Two Die For
Your marriage is valuable – Let’s keep it growing
Due to the quickly changing public health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus, and operating out of an abundance of caution and concern for you, we have elected to reschedule this weekend’s Marriage Symposium. We regret this move, but believe it is in your best interests as we do not want to put any attendee, or their family members, at greater risk. The good news is that we already have the new date confirmed. Please mark your calendar for August 21-22. Same time, same place … just in August now!
If you have any questions concerning the new date, or your ability to attend on that date, please contact [email protected].
We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by this decision to reschedule the Symposium. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Gain insights on God’s design for marriage, learn communication patterns, effective strategies for a healthy relationship, and how to manage crises together.
Two-part Symposium – Continuing Education Hours Available*
Sessions 1-2: Friday, August 21, 6:30pm – 9:30pm
Sessions 3-6: Saturday, August 22, 9:00am – 3:30pm
Great marriages are never built on a 50-50 proposition. When it comes to active participation or commitment, it’s only when each spouse is giving 100% that a win-win marriage is attained. In the beginning, God said that it was not good for man to be alone, and He created the marital union. Have you ever heard a person observe a couple and say, “Man, they have a marriage to die for,” and then look wistfully off into the distance?
How to have a God-honoring Marriage
Today, half of all Americans aged 18 or older are married, but divorce rates for those older than 50 continue to rise. Among those 65 and older, the rate has tripled since 1990. Remarriage is also on the rise, with nearly a fourth of all couples coming from a previous relationship. Likewise, we are seeing a significant increase in cultural, ethnic, and religious differences between spouses (Pew Research Center). The challenge for people of faith is how to have a God-honoring marriage and sustain a vibrant and successful relationship with one’s spouse.
Receive Critically Needed Tools
This event is ideal for mental health practitioners, caregivers, pastors, ministry leaders, and those who are looking for a great opportunity to strengthen their own marriages. You will receive critically needed tools that offer biblical hope and practical help for the issues so many couples face today.

Worship with Will & Crystal Yates
Will & Crystal Yates have been married for 21 years and have two boys. In 2010, after much prayer they followed the Lord’s calling to leave behind their very deep roots in Florida and pursue ministry and music together in the DFW area. They moved to McKinney, TX where they joined the newly formed People and Songs Artist Community and have been involved ever since. They continue to write, record, and release new music for the church, as well as, cultivate up-and-coming writers and worship leaders. Because their lives have been saved and radically changed by Jesus, they have a passion to share the gospel and their testimonies through storytelling, songwriting, and worship leading.
Will and Crystal are the resident worship pastors at Christ Fellowship Church in McKinney.
