Build Your Marriage Weekend 2016

What is the Build Your Marriage Weekend?

On February 27th, D3 Church is hosting a video recording of a conference being held in Jacksonville, Florida on February 19th and 20th by Matt and Lauren Chandler on their new book on dating and marriage: The Mingling of Souls. Matt is the lead pastor of The Village Church in Dallas, TX, and the president of the Acts 29 Network, of which D3 Church is a member. The Mingling of Souls is a great new book on dating and marriage from God's perspective, and it contains tons of vital and helpful ideas that can help all of us build our marriage to be a beautiful symbiotic relationship between husband and wife that brings joy and delight to our days. 

When and Where is the conference?

The Conference will be held at D3 Church (Directions), and it will be held in two main sessions: one in the morning and one in the afternoon/evening on Saturday, February 27th.

Because the live event is happening in the Eastern Time zone, the times are somewhat inconvenient for us, so we are going to record the live event and show it the following Saturday, to make it easier for more people to attend and benefit from it. The morning and evening schedule is below:


Morning Session - 9AM-12:15PM

Attraction, Character, Wedding Bells, and Sex

(Childcare Provided)

Evening Session - 3PM-6:15PM

Fighting Fair, Romance, and LEgacy

(No Childcare)

Date Night - 6:15PM-8:15Pm

While the official conference ends at 6:15, we are highly encouraging couples to take some questions and topics we will give you and go on a date night together after the conference to have some conversations that will build your marriage far more than simple teaching can.

Participation and end time are completely up to each couple, but we have set a suggested time of 6:15-8:15. At the conference, we will provide a Date Night plan with suggested places to eat, and topics to discuss/questions to ask to spur honest communication and help build marital oneness.

(No Childcare)


Can I read the book beforehand? 

Absolutely! If you'd like to get a jump start on the information we'll be talking about at the conference, you can check out these resources we at D3 recommend to help shine light on God's best for your marriage:

What did you Expect? by Paul David Tripp

The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller

Also, Matt and Lauren have posted some practical videos of them discussing specific questions and issues couples have regarding marriage, and you can view all of those (as well as order the book and/or study guide) here:

What if I missed the Conference?

If you weren't able to attend the marriage conference, the videos will be left online for the month of March, so make sure to find time to watch them before they take them down. Because of copyright considerations, we can only allow those inside our church or friends of those in the church to stream the videos. We have put the link and watching instructions on The City, our church's online networking tool. Use the link below in the footer to login and find the latest post on the main church page.
