MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT

Nurturing Strong Partnerships in Healthcare Marriages

The Marriage Enrichment Ministry was started by Christian Medical & Dental Associations® members who saw a need to minister to married healthcare professionals. This ministry provides four to six conferences per year, known as Marriage Enrichment Weekends to provide healthcare couples with an opportunity to nurture and grow in their marital relationships.

The conferences are led by members of the Marriage Commission of CMDA. They have a three-fold format consisting of brief information sessions, private time for couples to work on assignments to assess their marital relationship and small group sessions which address the unique needs and stresses of healthcare marriages.

The effects of today's healthcare professions have taken its toll on marriages. Increasing time pressures, fiscal burdens, continuing education requirements, and countless demands have made building strong marriage relationships all the more difficult.

General Information

The weekend conference offers a three-fold format consisting of brief information sessions, private time for couples to work on assignments to assess their own marital relationship, and small group sharing sessions which address the unique needs and stresses of healthcare marriages. The Marriage Enrichment Weekend will help you to:

  • Have a healthier marriage
  • Improve communication
  • Develop spiritual intimacy
  • Achieve balanced priorities
  • Rekindle romance

Commuters

Our preference is that you reserve the time and resources to stay in the conference hotel for maximum benefit. Commuters tend to benefit less if responsibilities of children, home and work are not set aside during the weekend. Your marriage will reap greater dividends if the full time of the conference is devoted to marriage enrichment.

Children

Although CMDA feels that children are very special, we request that you do not bring them to the conference. To get the most out of the weekend, it is best if these responsibilities are set aside for the weekend so you can focus on your marital relationship.

Accommodations

Please make your own hotel reservations by calling the phone number listed, unless otherwise noted. Identify yourself with the CMDA Marriage Enrichment Conference. The selected hotels provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere which will enable you to rekindle your partnership and enjoy your time away from the responsibilities of home, work and children.
