Athletes do it; career minded people do it; even young mothers do it. They look to a mentor – someone who offers wisdom, encouragement and an example to follow. Going the long-haul in marriage takes all the support we can get so why not have a marriage mentor? Husband, author, preacher, and trainer Matt Loehr [LARE] will introduce a plan to equip key married couples to mentor others, especially those in crisis. Be the ones who dare to help others toward a God-honoring marriage! With training, your marriage could be the life-line another couple needs to survive and thrive!
Matt Loehr, Founder and President of Dare to be Different, along with his wife Pam, have led the organization to a national level training thousands of couples all over the world to mentor other couples. Leaving their previous careers (in engineering and nursing) they sought to pursue their passion and calling into Marriage Ministry. As a husband, author, preacher, and trainer, Matt powerfully delivers truth that's coupled with humor and sprinkled with everyday life application.
