Marriage & Ministry

Deep Dive from Doug and Kathy Fields | This Deep Dive will focus on the priority of marriage in the midst of ministry. Marriage isn’t easy and ministry is tough. When the two are combined, it’s very difficult. Married for 33 years and both veterans in youth ministry, Doug and Cathy Fields have spent their entire marriage in youth ministry. This course will focus on the vulnerability of a ministry marriage and offer many positive and practical ideas on how to keep your marriage growing, even under ministry stress. Some of the subjects covered include pace: overcommitted and under-connected, potential problems in youth ministry marriages, spouse involvement, children, sex, finances, spiritual growth, communication, conflict, dealing with external expectations, the calendar and much more. You’ll be reassured that you’re not alone in your issues and will be guided toward a healthy path, whether you’re newlyweds or have been married for many years.
