  Obtain budget guidance and support via email or other written means. Once a budget is approved you will need to secure a venue to hold the event.

•  Recruit a team to help with prayer, planning, promotion, and conduct, and follow-up of the event.

•  Proposed Schedules and manuals are available on-line. In addition the talks can be made available for your adaptation.

Resources Needed: A venue (either hotel, community center, or equivalent) needs to be reserved early on. You will need to print the manuals and schedules. It is recommended to have one copy of Defending the Military Marriage for each couple to encourage the formation of small groups after the event.
