Today, leading churches and communities are experiencing dramatic results by providing marriage mentoring to pre-marital couples, married couples in need of enrichment, and even those ready to “call it quits.” Trained pastors and lay marriage mentors can have a profound impact transforming their church and community, one couple at a time.

Sadly, while the vast majority of weddings take place in churches, fewer than 5% of churches utilize lay marriage mentors and only about 30% require couples to take a relationship assessment as part of their marriage preparation. That’s a tragic, lost opportunity to provide engaged couples with the skills they will need for a successful marriage. We want to change that by offering several training options that can be customized to fit your specific needs.

Review the options below and then contact us so we can confirm pricing and availability.
