Frequently Asked Questions

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.


What should I bring?

You can come just as you are, but you are welcome to bring a Bible, a notebook, and a pen.


Do I need to register?

Yes! We would love to know you are joining us, whether you plan to attend in-person or join us online. Space is limited for our in-person venues, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible before we reach capacity. Access to join us for the online conference will be provided exclusively to those who are registered to attend.


Will there be any extra fees, or does my registration fee cover everything?

No extra fees.


Do I have to register now, or cal I do it at the door?

The Thrive 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.


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 Hope City Church to the conference?

Please do! The Thrive Marriage Conference is designed for the couples of Hope City Church and the people in their lives: friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors.


Who is able to attend the Thrive 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?

Are there refunds available if I am unable to attend?
