A Healthy Marriage

A healthy marriage is the foundation of a successful ministry. Let's face it! If the marriage and family are struggling, everything struggles!

Pastoring is tough regardless of the circumstances, but attempting to revitalize a plateaued or a declining church can put extreme pressures on a marriage and family! 

Brent and his wife, Beth, were married in 2001 and have 4 children. He has pastored three churches, each one being a revitalization work. Bro. Madaris became a certified Symbis marriage  facilitator  / mentor in 2019.

If you would like to take the Symbis marriage assessemetnsend my a message and we will connect you with the assessment!
