Helping Couples Around Sex & Money

A short course for leaders and church staff

Sex and money are two of the main pain points in marriage—yet you may hesitate to address them because they seem specialized or technical. You think they are not in your wheelhouse. But it turns out: the main issues running under the surface are relational and emotional and those are in your wheelhouse. This 2-hour short course will show you how to care for those you serve in these areas, what you should and should not try to tackle, and give you confidence that you can help couples in the way you have wanted.
