Together, Building Marriages for Life

Coming Up

Family For Life Simulcast

September 25, 6-8:00pm
At Grace Church (Berlin, OH) and steamed live

Marriage affects family and family affects marriage. The two go hand in hand so we are looking to build both! The Family For Life Simulcast is a free event: free to attend live in Berlin, OH, and free to stream to your own venue for your own family-building event. Whether children are young or grown, parents are married, single, or blended, and even grandparents raising children will find this one-night event encouraging, informative, and inspiring.

SEATING AT THE LIVE EVENT IS LIMITED SO REGISTRATION FOR THESE FREE TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE SEPTEMBER 1, 2022.

We’re excited to welcome back Dan Seaborn, guest speaker at MFL2022. Dan is the founder of Winning at Home (http://www.winningathome.com) and an engaging and powerful speaker. Through energetic and memorable presentations, Dan talks openly about marriage and family life–often through revealing his own struggles and failures.

In addition to being an international speaker and president of the organization, Dan serves as the leader for the Marriage & Family Division of the American Association of Christian Counselors. He is also the author of 12 books released to date, and has established himself as a media personality on over 350 radio stations across the nation. He and his wife, Jane, have been married for over 30 years, have four adult children and six grandchildren.

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.
