Growing Toward Oneness Marriage and Family Ministries exists to prepare and equip couples to build strong marriages God’s way and to train other couples in every region of the country and on the mission field to do marriage ministry in their own churches and communities. (Legal name is GTO Conferences, Inc.)
Programs: GTO has three trainer couples who lead these conferences, modeling husband and wife teams for the couples in attendance. The three day intensives both train and allow couples to practice teaching together during the conference. It is “hands-on” training which equips them to minister as couple teams in their churches and communities. Attending couples gain the tools and skills necessary to spearhead marriage ministry in their own churches. They are taught to use poignant life stories, humorous cartoons and video clips and down-right hilarious anecdotes to make their teaching effective.
GTO plans to train 5,000 couples in the next 10 years and will need a total of 20 regional trainer couples to do so.
