Marriage University Courses
Walk – Talk – Thrive – Fulfill
This is a six-session, interactive Bible study that outlines the principles of marriage as found in Genesis 2 and Ephesians 5. Since the love between a husband and wife is to be a direct reflection of the love of Christ and the church, the secrets of how to build a strong marriage come into plain view. The study encourages participation and causes couples to walk away with practical tools to build their relationships. One of our most popular lessons is on the sensitive issue of finances, a great cause of many divorces. The Walk Together series is also designed to give couples opportunity to find friendships with like-minded couples, who may become future friends.
Talk Together I & II
These lessons address the practical and deeper truths that help cultivate successful communication between husbands and wives. In this course, couples take a journey of discovery through the Word of God on the topics of communication, relationships, and conflict resolution. This course has been celebrated as quite the eye-opener in helping couples to discover what is truly hindering successful communication. It also shows couples how to set themselves up for success when facing old issues, unresolved conflicts, and blind spots. In this monthly study, couples learn that it is not what we say, but what we communicate. Couples gain a powerful platform for success when they discover these rich truths of communication.
This course is designed for couples who have completed the Walk Together and the Talk Together series. For this self-paced course, at least two or three couples join together to form their own study group. These couples work together to improve some area in their lives that could be a hindrance to them abounding in the will of God. Through prayer, accountability, and encouragement, couples gain the joy of helping each other win in key areas of their lives. (For example, managing finances, diet and exercise, verse-by-verse Bible study, praying together, child training, etc.) Couples set their own schedule. This level of study is designed solely to help couples thrive in key areas of discipline and skill that could hinder their fruitfulness in life, ministry, and/or business.
This level of study is for the couple that has addressed the weaknesses in their marriage in Thrive Together and are now ready to step more fully into the calling on their marriage. With a strong foundation of understanding and unity between themselves, this couple makes the commitment to thoroughly gain an understanding of their calling, their purpose, and the area of ministry/business to which they are called to serve. They will agree to a course of study and experience in the area which God has called them to serve. Areas of service are not limited to marriage ministry. These areas of service could range from answering the call to do business in the marketplace to church planting in the remotest regions on the mission field. Fulfill Together is a couple answering the calling to not only love each other and train their children, but to also fulfill the Great Commission in whatever area God calls them as a couple or a family. This is a couple declaring what Jesus said (in paraphrase), our lives are not our own, but His that sent us.
