Our desire is to assist and meet the marriage and relational needs of our community and churches. Listed below are some of the various programs and workshops that we offer.
HOPE Weekends use Dr. Richard Marks’ Enriched Relationships process. HOPE Weekends are not counseling or therapy, but an educational process that effects change. They are however, very therapeutic. Those who attend these weekends must agree to attend the whole weekend and agree to operate with goodwill and respect. Ill will and disrespect undermine healthy relationships and do not build connections. HOPE Weekends are also attended by premarital couples and by others who seek to enrich their relationship. And very important to remember, HOPE Weekends are cheaper than a divorce and long term, much more meaningful!

Fun, practical, and easy to learn, our programs for married couples are appropriate for married couples at any age or stage. These proven programs are better described as “experiences” designed to reach couples across the spectrum – from happy and highly motivated to struggling and highly stressed. Come learn how to create the marriage you have always wanted with the spouse you already have! This workshop has also been featured and utilized by special ops couples and our military families.
CHERISH: “Most marriages survive by gritting teeth and holding on. But marriages can and will not only survive but thrive when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another.”
Author Gary Thomas shows that although there are a countless number of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions, there are real ways this pattern can be reversed: when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words.
Through personal stories and real world examples, Thomas proves what husbands and wives can begin doing today to turn their marriage around—even a marriage marred by neglect and disrespect.
So how do you cherish your spouse? Our workshop facilitators will show you how going out of your way to notice them, appreciate them, honor them, encourage them, and hold them close to your heart will bring hope, light, and life into your marriage.
