Cornerstone

This conference will provide an opportunity to get equipped in the six most common problematic areas of marriage.

Many of us went through some sort of Pre-marital Counseling before we got married. We sat down and talked about all of the different areas of marriage and were, hopefully, given a helpful foundation. But what about “Mid-marital Counseling”? We tend to only reach out for help when we’re in crisis, however we all know that there are aspects of our marriage that could be healthier, or ways we could go deeper with our spouse. This conference is designed to provide just that. Breakout sessions will cover the six most common problematic areas of marriage, and will provide an opportunity for you to get equipped for some of the areas in your marriage where you wish things were a little bit better, but just aren’t sure how to make that happen.

All sessions are licensed for private use under the following license.

Opening Session

God's Glory and Design for Marriage

Taught by Pastor Jim Leonard

God intends you to grow in your marriage relationship, and discover something new – a deeper relationship with a person from a completely different and weird gender – in some ways the most unlikely person to grow deep with - but the exact and only person to lead you into a deeper relationship with your Lord.
