CALLED TOGETHER Mentor’s Video Seminar
Marriage, it’s God’s idea. If we believe that marriage is a lifelong commitment, then we must believe in thorough marriage preparation and mentoring. The latest Barna research tells us that one in four Christian marriages are ending in divorce. Let’s be a part of changing that statistic.
This free video seminar is based on the material in the book, Called Together, a unique workbook designed for couple-to-couple mentoring use, preparing couples for a successful marriage. The informative sessions train church leaders and lay leadership couples to use the Called Together couple-to-couple mentoring format. More details on the workbook here.
What will this video training teach us?
The training covers the “how to’s” of pre- and postmarital counseling. Valuable insights are given on how to draw a couple out so they can take a thorough look at themselves, their backgrounds and their future. Each of the six premarital chapters and two postmarital sessions are reviewed. Additional special sections are also covered: Remarriage, Intercultural and Interracial Marriage, and When Seniors Remarry.
Who should participate in this training?
This training is for pastors and their spouses, as well as, for mature believers who have a desire to sow into the lives of couples who feel called to marriage. Couples are strongly encouraged to participate in this training time together.
