Run a course in person


Why run a course?

We believe that strong, healthy marriages leave a wonderful legacy, benefiting children, church communities and the wider society.

Our hope and prayer is that this course will not only be a means of strengthening the marriages of participants, but it will also bring blessing to all who fall under the influence of these marriages.

Building a Safe & Strong Marriage is based on marriage enrichment courses that Keith & Sarah Condie have been running for over 15 years. The five sessions have developed over time, in response to feedback and new insights. This course has benefited hundreds of couples over the years.

Building a safe marriage

The course is simple to run:

The Facilitator Manual provides simple instructions on how to host your course.
You are not required to provide teaching input. It’s all provided for you. All you have to do is host each session.
The five sessions include designated breaks for discussion time in couples.
The course format means it can be used by individual couples in their own home or run in a larger venue with more couples.

This course draws upon wisdom from two main sources: the Bible and marriage research.

Much of what the research affirms about healthy and happy marriages is consistent with principles outlined in the Bible. We believe this course will benefit any marriage, even if participants don’t share our faith commitment.


How to run a course

  1. Find a venue and set the dates for your Building a Safe & Strong Marriage course.
  2. Purchase course resources: download the sessions or purchase the DVD, together with the Facilitator Manual and two Participant Workbooks per couple. If you are playing the course through a computer, we strongly recommend downloading the sessions, as the downloads provide a better picture quality for computers.
  3. Decide whether you want to charge participants to cover expenses.
  4. Download the free promotional materials to promote your course.
