2023 Marriage Conference

The Alec & Belle Lecture Series will once again be holding our annual Marriage Conference.  This year we will be hosting Phil Gungor with the Laugh Your Way Ministry at the SHERATON WAIKIKI on February 10th-11th.


Why a “laughter” approach?  For one simple reason: to overcome the male objection to a couples’ event. Let’s be honest, couples’ events aren’t the first thing a guy thinks of when he thinks of “a fun way to spend the weekend.” We get that…Familiar with the fact that women are usually much more open to discussing marital problems than their spouses, Laugh Your Way A Couples’ Comedy Event is designed with an element of humor that appeals to couples, but is especially well-received by men.

The Sheraton is offering discounted rooms prices for our attendees who would like to stay overnight for the event.  Please contact us at info@waterhouselecture.org for the discount code or any additional questions.
