MarriageStrong is a psychoeducational marriage group experience committed to helping your leaders develop valuable relationship skills that will not only help their marriages, but also dramatically change the way they interact with others in their families, friendships, places of work, and within the Body of Christ.
Regardless of your background, the Boone Center training seminar on MarriageStrong will teach you to understand the dynamics of the information and how to apply it to a group setting in your community. MarriageStrong material has been taught successfully by both professionals and lay leaders. Some facilitators are Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists or Licensed Professional Counselors, while others are lay leaders who are competent in the material.
Many leaders co-facilitate with their spouse, which is encouraged.
Hear Their Story- Matthew & Melinda
We've done quite a lot of work with marriages, but what is so unique about the MarriageStrong group, is that it gave us a short-hand tool to use in the midst of conflict, in the heat of the moment. We could actually come out the other side, not just resolving the conflict, but actually developing greater intimacy and understanding for each other. We've been married now for eleven years and this is, by far, the most useful and most in-depth marriage curriculum we've experienced and taught others.
Become a MarriageStrong Leader
Facilitators of MarriageStrong groups participate in a 2-day leadership training. You are taught the curriculum in an interactive and interpersonal format, working through the key learning objectives yourself to experience firsthand the benefits of the program for your own relationships. The training includes practical how-to's for small group formation and interaction and a leader's manual.
The feedback regarding MarriageStrong was quite enthusiastic and wonderful. All of the couples found the Pain Cycle/Peace Cycle to be eye opening, powerful and very effective. They are already experiencing changes within themselves and in their couple dynamic as they mindfully process what's going on in them.
