All other Programs, including the Adults Program still have limited tickets left.
This session will be a condensed version of the highly-regarded ‘What Did You Expect?’ seminar that Paul has presented around the world (including Sydney) over many years.
It is a seminar that is gospel-centred, theatre-style (i.e. no ‘turn to your spouse and discuss’), and has transformed and enriched many marriages.
All KEC delegates are welcome to attend this bonus session as part of their registration price. Tickets to the Marriage Seminar alone are not available.
