Prepare/Enrich Workshop Coming Soon

Concordia Seminary will offer a Prepare/Enrich workshop on Saturday, March 13, 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 workshop will be facilitated by Rev. Jeffery S. Schubert, executive pastor at Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church, Hartland, Wis. He previously served as 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 February 26 is required. Registration for Prepare/Enrich is $190 per person ($175 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 $6.50.
