Facilitator training is full on for the brave couples giving up a whole weekend to be trained and for the people delivering the training. However, it’s BRILLIANT!
Our couples rushed to Birmingham on Friday evening. Several were slightly anxious. Most were wondering what on earth they had let themselves in for.
Each year we invite a number of couples to train and join the FamilyLife team as facilitators. We believe the couples have the qualities to represent FamilyLife and have a heart to help couples and families in their communities. The training weekend equips them to make presentations at events, such as ‘A Day Together’, and lead ‘Together’ small groups.
Some of their comments about the weekend:
“The training was fantastic and fun, even though we learned a lot! We feel more empowered as a couple.”
“Powerful, motivated, inspired and more encouraged.”
“I felt supported all the way through.”
“It helped me more in myself and that we can help other couples with their own marriages.”
Everyone left on Sunday with big smiles on their faces. We think you’ll enjoy hearing their stories at an event near you. If you see any of our wonderful new couples do say ‘hello’.
