Abstract
The desire to help pastors is heartfelt. Some pastors may not feel confident enough to help couples whose marriages are in distress. Couples sometimes seek help from their pastors and many pastors are placed on the “frontlines” and can be of tremendous help if equipped. However, if the pastor does not seem confident and competent, a couple may leave the meeting not feeling hopeful about their marriage. The researcher led eighteen pastors through a two-day marriage enrichment training workshop called “Hope Conquers Distress.” The workshop provided pastors with the tools necessary to provide immediate practical steps, implement ongoing solutions, and make necessary referrals to help couples to heal and avoid the many disasters associated with distressed marriages. Pre- and Post-training surveys were given before and immediately after the training, in order to measure any changes in competency and confidence of the pastors when working with couples that were experiencing distressed marriages. Subsequent surveys were given at one, three, and six months intervals after training. Initial findings show that there were increased levels of both competence and confidence of the pastor.
