Central Baptist Pastor Paul Mixon said he hopes the event will inspire couples to strengthen their marriages.

"Divorce has become such an easy out for married folks in our society that hosting an event like this should speak directly to the hearts of the attendees to help them see God’s plan for marriage as a lifelong covenant," Mixon said.   

"(Our church) will be starting a marriage mentor program designed to link couples together using love, accountability and conflict resolution methods," he said.
