Pastors, would you like to equip your staff or specific congregation members to carry out premarital counseling in your church? You may be interested in honing your skills and learning from Dr. West's 30+ years of ministry experience in biblical counseling.
Dr. West takes seriously the responsibility pastors have in helping couples begin their new life together on a biblical foundation. He will take you through his ten-week premarital process, teaching you about the tools he uses, homework assignments, and what to look for in each session with the premarital couple.
The Premarital Counseling The Biblical Way weekend conference consists of 10 interactive sessions. Dr. West is also available to provide support and answer questions after the training for those actively carrying out premarital counseling in their church.
Session 1: Introduction to the premarital counseling process and what to expect.
Session 2: Communication: learning to listen and speak for greater intimacy.
Session 3: Understanding and appreciating personality differences.
Session 4: Family history matters.
Session 5: Dealing with conflicts in the marriage and the practice of forgiveness.
Session 7: Building spiritual intimacy through the practice of God's Word.
Session 8: The money discussion (work, budgets, children, and fun).
Session 9: Psst, what does the Bible say about sex?
Session 10: Promises made, promises kept.
