Married Life Seminar October 19, 2024


Registration Opens Soon


God uniquely designed you and your spouse to enjoy a fulfilling and rewarding life together.

The Married Life Seminar, with the aid of experienced coaches, will help you build a successful strategy for maximizing your relationship. Each couple will receive two (2) assessment links that they must fill out individually. This marriage assessment has been used by over 1 million couples to strengthen their marriages! Each person must complete the assessment individually and it should take about 30 minutes to complete. We will have your full assessment report printed out at your table when you arrive at the seminar. We will gear the seminar to delve deep into each section, to show you all the areas where you are rocking it and the areas that may need some improvement.

Most couples find that they keep the assessment report for years and continually go back to it to remind themselves of how they and their spouse are wired to give and receive love, respect, affection, as well as express the need for intimacy and so much more!


Married couples desiring to enjoy a stronger, healthier, and more satisfying marriage. So whether you are newly married, thriving after 40+ years, or feeling hurt and hopeless…this seminar is for you. With frankness, real-life experience, and humor, Pastors Anthony and Barbara Franklin will explore principles and strategies to help couples better understand each other, overcome obstacles to intimacy, strengthen communication, and build a romance that lasts a lifetime.


Pastors Anthony and Barbara Franklin are the Montclair Campus Pastors of Christ Church. The Franklins have used their more than 25 years of pastoral ministry experience to strengthen and restore countless marriages through seminars, retreats and one-on-one sessions. They are devoted to helping couples build strong marriages and healthy families. Anthony is a graduate of Alliance Theological Seminary. Barbara earned her degree in elementary education from Nyack College and is a child developmental specialist for the New Jersey Early Intervention System. Happily married since 1981, the Franklins are the proud parents of two adult daughters and five grandchildren.



The registration fee is per couple and covers both you and your spouse.
Yes, lunch is included. A few breakfast snacks and coffee will be available as well.
Each couple will take a world-class assessment designed to create lifelong love like never before. Over one million couples have taken this assessment and the reviews are astounding.
Although Christ Church cares deeply about your family, we do not allow children in our sessions, including nursing infants. This decision is made in order to keep your session free of distractions and as a courtesy to the other guests. We offer events that cater to the full family such as Elevate Family Conference (Elevate Marriage and Elevate Kids happening simultaneously) on a biannual basis.
The Married Life Seminar does not provide childcare. Please make arrangements prior to attending.
This seminar is an interactive workshop that is designed for both husband and wife to be present. Due to the nature of the content, this is a couple's-only seminar.
The Married Life Seminar is geared towards couples who have already been married.
We do make provisions for cancellations. We provide a full refund if we receive your cancellation no later than 2 weeks before the event. Cancellations after the cutoff date must be requested in writing and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
