Prepare/Enrich Marriage Preparatory Training


PREPARE/ENRICH is the leading relationship assessment and skills-building program used nationally and internationally, built on a solid research foundation and proven to significantly improve a couple’s relationship. The Customised Version of the inventory developed in 2009, assesses a broad range of couple functioning dimensions and is an excellent tool to help couples have a better understanding about what they may expect from a successful, happy and rewarding marriage relationship.

Fresh Hope is hosting PREPARE/ENRICH for two days in August. This training is targeted at our current Churches of Christ marriage celebrants. You may still attend if you are not a registered marriage celebrant, however attendance does not guarantee nomination as a celebrant.
