Marriage Enrichment

Rebecca and her husband Larry are trained marriage enrichment leaders. For over eighteen years, they have been leading marriage enrichment retreats in churches over the Southwest. They have served as leaders with Henry Blackaby in his Experiencing God Weekend for Couples and were conference leaders in the Fall Festival of Marriage (SBC).

“Most of our marriage enrichment weekends involve 10 – 30 couples. Our format is not seminar, but couple-experience oriented. We balance teaching skills and concepts with many opportunities for couples to interact and draw closer in marriage intimacy. In our weekend retreats, couples do not just listen—they participate!”
Larry and Rebecca Jordan, fishing Among other things, we spend time renewing romance and working on communication   skills–couple to couple. Good communication is vital to marriage. It’s a lot like fishing: “A plan in the heart of a man [woman] is like deep water. But the man [woman] of understanding draws it out” (Proverbs 20:5 NASB).

“Larry and Rebecca have led two of our marriage enrichment retreats in two different settings… They did an outstanding job at both and our couples were truly blessed. Their teaching is aimed at practical issues that all couples face. They also provide plenty of valuable time for couples to share their thoughts with each other…Our couples left the retreat feeling challenged yet refreshed. Relationships of both younger and older couples were strengthened. I have always enjoyed their servant hearts and the manner in which they have prepared for the weekend. When asked, they are easily at the top of my list of recomendations for this type of ministry.” – Terry Bowman, Pastor
