As part of an answered prayer, we were honored to be asked to help facilitate a marriage initiative in east Tennessee, funded by a local grant to strengthen marriages and families in local communities. As a result, countless couples will be exposed to the Gospel and God’s design for marriage in ways that they perhaps would otherwise not be influenced.
Tennessee – get ready. The communities of east Tennessee are about to be transformed. Starting in October, several churches are joining together to begin an important marriage initiative. We will be joining other facilitators and marriage mentors that will be conducting marriage workshops around east Tennessee designed to promote God’s design for marriage. This program will incorporate experiential teaching, mentoring, research and accountability. The goal is to reach within and outside the walls of the church to equip couples to embrace God’s design for marital oneness. One of the outreach objectives of this initiative is to minister to people that have likely never graced the doors of a church. The team has a God sized vision to transform east Tennessee, eventually state-wide, and then to the ends of the earth.
