Since 2008, I’ve served hundreds of couples through marriage coaching and also trained church leaders in building dynamic marriage ministries. Here is how I can help you serve the couples in your church.
The Marriage Checkup Seminar
Couples looking for enrichment in their relationship, as well as couples in crisis, will discover valuable insights and Biblically-based marriage skills through this in-depth workshop. The Marriage Checkup utilizes the PREPARE/ENRICH Marriage Assessment, the nation’s leading relationship assessment tool for over 30 years. Each couple receives a customized report detailing their strength and growth areas and more. Topics covered include: communication, conflict resolution, forgiveness, family finances, sexual intimacy and achieving goals together.
The Marriage Checkup can be done in a one-day 8 hour workshop or spread out over a two day retreat. Couples must complete the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment at least one day prior to the seminar beginning.
Preparation For Marriage Seminar
Looking for a premarital counseling event for engaged couples? Th Preparation For Marriage Seminar teach couples the Biblical basis for marriage as well as what the Bible says about critical marriage skills, such as communication and conflict resolution. Engaged couples will also have opportunities to dialogue about what they learn, how they will apply it to their marriage and how to adjust their expectations of each other. Preparation For Marriage also utilizes the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment.

Marriage Ministry Coaching
In 2012, Ben became a trainer for PREPARE-ENRICH, helping clergy and counseling centers become Certified P/E Facilitators and developing dynamic marriage ministries in their churches. He has also developed a supplemental tool to the Prepare-Enrich Workbook called, The Three Filters of Communication, that helps leaders guide couples to identify the areas of their unique relationship that cause the most conflict.
In 2016, Ben began leading the Marriage Ministry at Sugar Creek Baptist Church, in Sugar Land TX. Since then, Sugar Creek has served nearly 300 hundred couples in strengthening their marriage through groups, pastoral counseling and marriage mentors.
