Love & Respect Marriage Conference: May 20-21

First Assembly of God will be hosting a Love and Respect Video Conference with Dr. Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs.

Whether married, divorced, separated, dating or single you don’t want to miss this important event!

The conference will be held on Friday, May 20th, from 6:45 p.m. – 10:15 p.m., and Saturday, May 21st, from 8:45 a.m. – 1:45 p.m.

The powerful truth about Love and Respect is that the conflicts couples experience are not the root problem. Successful couples know that harmony and happiness in marriage are not primarily achieved by solving daily problems.


Love and Respect is divided into three main sections:

  • The Crazy Cycle, which explains the simple reason why two good-willed people negatively react to each other;
  • The Energizing Cycle, which explains how two people can positively motivate one another by doing one simple thing; and,
  • The Rewarded Cycle, which unveils the rewards of a godly marriage and explains what a person can do if personal expectations are unmet by a spouse.

There will be five video sessions at the conference:

  • Session 1 – The Crazy Cycle
  • Session 2 – The Energizing Cycle – Part 1: How to Spell LOVE to a Woman
  • Session 3 – The Energizing Cycle – Part 2: How to Spell RESPECT to a Man
  • Session 4 – Practical Applications – Sarah Eggerichs
  • Session 5 – The Rewarded Cycle
