Used by over 500 pastors across Canada, USA, Great Britain and Australia as their preferred resource in preparing couples for marriage, this Canadian best seller has influenced nearly 6000 individuals in their marriage preparation. This user- friendly tool designed for busy pastors works like this: The bride and groom-to-be each receive their own copy and prior to their first one hour session they read the first chapter, answer the questions, and come prepared to discuss their findings. Throughout the chapter are interactive questions and at the end of each chapter is a summary and questions to create discussion. This process is repeated for six sessions. Additionally, there is a seventh chapter for couples that are getting remarried.
Whether worked through with a pastor/mentor, or on your own, this resource is filled with biblical teaching, personal examples and humour. It will help lay a solid foundation on which couples can build their married lives.
“I recommend the Couple Care Marriage Preparation Manual as a resource for pastors and mentors who want to prepare couples for marriage through Christ centered instruction and discovery. Bob and Penny Armstrong have leverage their marriage and parent experience with their pastor and counsellor wisdom to give us a practical and valuable tool for guiding couples toward an amazing marriage.”
