A Relationship Education Experience for Married Couples.
The Center leads educational and experiential one day retreat for couples that integrates a biblical worldview with the most empirically supported marriage model in the world, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Pioneered by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg, and outlined in Dr. Johnson’s latest work, Hold Me Tight, research studies have found that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements through the use of EFT. We believe some investments are worth protecting; your marriage is one of them.

PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple’s strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital counseling and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple’s assessment results, our trained therapists provide 4-8 feedback sessions in which the facilitator helps the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.
Your counselor will send you a link and a unique code to take your assessment online.
As part of the package, our counselors will also provide an annual “tune up”, making couples eligible for an hour of free counseling one year after the completion of premarital counseling.
