Marriage counseling and working with families is one of the greatest things that we can do to help guide people toward Christ in their relationships. There is nothing more rich and rewarding than being able to spend a sacred moment with a couple and to help them turn around and get headed toward a better marriage, but it is also an arduous journey together. In CO201, Dr. Zink explores what a good marriage looks like and wrestles with understanding relationships more deeply. From premarital counseling to what marriage ministry in the church looks like, Dr. Zink demonstrates how you can be a better counselor to couples.
