Message from Eric and Jennifer
On behalf of the entire team, we are so excited as we look forward in seeing so many of you in August at the eighth annual National Marriage and Family Ministry Training Conference. This conference is the premier conference for those serving in marriage and family ministry and we don't want you to miss out on the opportunity to be a part of it so please read below for more details.
In this newsletter you will also find information on the fourth annual community wide marriage enrichment event in Vermont, Passionate Intimacy Workshop, hosted by Dave and Dawn Lind. You will also not want to miss the introduction of the new book Facebook and Your Marriage by our good friends K. Jason and Kelli Krafsky.
And lastly, we want to give you a short report on the March Goodness competition we were involved in last month.
National Conference 2010
With each conference, we strive to make it better than the last and this year is no different.
We'll be kicking things off with marriage expert and best-selling author of The Five Love Languages, Dr. Gary Chapman on Opening Night.
During lunchtime, we'll highlight relevant topics in marriage and family and will host a technology lab during one of the evenings. And as always, we will have the best of the best in marriage and family ministry heading up the workshops.
We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
