PME Stewardship
Presbyterian Marriage Encounter is a non-profit corporation.  It is staffed completely with volunteer clergy and lay couples who donate their time, their energy, their talents, and often their financial resources.  No one involved with Presbyterian Marriage Encounter, including the presenting teams, receives any financial compensation for their efforts.  The many, many couples who serve in a myriad of ways all serve because of their belief in and commitment to the ministry of Marriage Encounter.

...no paid staff!

...no corporate offices!

There are no corporate, regional, or local offices for Presbyterian Marriage Encounter.  Our offices reside in the homes of volunteers across the world where the materials necessary for planning and conducting Marriage Encounter weekends are stored in boxes lovingly decorated with Marriage Encounter decals.
Couples are asked to pay a non-refundable registration fee as their commitment to attend a weekend.  On the weekend, the costs associated with conducting the weekend are explained to the couples who are then asked to prayerfully consider making a donation to Presbyterian Marriage Encounter.

...funded solely with donations!

...covers weekend costs!

Presbyterian Marriage Encounter incurs many costs.  These include costs associated with the facilities where weekends are conducted and the various administrative costs such as postage, telephone, printing, and team training.  Donations are used to cover all of these costs.
Donations are also used to spread Presbyterian Marriage Encounter to places where weekends are not currently available.  With the help of loving volunteer couples, donations help cover the costs of starting new Marriage Encounter communities.  Within the past several years, the Spokane, WA, and the Tidewater, VA communities have been started and are now presenting weekends to couples in their areas.

...new communities!

...international outreach!

In the past, Presbyterian Marriage Encounter has presented weekends in Peru and in Northern Ireland.  In 2000, Presbyterian Marriage Encounter presented the first Weekend in Kenya.  Three weekends were presented in Kenya in August of 2001.  We also have hopes of presenting weekends in Korea sometime in the future.
