No Marriage Left Behind Training


Leadership training to help marriages in your church.

Bridge To Life has offered help to marriages in crisis for over 30 years.  From our years of experience, BTL offers No Marriage Left Behind, resources to help churches minister to marriages. (Click Here for program information.)

One of the resources of No Marriage Left Behind, is the Heart & Soul of a Real Marriage, 12 lesson study that takes a couple on a journey of awareness about the dynamics taking place below the surface of their relationships.

The Heart & Soul of a Real Marriage digs deep and goes to the core of marriage and relational issues with a strong biblical base.  It addresses the wounds that couples frequently bring into their marriage.  It helps couples in crisis get to the root of their issues, as well as helps couples with stable marriages go deeper in intimacy.

Leadership Training for Pastors & Lay Couples

Bridge To Life offers a two and one half day training program to equip you with the following resources:

1.  How to start a marriage ministry in your church.

2.  How to respond to a couple in crisis.

3.  How to use the Heart & Soul of a Real Marriage 12 lesson study to guide couples to a deeper awareness of the barriers that hinder intimacy in their marriage.

When you finish the training you will have a clear vision and the resources to offer an effective marriage ministry in your church.
