Marriage in 3-D
Weekend Program - Friday Evening and Saturday
Marriage in 3-D is an extremely helpful and fun program that explores three critical dimensions of biblical marriage—Direction (coming to consensus), Distinctiveness (understanding and respecting our God-wired uniqueness), and Display (reflecting the relationship that is possible between Christ and people). Relationship topics such as communication, forgiveness, and conflict resolution are paired with useful applications in an interactive format.
Dozens of real-life scenarios are explored in this program and connect helpfully with the couples attending. Marriage in 3-D is usually taught as a weekend intensive, which allows couples to go beyond a surface discussion into the heart of relational matters. For lasting success, an emphasis on healthy patterns is introduced and explained in the context of a marriage relationship.
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.
The costs for this program are extremely affordable—shared by the host church, chapel, or group, and the participants. The host's costs for this program include a $350 booking fee and reimbursement of minimal travel costs (to be discussed ahead of booking). The host also manages facilities and publicity and usually will provide drinks, snacks, and a simple Saturday lunch for the attendees. The host assures that there will be at least fifteen participating couples.
We are also happy to host the Marriage in 3-D program at our retreat center (up to 20 people overnight and up to 80 for day only). The booking fee of $350 is required, but all travel costs for our team are $0. The retreat center fees apply (see "Retreat Center"), and your group manages the details—itinerary (we will tell you what we need as far as teaching session slots for the program selected), meals, snacks, etc.
The attendees' cost for this program per couple is $50 (to go to Son Shine Ministries). The $50 is collected by the host church and paid collectively (mindful of the fifteen couples minimum if fewer actually participate).
