Family For Life Simulcast

Marriages affect the family and families affect the marriage. This is why we at Marriage For Life are just as interested in building up the family as well…regardless of if your married or single, parenting a blended family, have adult children, are are grandparents raising children (grandchildren) a second time around.

The Family For Life Simulcast is a free one night event which is hosted live in Berlin, Ohio, at Grace Church or can be streamed live into your church or home creating family-building experiences for entire churches, small groups, or for you as a couple or single parent. Contact Marriage For Life for more details about becoming a host church for the FFL Simulcast in October.

For the FFL Simulcast, we will welcome back MFL2021 guest speakers, Dr. Greg and Erin Smalley. Dr. Smalley is the Vice President of Marriage at Focus on the Family and Erin is the process of staring her own counseling clinic in the Colorado Springs, Colorado, community. As parents of four children–both biological and adopted–they bring honest and funny real-life experiences from their own parenting adventures as well as professional expertise to present an authentic experience that will encourage grandparents and parents alike to build families for life.

HISTORY

IN 2006…

Our founders, Beau and Nicole Hummel, observed that young married couples didn’t attend marriage events because they cost too much or, because of young children or jobs, couldn’t find the time to attend. This birthed the idea of creating a marriage event for couples married 15 years and under that removed barriers that kept people from attending by keeping it short and affordable.

2009-2018

As the event grew, Marriage For Life moved to the Carlisle Inn Sugarcreek and began bringing in better known speakers (Greg and Erin Smalley, Ted Lowe, Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn, and Dan Seaborn), adding additional hotels, additional evenings, and opening the event up to couples of all ages. In 2018, we moved to the Ohio Star Theater but after selling out in just 3 hours, another move had to be made.

2019-TODAY

MFL moved to The Amish Country Theater where it hosts four separate but identical events. Staying true to our mission to keep events affordable, we raise over $100,000 each year in private funds. This allows us to keep costs low and bring in excellent communicators, expanding our reach to all of northeastern and central Ohio and as many as 10 additional states.
