Restoration/Reconciliation of Troubled Couples

The training of mentor couples to assist couples in crisis is a very important ministry to our society. Couples desiring to minister in this area should have a good, but not necessarily perfect, marriage, and ideally, have had some difficulty or difficulties over the years that they were able to overcome. Their ability to restore their own marriage from the brink of destruction will give them both an ability to give good practical help to another couple, and will also give them the hope of success that all couples in crisis need.

Training in this area will consist of at least 10 hours of class time with additional sessions scheduled as needed to build the skills and self-confidence required for this type of mentoring. Classes are scheduled periodically as needed.
