ABOUT THIS SEMINAR

The theme for our second Marriage Seminar is Married for God's Glory. Nowhere is the fellowship of God expressed more intimately than in Christian marriage. Brian Parks will be our guest speaker. He is the Senior Pastor of Covenant Hope Church in Dubai. He has over 20 years of ministry experience in the Middle East, including college ministry in Dubai for over a decade. He is married to Joanne for over 25 years and they have four daughters. Joanne will join Brian for the second session on the Question and Answer panel.

Here are 3 reasons why you should attend the Marriage Seminar this year:

1. To increase intimacy and communication with your spouse. 

How many married couples could honestly say that they’re always as passionate for each other as they were on their wedding day? While this is a noble thing to strive for, it is simply not possible for our flawed human selves to maintain the same steadfast love as the God who created us. Over time, the stress of the world can wear down our marriages and drive us apart. Marriage seminars allow us to go back to the start and rekindle that fire that we once held for our spouses.  They encourage us to open up to each other, to desire to know one another the way that God knows us.

2. To learn from other Godly relationships.

Whether you’ve been married for many decades or just a few days, you can always learn something new about marriage. Why? Because we’re imperfect, and no matter how good we think our marriages are, there is always room for improvement.

The great thing about the Christian community is that we can learn from one another. Consider Proverbs 27:17: “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”

We each have different experiences to share, different lessons that we have learned, and different mistakes that we can warn others against. Marriage seminars are the perfect opportunity both to give advice and to receive advice from fellow believers.

3. To become unified in your passion for God. 

The ultimate goal of marriage is to glorify God; anything else is deception. If you’re not basing your marriage on Christ, then how do you define marriage?  

Marriage is, essentially, a picture of God’s love for His people – Christ as the groom and the Church as His bride. So we are meant to reflect that beautiful picture of love and unity in our own relationships with our spouses.

Often, we forget that purpose. We see marriage as something simply meant to fulfill us. While God does intend for marriage to bring us fulfillment and joy, He desires even more that it would bring us closer to Him.

Marriage seminars are meant to unify and point us back to God’s will for our marriages and rediscover Him as our foundation. And when we fix our eyes on Him, everything else in our lives will fall into place.
