AUSTIN, TX (May 26, 2006) – One of the first training sessions in the United States for a marriage course organized by the same church that produced the popular Alpha material will be held June 26 at St. Barnabas the Encourager Evangelical Covenant Church here.

In addition to Austin, three other cities will be sites for the one-day training: Greenland, New Hampshire, on June 21; Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 23; and Marin, California, on June 28.

Nicky and Silla Lee, who designed the course in 1996, are on staff at Holy Trinity Brompton, England in Brompton, England. Like Alpha, the course has proved popular in England.

Registration is $159 for a couple and $99 for individuals. Course leaders recommend that couples participate in the training together.

Registration for any of the conferences can be made online at Registration or by calling 1-866-872-5742.

The marriage course is held over eight evenings. Topics covered include learning to communicate effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurts, recognizing each other’s needs and how to make each other feel loved, as well as relationships with parents and in-laws, the importance of good sex, and how to have fun together.

Barbara Black, wife of Pastor Jeff Black, says, “There are a lot of marriage courses out there, and Jeff and I have been to several, but this is the best. This one is so accessible to people outside the church. It’s a great evangelism tool.”

The Lees discuss the role of Christ in their marriage, “but it’s real gentle,” says Barbara. “It’s something you can really experience, even if you don’t go to church.”
