What does it cover?
This is an opportunity for couples in leadership to fine-tune their marriage and (optionally) to be equipped to run a similar event in their own church where it works really well after the Freedom In Christ Discipleship Course.
Compassionate instruction and direction will help you make sure that Christ is right at the centre of your relationship. You will be given the opportunity to go through the Steps To Setting Your Marriage Free, a process that will help you deal with footholds of the enemy that may have held your marriage back, and then to renew your marriage vows. There will be time and space for each couple to work privately and confidentially, prompted by the Holy Spirit. It's a life-changing experience!
Topics covered include:
• Establishing God's priority for marriage
• Balancing rights and responsibilities
• Releasing old hurts
• Breaking cycles of abuse
• Breaking sexual bondage
• Unmasking Satan's deception
By going through the material, you will also be equipped to run retreats for people in your church who have already been through The Freedom In Christ Discipleship Course.
Please note: It is essential that, before the retreat, you have been through the basic Freedom In Christ teaching (by going through the FIC Discipleship Course or reading the corresponding books) and that you have both been through the Steps To Freedom In Christ ministry process in an indvidual appointment.
We also recommend that, before the conference, you read Setting Your Marriage Free by Neil Anderson.
