Learn how to support couples on the journey to spiritually strong marriages.
Weddings are threshold moments, with the potential for deep spiritual transformation of the couple and all who participate and witness the ceremony. Celebrants have the potential to offer something of significance to a couple at this milestone in co-creating a personal, heartfelt ceremony. Just as important is offering tools to help couples look beyond the wedding day and have tools to build a meaningful life together. The workshop will equip ministers and officiants with resources and tools for working with couples on the journey to spiritually strong marriages as well as concrete practices to build a professional wedding business.
In this highly interactive class, you have an opportunity to envision your wedding ministry as a celebrant by articulating your unique offerings. We will cover best practices in creating meaningful and inclusive ceremonies, providing spiritual guidance and support to couples, and, concrete skills in building a professional wedding business. Whether youʼre just starting out or are already an experienced celebrant, you will strengthen and expand your wedding ministry!
