Whether you are married, or looking to get married, let the Art of Marriage create a masterpiece out of your marriage!
This event is wonderful for failing or struggling married, happily married, new married, re-married, almost married, married with kids, married for years, and any other marriage situation.
The Art of Marriage brings together some of the most respected and influential pastors and experts on marriage and family all in one setting. It also brings a fresh approach to a video event by weaving together engaging stories, real-life testimonies, man-on-the-street interviews and humorous vignettes to help couples fully experience God's design for marriage.
The Art of Marriage consists of six video sessions and an accompanying manual that provides couples with projects to help apply the principles taught during each session. The manual is also designed for couples to use after the event by offering articles, date night ideas and useful tips for continuing to strengthen their marriage.
The Art of Marriage isn't just a recording of one or two speakers at a marriage conference. This unique video event features numerous influential experts on marriage, such as Al Mohler, Voddie Baucham, Crawford Loritts and Dennis Rainey.
Registration includes admission to the Art of Marriage event, materials, and lunch on Saturday.
Here's what some couples who have attended this event had to say:
"Many couples feel that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. There is not any reason why the happiest couple to the one in the most trouble should not attend...this was a Do or Die weekend for my marriage. I have been truly blessed!!"
(the AOM) "...possibly saved our marriage."
One husband wrote: "I enjoyed the last 2 days. I think it really helped me realize how much I love God, my wife and my kids and family."
"This was the best $50 Christmas present we have ever given each other. Thank you!!!"
One wife wrote: "This event was a do or die for our marriage. I had had enough, which is HUGE, because I have been so super committed to keeping us together. This conference has been a catalyst for healing for 2 people at the ends of their marriage ropes."
One Husband wrote: "This has made a difference in my life and it probably saved our marriage. I'm so very thankful for that. I will fight for her and our family. THANK YOU!!"
