real life.  Their presentation is a well developed program providing immediate benefit and life long resources through their recently released book “Enticing Love: Real Hope for Real Relationships,” which opened our eyes to how God has “wired” each of us as individuals and as a result, how we can best encourage, relate to and communicate with our partner. We have already invited them back for spring of 2016.
