Marriage Mentor Training

Workshop Outline

What’s the Marriage Mentor Training Workshop all about?

In this three and a half hour interactive workshop, you’ll learn how your marriage story can bring help and hope to another couple.

By the end of the training, you and your spouse will understand how marriage mentoring works and be able to discern if it’s a good fit for you in this season of life.

If you decide to proceed, you’ll have gained the tools needed to begin mentoring a couple in your church or community.

Who is it for?

If you have a healthy marriage and a heart to help other couples, mentoring could be a good fit for you. We know your marriage isn’t perfect (No one’s is!) but your successes should be shared with others. This is not counselling, so you don’t need to have all the answers. Mentoring is about listening and helping your mentee couple talk with each other and make good decisions.

This workshop is also ideal for pastors, church staff or lay leaders who may wish to see marriage mentoring become an ongoing ministry within their church.
