Episode 255 - Why You Must Focus On MarriedPeople in Your Small Church with Ted Lowe from the reThink Group
The number one thing that I HATE hearing people tell engaged or newly married couples is this:
"Marriage is hard work!"
And I get it, that bit of "advice" comes from a good place. People who have been married a long time (I'm going on 10 years and Jeff is past 30) know that there are times in every relationship where things DO get hard and they want to prepare young couples for that eventuality. But it just sounds so HARSH. Marriage may be hard work, but it's also supposed to be fun, right?
Well, Ted Lowe and the folks at MarriedPeople.org seem to think so! They have created some amazing marriage resources and have been working for years with churches and leaders to create curriculum that could be a huge benefit to your church.
Today, Ted joins Jeff on the podcast to talk about marriage ministry in churches and his passion for seeing churches not always being REACTIVE to the hard stuff that comes up in marriages, but PROACTIVE about building good marriages from the start.
If you've been looking for a great resources for married people in your church, don't miss this podcast and don't miss checking out MarriedPeople.org.
