Taking Marital Education to Africa, India & The United Arab Emirates of Dubai

Promoting Godly Marriages in the Outermost Parts of the World  

As part of our partnership with Outback International we have been invited once again to help lead the marital education efforts in Nairobi, Kenya and Bangalore, India this coming April. In addition, we hope to finalize plans to launch our first Marriage Getaway in Dubai as part of the United Arab Emirates.


Over 100 husbands and wives are expected to participate in the Marriage Outbacks held in these three countries. This makes for our third tour of Africa, our second for India, and our first in Dubai. This will be especially challenging in a culture like India and Dubai where women are devalued and often neglected among their male counterparts.


Similar to the Marriage Outbacks that we lead in the States, these international venues offer the same outdoor adventure, fun, and sustained experiential learning. Rather than sleeping under the stars in tents, like our Marriage Outbacks held here in the United States, couples will stay in well-appointed accommodations. This unique marriage encounter is intentionally designed to help move couples out of their comfort zone, through their groan zone, to ultimately reach their growth zone. This is an important and effective part of the learning process as couples navigate the challenges of marriage while embracing the biblical truths of God’s design for marital oneness.


Topics during these three-day International Marriage Outbacks include, Recalling the Oneness of Marriage, Discovering God’s Design for Marital Oneness, Disarming the Threats to Oneness, and Reclaiming Surrendered Oneness. In addition to the retreats held in Kenya, India, and Dubai, we also lead international marriage adventures in Costa Rica, Poland, Tanzania Africa, and New Zealand.
