Ministries Programs Family Life Marriage Foundations

So you find yourself engaged and wondering, "What's next?" Many of us spend so much time preparing for the wedding day that we forget to prepare adequately for a marriage that lasts a lifetime.

"Marriage Foundations," a free six-hour course for those engaged or considering engagement, will help prepare you for a fulfilling, life-long, God-honoring marriage. It even meets the requirements for pre-marital counseling in a classroom setting, qualifying couples for a $60 discount on their Tennessee marriage license if they get married within one year.

What Will We Talk About?

One of the fundamental components of any marriage is intimacy: to fully know and to be fully known. In "Marriage Foundations," Josh Creason, Ph.D., will focus on building these three facets of intimacy:

Spiritual Intimacy

  • Biblical Foundations of Marriage
  • The Marriage Covenant
  • "I'm in Repair" - The Sanctifying Marriage
  • Biblical Roles in Marriage

Relational Intimacy

  • Conflict: An Opportunity for Intimacy
  • Forgive and Forget?
  • Celebrating Differences
  • Money Matters

Physical Intimacy

Taking Marriage to Heart
