This past weekend we had Mike and Gayle Tucker from Faith for Today at our church. Their website states:
"Faith For Today has had a television broadcast on the air each week since May 1950. Faith For Today's Lifestyle Magazine, The Evidence, and McDougall M.D. are broadcast around the world over the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) each week."Recently the Tuckers have launched a marriage workshop called Mad about Marriage. They have already traveled to several places and we were blessed to have them this past weekend. Some may ask, 'Why Mad about marriage seminar?' The Tuckers will answer, "...some of us are madly in love, and some are just plain mad." The workshop covers a broad range of issues beginning with the ideal that God had for marriage 'oneness' along with:
- Negative Communication
- Lack of Spirituality
- Too little sex
- Addiction/Substance Abuse
- Negative Past
They began on Friday night with two sessions, Pastor Tucker preached for our worship service on Sabbath morning and then we continued the workshop with three sessions after a fellowship lunch. Mike and Gayle tag teamed the entire seminar and they truly did a great job covering nearly all the topics above.
It was also a pleasure for my wife and I to spend some time and glean knowledge about ministry from them being they had previously pastored the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist church for 17 years that has a membership of about 2,000.
I highly recommend the Mad about Marriage workshop for two main reasons. First and foremost in a society in which our divorce rate is projected to be 40-50 percent there is no doubt that our churches need marriage seminars such as this to help our broken homes. Yet the key to this seminar as it would be to any is to actually put what we hear into practice.
Secondly though the Tuckers truly make it affordable for a church of nearly any size to be able to have them come. All of the materials are provided free by Faith for Today and they do not charge an honorarium only travel, and even that because they travel so much they get for a very fair price. It's a win situation for everyone.
Once again Mike and Gayle thanks for blessing our church...
So what are you waiting for? Give them a call, tell your church, pastor and have them over!
