Your Church. Their Marriage. Stronger Together!

Thriving marriages are the key to a thriving church and community. Focus on the Family offers a way for couples to jumpstart a stalled relationship and mend the pain and separation caused by challenges in life and family. We provide everything you need for your church to be successful as you host your own unique marriage event for couples in your community.

For Churches: Host an Event

Journey To Us

Marriage is a journey. But like any journey, it’s easy for couples to lose their way. Bring a two-day experience to marriages in your congregation designed to help couples find their way back to a marriage that feels like the safest place on earth.

Focus on the Family presents Resist the Drift, a two-day marriage event. Our trained marriage specialists share their story and what they learned as they moved from roommates to soulmates in their marriage. Couples will receive Bible-based ideas and tools to reconnect and strengthen their marriages!

Orchestrated to be the perfect date night for couples in your church, Love Laugh Pursue is a one-night comedy event that features Ted Cunningham, a pastor, comedian, and host who uniquely ushers in healing and guidance through laughter for marriages of all kinds!
