In 2011 the conference was simulcasted with 60 host sites and as of this year, the 2018 XO Marriage Conference is expected to have over 600 global host sites. The ministry behind the conference is Marriage Today and is ran by Jimmy and Karen Evans out of Amarillo, TX. The conference features multiple speakers from across the country.
Life Church will be simulcasting the conference on Feb. 9th and Feb. 10th. The doors open on Friday, Feb. 9th, at 6 PM, dinner will be served at 6:30 PM, and the simulcast begins at 7 PM. On Saturday, Feb. 10th, a continental breakfast will begin at 8:30 AM, the simulcast begins at 9 AM, and Saturday’s session will run until about 11:45 AM. The cost is $20 per couple, and includes food and childcare, and there will also be giveaways for couples in attendance.
Seagraves stated that if cost is an issue that keeps couples away who want to attend, there are scholarship opportunities that are available for those who need it.
When asked what couples can expect to get out of the conference, Seagraves stated that he and his wife had attended the simulcasted conference for the last three years and also stated, “It is a powerful conference with incredible information.”
“Probably the highlight of it is that, in the very end, they lead all of the couples in a renewal of their marriage vows; and it is a powerful experience. I’ve seen marriages that when they came into the conference they were really questionable about their desire to even continue and by the time the conference was over their relationship had been completely restored. It’s a powerful experience and I would definitely recommend it to any couple.”
