Soul Care Training for
The Body of Christ

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

“You are sanctified by remembering and believing afresh that you are justified by what Jesus did on the cross for you.” ― David A. Powlison

In every culture and time, couples have found themselves struggling and searching for a sense of peace and happiness with their spouse. Many will say they never would have considered or wanted a divorce. Yet, they can’t find any other solution except to walk away from the covenant relationship they entered just a few years before. I Still Do - The Seasons of Marriage helps struggling couples stay together, even when they don’t “feel” like staying together.

The structure of this conference rest upon sound biblical principles and is based in part on The 4-Seasons of Marriage by Dr. Gary Chapman and Marriage and Family From a Biblical Worldview by Dr. Rod West.

Session 2: Five Essentials of Every Marriage
Session 3: Overcoming the Coldness of Winter

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.
