Help for Couples Recovering from Adultery or Pornography: Video Tandem 8 of 9

When sexual sin impacts a marriage there is often a great deal of confusion exacerbated by shame. A couple is not sure what to do and is embarrassed to ask for help. The result is often either passivity (pretending everything is okay or that things will get better without help) or reactivity (taking a bold action with little sense of purpose or intent to follow through). The False Love and True Betrayal series are meant to provide couples with guidance for these difficult times.

These two, complementing seminars are each comprised of 9 steps and are meant to supplement a mentoring or counseling relationship. The presentation material is longer for the earlier steps than it is for the latter steps for two reasons. First, the early steps are the time of greatest confusion and, therefore, require more guidance. Second, once a solid foundation is laid for restoration the latter steps become more self-evident.

These materials are meant to guide a couple through the marital restoration phase — taking a marriage that is broken or in crisis and getting back to basic working order.

The Creating a Gospel-Centered Marriage seminar series is meant to guide a couple through the marital enrichment phase — taking a marriage that is in basic working order and refining it to be increasingly, mutually satisfying. Often it is a misunderstanding between restoration and enrichment that derails a couples sincere efforts at marital reconciliation after the discovery of sexual sin.

There is great value in saying something in a memorable, concise manner. Twitter has caused us to make this a near spiritual discipline. For my own growth (as a generally verbose individual… that’s a long way of saying “wordy”) and for the benefit of others, I highlight tweets each week that deliver a big message in a few words.

And one because it’s funny (and true)…

In 90 Minutes and with a Few Experienced Couples Your Church Can Have a Comprehensive Pre-Marital Mentoring Ministry

Welcome to the “Creating a Gospel-Centered Marriage” pre-marital mentoring page. We want this page to provide everything you need to provide every engaged couple in your church with a mentor couple who can walk them through a comprehensive pre-marital program. We also want to see the experienced marriages in your church enriched as they invest in engaged couples who are just beginning their marital journey.

In this 3 minute video I orient you to the ministry model and content you’ll find below.

If you want the complete training we provide to our mentors, we have included that video next. Here is the training notebook that is referenced in this training (GCM Mentor Training). Feel free to use this training video for mentors at your church until you have an experienced mentor prepared to lead a comparable training.

Here is the single page job description we provide to mentors to overview their responsibilities (Job Description — GCM Mentor) and how to utilize the materials found below.

Pre-Marital Mentor Training from Equip on Vimeo.

After completing this much of the training, you should be equipped to utilize the resources below as a pre-marital mentor. Mentoring is meant to be a cooperative learning experience. The relational strengths and weaknesses of each engaged couple, as revealed by the evaluations for each seminar, will take each mentoring relationship on a slightly different path. Learning the new story of each engaged couple and taking slightly different emphases in each of the five key areas is meant to keep mentoring fresh for the experienced couples investing in this ministry.

Here are a few other preface resources you may be interested in reviewing.

  • Mentor Page – this is the page where we update FAQ’s from mentors and provide other tools our mentors would need.
  • Engaged Couple Page – this is the page where we direct our engaged couples to get what they need for each meeting with their mentor.
  • Why Mentoring for Pre-Marital Counseling? – this is 7 minute video where I describe why we chose mentoring as our pre-marital model.

NOTE: Many people have asked how they can get a copy of the seminar notebooks for each of these seminars. Summit members can pick up a copy of the notebook in the church office. For those outside the Summit family, you can request a copy from Amy LaBarr (alabarr@summitrdu.com), office administrator over counseling.
