Unbroken marriage training


We work with YOU to provide an experience that will truly make a difference in marriages and families in your local church and community!

Our Inspiration

Shortly afer our marriage in 1985, we attended our first marriage conference- "Weekend To Remember". It changed our lives!  Since then, we've worked to create a conference that would serve as the catalyst for building mighty marriages. 

We have spent most of our married lives discovering and sharing the strategies, tools, and processes needed to promote God's Plan for Marriage and the Family.

Our efforts have culminated in this event- the Unbroken Marriage Bootcamp. All across this country, from city to city and state to state, we bring thousands of couples together for a life changing journey leading to relationship success.  Whether you're just married or you've happily (or unhappily) married for years, this bootcamp is for you!  

What is Unbroken Marriage Bootcamp?

Engaged?  Married?  Remarried?  We want to help you rekindle the feelings your had when you first met.  Often times, when couples lose that spark, they think there is no way for them to get it back.  This leads to divorce and ultimately breaking up families.  But the answer to your problems is right in front of you! 


Isn't it interesting that the average couple spends almost $30,000 and over 250 hours on the wedding and less that 2 hours and $100 on their marriage?  If you want to have a successful marriage, you need to invest time and money in it.  You can't do what you don't know, but you can learn how to be a better each other.  We know because we have walked this journey.  
Before I continue, let me clear up some misconceptions about this Bootcamp.  Unbroken is
NOT a large group counseling session or small group discussion. You won't be asked to share intimate details of your relationship with anyone.

You will listen to exciting, entertaining, and engaging talks from marriage experts, who will share, in a completely open and transparent way, their struggles, their strategies, and how they learned to succeed.

You leave the conference with an arsenal of powerful, Bible-based tools and skills you will use for years to come.
