"National Marriage Week USA" Informational Webinar
With Chuck Colson & nationally-known pastors

New research reports that the percentage of United States’ adults who are married has dropped from 78 percent in 1970 to 57 percent in 2008, according to the recently released report, “The Marriage Index,” co-published by the Institute for American Values and the National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting (NCAAMP). Even more concerning, 40 percent of all American children today are born out-of-wedlock and 71 percent of African American children are born without married parents.

Research also shows that single mothers have only one-third the financial assets as married mothers.* Children not brought up by both a mother and father have lower graduation rates, higher incidence of incarceration, and lower performance in school.** For the sake of women and children, the church must get involved to strengthen, enrich, and repair marriage.

There is no question that more needs to be done within our congregations to create a more thriving marriage culture and assist marriages and families to remain happily intact. The church can play a truly unique role as a “school” for marriage. National Marriage Week USA (February 7th to 14th) offers a relevant new way for the church to reach out beyond its own doors into the needs of its community. (www.nationalmarriageweekUSA.org)

National Marriage Week USA, February 7-14, provides an ideal opportunity!

In January 2010 Chuck Colson and pastors and other interested marriage and family leaders from coast-to-coast presented how to incorporate a National Marriage Week USA emphasis into what you are already doing at your church to strengthen and support marriage and families. In a historic webinar gathering via computer, you will hear from a wide-range of participants sharing about opportunities, programs, tools and resources available as you plan a sermon series, develop an ongoing marriage enrichment program for your families, make marriage education materials and resources more widely available to your congregation and community, expand discussions with your youth about what it means to be a godly husband and wife, host or co-host a marriage conference in your area, learn about the successful implementation of National Marriage Week in other countries, and much more.

Please register for this FREE webinar at www.marriagewebinar.org if you would like to take part in this powerful one-hour audio and visual webinar presentation. You can join from your computer with broadband connection or project on a screen if you would like to invite others -- especially pastors -- to join you from your community.

We look forward to this important gathering as together we strengthen and promote marriage and family! Please REGISTER NOW and we will confirm your registration immediately and send you call in and log in information when we get closer to the date.
