Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the best-selling “The Five Love Languages,” will host a seminar titled “The Marriage You’ve Always Wanted,” Saturday, Sept. 22, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Milligan College’s McGlothlin-Street Theatre of the Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts.
Online registration for the seminar is now open through Sept. 21 at www.moodyconferences.com and is available at the door on the day of the event.
A marriage counselor for more than 35 years, Chapman serves as the senior associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, N.C. He hosts a nationally syndicated radio program, “Love Language Minute,” and a Saturday morning program, “Building Relationships with Dr. Gary Chapman,” that air on more than 400 stations. His book, “The Five Love Languages,” has sold more than 7 million copies and earned a spot on The New York Times Best Sellers list.
Chapman’s goals for the conference include helping couples keep their marriages growing and to equip them to minister to other couples who turn to them for help with their marriage. With biblical advice and a healthy dose of laughter, Chapman gives valuable tips on breaking unhealthy patterns and choosing to develop a God-honoring, happy marriage.
Couples both married and engaged will benefit from practical sessions addressing topics like communication differences, dealing with criticism and understanding love languages.
“Marriages either get better or they get worse,” Chapman said. “They never stand still. Most people prefer a growing marriage.
“I want to share a vision for starting or developing marriage enrichment in your church. I believe that biblically-based marriage enrichment is the key to saving thousands of marriages,” he added.
Tickets for the seminar are $75 per couple or $40 per individual if registered before Sept. 21. Tickets the day of the conference are $50 per person. Group rates also are available. For more information or to register, visit www.moodyconferences.com.
