Annual Conference on Marriage

Giving couples tools they need in their daily life to grow stronger and happier.


FFI knows that a thriving marriage and family life takes effort! The Annual Conference on Marriage gives couples tools they can use in their daily life to grow stronger and happier. Every marriage has its joys and challenges. Some challenges reach crisis levels. Whether faced with a crisis or not, marriages are strengthened when given support and encouragement from other married couples.

“Built on love” presents the idea that married couples need to reach out to help, encourage, and journey with others; however, to do so, it is necessary to build the marriage on a strong foundation. Ultimately, this theme seeks to provide helpful tools to build and apply strong marriages in our world today.

Date: Saturday, November 16
