People who want to keep their marriages strong are invited to a seminar at Mississippi College with author and minister Gary Chapman.
The event is set for September 8 at Anderson Hall on the Clinton campus. Tickets are now on sale.
Chapman’s “A Growing Marriage” conference is designed to stimulate healthy marriages. The senior associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, he believes that biblically based marriage enrichment is the key to saving thousands of marriages.
The author of the bestseller “The Five Love Languages,” Chapman holds a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Illinois, a master’s at Wake Forest and doctorate in adult education at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Chapman speaks extensively throughout the U.S. and internationally on marriage, family and relationships. Following his Mississippi College visit, he conducts a marriage seminar at Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina on September 15 and travels to Milligan College in Tennessee on September 22.
Sales have exceeded five million copies for “The Five Love Languages.” The popular book has been translated into more than 36 languages. Chapman has authored 27 other books, including “God Speaks Your Love Language,” and produced five video programs.
The North Carolina minister and his wife, Karolyn, have two adult children and two grandchildren.
Topics at his family life seminars deal with subjects such as communication, initiating positive change in a marriage, rekindling love, and “how to share things that bug you.”
Costs for the conference are $40 per person, $75 per couple and $70 per couple for groups. To register, purchase tickets or receive more information, contact the Mississippi College Office of Christian Development at 601.925.3235 or go to the website www.moodyconferences.com.
