A one-day conference to equip individuals, couples and ministry leaders

When couples take proactive steps to seek out wisdom from other, more experienced couples, the impact on their marriages is profound. The most heeded counsel often comes through relationships with trusted mentor couples, pastors and ministry leaders, as people imitate what they see lived out. Marriage mentoring is about walking alongside another couple, providing a place for safe conversation and moving the couple forward wherever they are.



What you can expect at the conference

This Marriage Mentoring Conference consists of training based on our recently published Marriage Mentoring Workbooks, and is designed to equip you with the tools, resources and confidence you need to become an effective marriage mentor. All of our speakers are engaging, humorous and warm, with a relatable style that draws on their academic expertise and practical wisdom from their years of marriage and ministry.

As a result of this training, you will learn:

  • Core principles to help couples deepen their friendship and intimacy

  • Techniques to help couples manage conflict successfully

  • The importance of forgiveness and steps to take in the forgiveness process

  • How to guide couples through research-based scales and assessments

  • Strategies for healthy interaction, communication and listening

  • How to ask great questions, facilitate deep conversations, and offer supportive, empathetic encouragement to couples when needed
