7 Week Marriage Course

We run various courses through each school term at LIFE. All the courses we run are DVD based, which include discussion time by us and workbooks for the couples. Each session is usually of 2 hours duration each week.

One on One Marriage Mentors

We are very passionate to help Christian couples have a great marriage. Often couples can’t afford counselling and we feel that we can help fill in this gap. We are available to have sessions with Christian couples to help them reconnect in their marriage. Often one just needs someone who is not emotionally involved to help get you out of your negative spiral, rut etc. And this is where were come in.

So if you are in need of having a couple to help you move your marriage forward then we would love to hear from you.

4 Week Facilitator "Refresh your Marriage Course"

This is a course what we have put together from the XO Marriage Conference that Jimmy Evans runs every year. This is 4 sessions taken from the conference, which is various top speakers , ie. Jimmy Evans, Robert Morris, Tim Ross, Michael Todd etc. And run much like the 7 week courses. We run this to specifically feed into our Prepare-Enrich facilitators lives, as they spend the rest of the year feeding into other couples.

We came to Umberto & Jacquie as a Christian/Non-Christian couple in the hope of building a stronger relationship together. Through the weeks of couples and individual counselling with the Benucci’s, we were able to process our pasts and confirm that we could have a future together. It was during this time that we learnt the value in open communication, each other’s strengths and weaknesses, how to honour and encourage each other, to be secure within ourselves and as a couple and to have a God centred relationship.

We are so thankful for this ministry and for the continual guidance of Umberto & Jacquie.

Our marriage was ok; we’d been through some challenging times over an extended period and had learned to make it work. The problem was that we weren’t enjoying our marriage in the way that God had designed it, we weren’t working as a team or realising the potential in our combined abilities/gifts. We were “functional” rather than “one” and there was often tension in our home.

The combination of experience, love, discernment, encouragement, humour and accountability that Jax and Bert bring has really made a difference in our marriage and we can already see the fruit of it all in the way we are relating to each other, the kids, the feel in the house etc. We are really looking forward to taking a young marrieds group together and really supporting each other in the God calling for each of our lives and for our marriage.
