Impacting Relationships for a Lifetime…

Some of the Current CRE Activities include:

  1. Providing informational and training events designed to instill Christ-centered principles of healthy relationships, with an emphasis on marriage relationships, in the JBU community and at the local, regional, national and international levels.
     
  2. Consulting with Christian colleges and universities to assess existing relationship curricula, ministries and programs, help develop new courses and/or programs and equip leaders to facilitate the implementation of those programs including the design, development and delivery of a weekend relationship enrichment program for university students who are seriously dating, engaged or married.
     
  3. Consulting with pastors and church leaders to assess the effectiveness of existing marriage curricula, ministries and programs, help develop new courses and/or programs and equip leaders to facilitate the implementation of those programs to help them increase their effectiveness in serving marriages and families in their church and in their community.
     
  4. Continuging development of our relationship-related assessments for colleges and universities (Student Relationship Assessment - SRA), and for churches (Church Relationpships Assessment - CRA) to help these organizations assess the degree to which what they are doing is making a measurable difference in the emotional, relational and spiritual lives of those they serve.
     
  5. Developing a comprehensive program for Northwest Arkansas and adjacent communities to provide pre-marital education, marriage enrichment and relationship training in ways that will impact churches, schools, community agencies and corporations, with the goal of strengthening marriages and enriching the relationship-culture of this community.
