When I was at North Point Community Church overseeing MarriedLife Live (a quarterly event for married couples), we had many leaders from other churches come and observe. They wanted to see if they could create a similar environment at their churches. While church leaders loved the nights—the interaction, the games, the videos, and the message—they often felt overwhelmed. They would even say to me afterwards, “I loved tonight, but there is no way we could pull something like this off.” Then some would say, “Do you have anything to help us make this happen?” The answer at the time was, “No, not really.” What I wanted to say was:
“Yes, absolutely! We have everything laid out for you:
The program order;
The graphics for the night and promotion;
The Host script and games;
The funny videos;
The message on video.”
My desire to be able to answer that question well, was one of the primary reasons I started MarriedPeople. Now I can honestly say to all churches that want to create a great night for married couples: “Yes! We have everything you need to create an incredible night for couples.”
If this feels like a shameless plug for a product, it is. We have watched countless church leaders create incredible nights that they are proud of, that men love and that make a real difference in the lives of married couples. I’m proud of what we create, and I don’t want couples to miss out because church leaders are so busy. This is a resource that can turn what would have been a cliché Valentine’s Day into a great night of connection for the couples of your church. We have four events to choose from and four more coming January 1. You can do this!
From 2001–2010, Ted Lowe worked as the director of MarriedLife at North Point Community Church. His wife, Nancie, played a huge role in hosting and planning MarriedLife programs at North Point. It was during their time at North Point that they decided they not only wanted to help the married people at North Point, but married people at churches all over the world. So, in partnership with Orange and church leaders everywhere they are working fast and furiously to HELP CHURCHES HELP MARRIAGES. They have three children: Chapman (10), Judson (7), and Teddie (5), and live in Cumming, Georgia. You can follow Ted on Twitter and Facebook.
