ABF Marriage Essentials










   MARRIAGE ESSENTIALS
   TUNE-UP, REPAIR AND ENRICH YOUR MARRIAGE

At Marriage Essentials, we explore a wide variety of helpful marriage-building tools. If you are married, or plan to be, there is no more important human relationship than the one you have with your spouse, or with the one to whom you are engaged.  
AGOURA BIBLE FELLOWSHIP schedules Sunday interactive workshops twice a month to supplement your weekly visits to ABF during most of the year.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF ABF MARRIAGE ESSENTIALS

These Marriage Essentials classes started at Agoura Bible Fellowship in February 2018, but there were some special Tuesday night programs in January 2014 that were very popular also. John Erwin hosted Dr Paul and Teri in the Worship Center while the AWANA children's program was happening on the rest of the campus. The parents attended these seminars:

   Intimacy in Marriage    BOOK 
    More than 1,416 have viewed this ABF website video    ABF VIDEO 

   Is There Sex After Kids? (PG-13)    BOOK 
    More than 1,667 have viewed this ABF website video    ABF VIDEO 

During the pandemic in 2020, Marriage Essentials was limited to Online presentations on a few Saturday evenings during that period.

Then on October 18, 2020, it resumed in The "wide-open" Well at Agoura Bible Fellowship.

On April 3, 2022, Marriage Essentials doubled to two sessions per month.

At Marriage Essentials, we explore a wide variety of helpful marriage-building tools. If you are married, or plan to be, there is no more important human relationship than the one you have with your spouse, or with the one to whom you are engaged.   

A healthy marriage:
  - Honors God. 
  - Benefits individuals, children, families, communities and nations
  - Is ground zero for spiritual and personal growth
  - Requires ongoing attention and effort, like any worthwhile endeavor

In 2022, our Marriage Essentials sessions have been providing some valuable tools to help you assess both strengths and areas that could use some growth – or perhaps some major repair work -- in your marriage.  This isn’t just theoretical: We’ve rolled up our sleeves and worked together on a number of important tasks that are helping you build a healthy, thriving marriage. Join us!

Our in-house counselor (Teri Reisser, MFT) and family physician (Paul Reisser, M.D.) are leading these sessions.  
(NOTE – Couples pay good money to learn what we are teaching here FREE.)
