Concordia Seminary to Host Prepare-Enrich Workshop

Concordia Seminary will offer a Prepare-Enrich workshop on Saturday, March 14, to be held on the Seminary campus. The workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m.

The Prepare-Enrich workshop is designed to teach facilitators how to use the Prepare-Enrich program with premarital and married couples. Prepare-Enrich is a program based on a set of five inventories that examine major relationship issues couples may experience. These inventories must be administered by a trained Prepare-Enrich counselor and include four to six feedback sessions in which the counselor facilitates discussion between couples based on the inventory results.

The Prepare-Enrich workshop will be facilitated by Rev. Jeffery S. Schubert, executive director of district and congregational services at The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s International Center in St. Louis, Mo. He is a certified trainer in Prepare-Enrich and is recognized for his national and international leadership in marriage enrichment.

Pre-registration by March 6 is required. Registration for Prepare-Enrich is $175 per person ($125 for the Seminary community). The registration fee includes the Comprehensive Counselor Manual, five inventories, Building a Strong Marriage Workbook and online scoring. Lunch is available in the Seminary Dining Hall at a cost of $6.
