How Our Couples/Family Discipleship Works
Married couples and families are able to join at a special family rate and can stay on or off-campus depending on the individual needs of your family and our availability. Our family-style rooms are suited to host you and your spouse, or your entire family! Single rooms feature a queen bed with a private bath. Suites feature two rooms connected by an adjoining bath with a queen bed on one side and a set of bunk beds on the other. Double rooms sleep six. Portable cribs and baby baths are available upon request.
(Please note: bed linens are provided for Weeklong Intensive students only – if you are staying for a longer program, we ask that you bring your own bedding.)
We love the dynamic that families and couples bring to our
semesters and would love to welcome you and yours in the future!

Heather C. | CO, USA
My husband and I came to Ellerslie fresh into marriage, and it was foundational in gaining a vision for how a couple fully surrendered to Christ can impact this world for eternity — individually and together. We will forever be grateful for spiritual investment we received, and pray many, many more will be equipped through this ministry to proclaim the glory of God to this world!
FAMILY DISCIPLESHIP FAQ
WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A FAMILY?
When we say family, we mean “immediate family” and not “extended family” – meaning, a family would include related people living in the same household (or connected by common parents), etc. Questions as to whether your group qualifies as a family? Email us here.
IS A FAMILY EXPECTED TO STAY ON-CAMPUS IN THE DORMS, OR OFF-CAMPUS?
A couple or family is able to join at our family rate and can stay on-campus in one of our family suites, or off-campus (i.e. find your own lodging in the area), depending on the individual needs of your family and our room availability. If you are interested in staying on-campus and rooming together, we recommend that you email us prior to submitting your registration to check the availability of our family suites during the program of your choice.
HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH OF MY CHILDREN SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN THE SESSIONS (WHAT AGE IS THE MATERIAL GEARED FOR)?
We believe that the truths shared through this program can impact your entire family! While the material is spiritually deep and biblically rich, we have had students as young as eleven and twelve participate in the sessions with great success. It all depends on where your child is at in their ability to focus and absorb spiritual truth. Younger children are also welcome to sit in on the sessions and do other activities if they are not quite old enough to take in what is being taught. (We do ask that any children who are crying or being a distraction be taken out for the sake of all the students participating.)
In short, all ages are welcome to attend the sessions, and it is up to you as the parent as to the level of participation you would like your children to have. Many families have found it helpful to arrange for their own childcare during their semester for any young kiddos who won’t be able to sit through the daily classes and activities.
Please note that we are unable to provide ongoing childcare for your family during a semester – though our on-campus staff is sometimes able to help for short times of childcare (such as during an evening special event) when they are available.
ARE MEALS INCLUDED IF A COUPLE OR FAMILY ATTENDS THE PROGRAM?
If you are staying on-campus, all meals are included (except Saturday and Sunday dinners)! If your family has dietary needs, our kitchen team is able to provide gluten and diary free options if you let us know in advance via email. (You are also welcome to bring your own food to campus if you have special dietary restrictions or preferences.) If your family is staying off-campus, lunch (daily) is included with a family registration, and you will be on your own for all other meals. If you are staying off-campus and would like to opt-in to have all meals with your registration, please contact our registrar upon applying.
HOW DO I APPLY AS A COUPLE/FAMILY?
Simply fill out the application for the semester you want to attend – during the application process, you will be asked if additional family members will be joining you and can submit their names during the application process.
