Will childcare be provided?
Childcare will not be provided during the conference. Our hope is that this will be a time for you to "get away" and be free from distraction so you can receive all God has for you. We ask that you refrain from brining your children into the Main Auditorium out of respect for others.
What should I bring?
You can come just as you are, but you are welcome to bring a Bible, a notebook, and a pen.
Will there be any extra fees, or does my registration fee cover everything?
All meals and snacks are included in your registration fee. There will also be complimentary coffee, but if you are a latte-lover, you may want to bring some extra money to purchase a specialty coffee beverage from the Highlands Café. Additionally, merchandise from the conference and our special guest will be available to purchase.
Do I have to register now, or can I do it at the door?
The Highlands Marriage Conference has reached capacity in the past. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to register early as we may not be able to offer same day registration. Additionally, we will mail a conference wristband to everyone who registers early. The wristband will serve as your admission ticket into the Marriage Conference, so you will not have to check in at the Registration Desk when you arrive, and you can go straight into the Main Auditorium. That means no lines, and no waiting!
Should I come to the conference if I haven’t joined the church and haven’t completed the Growth Track?
Absolutely! Church membership and completion of the Growth Track are not required to attend the conference.
I have already attended a marriage conference in the past, so should I plan to go this year?
Absolutely. We strive to create a new, inspiring, and fun conference experience every year and don’t want you to miss out on this time to get away and invest in your marriage!
May I invite couples who do not attend Highlands to the conference?
Please do! The Highlands Marriage Conference is designed for the couples of Highlands and the people in their lives: friends, family, co-workers and neighbors.
Who is able to attend the Highlands Marriage Conference?
Engaged or married couples of all ages are welcome. We design the conference to be applicable and enjoyable for couples in their 20’s to their 90’s.
Are scholarships available to cover a portion of the registration fee?
To request a scholarship application for the conference, please email email@example.com.
Are there refunds available if I am unable to attend?
Thank you for understanding that all registrations are transferable but non-refundable. Transfers are the responsibility of the two parties involved, and Highlands does not arrange payment for transferred registrations or the exchange of wristbands/tickets.
