Marriage Enrichment Weekends / for Healthcare Professionals offered by CMDA

Marriage Enrichment

I helped launch and director The Marriage Enrichment Ministry with some CMDA members who saw a need to minister to married healthcare professionals.  This grew out of my Masters in Marriage & Family degree from RTS in Jackson, MS.  I started offering weekend Medical Marriage Enrichment Retreats primarily for students and residents at the University of MS Medical & Dental Schools in the mid 1980s when I served as a regional director and as the national director of Marriage & Family Ministries for CMDA.  This ministry continued by CMDA provides four to six conferences per year 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. 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.  Click on the banner above for more information.  Ron Lively, MDiv., MA
