Tying the knot is easy, securing the knot is a different story.

You want to have the marriage God intended for you, but that is an impossible goal if you don't spend time investing in that relationship.  Secure the Knot is a one-day marriage enrichment workshop that will equip you through powerful biblical teaching and breakout sessions that cover some of the most common issues of conflict you face in your marriage.  We will also have a bookstore on-site where you can purchase deeply discounted books that will serve as great resources as you and your spouse grow together in Christ.

Breakout Sessions

Fighting Well

Conflict is part of every marriage, but fighting well can help build up instead of tearing down your relationship

Building Fences

Fences create boundaries that protect and send a vital message to would-be trespassers.

Flourishing in Every Season

Marriages progress through many seasons.  In this session you'll learn keys to enjoy every phase of life with your spouse.

Money, Matters!

Finances can help or hinder your marriage, but biblical principles can put your life together on a proper footing.

What is a Woman?

The only accurate answer to that question comes from the Creator Himself who knows exactly what He intended a woman to be...and in her role as a wife, He’s provided a treasure trove of applications.
*Women Only*

What Did You Expect?

Managing expectations in marriage is more important
than you might think.
