Creating a Marriage Preparation Experience that Lasts Forever

We need a whole new way of doing pre-marital counseling for this

generation. This new generation desires meaningful relationships. They

want something that is experiential and authentic to provide practical tools

to help a marriage work. At Legacy Family Ministries, we believe that

there are five essentials that describe The Countdown Experience:

biblical, experiential, authentic, relational and practical. These core values

combined with an interactive mix of personal stories, visual aids, props,

and humor make The Countdown Experience a unique way of preparing

couples for marriage.

What is the Legacy Countdown Leader Network?

It is a network of Christian leaders in marriage & family ministry – pastors,

ministers and lay couples who utilize The Countdown Experience to

provide pre-marital education and preparation for couples.

What are the benefits of becoming a Countdown Leader?

  • Organized opportunity for laity to serve Christ as they lead others

  • How do I become a Countdown Leader?

    1. Attend a Countdown training event

    2. Agree to Legacy Family Ministries Statements of Belief

    Agree to the Statement of Faith, Statement of Marriage, and Essentials

    of Countdown.

    3. Become a Marriage Educator

    Marriage Educators use their lives to teach and facilitate principles,

    skills, and attitudes through an interactive process rather than

    professional mental health counseling.

    4. Use Countdown Materials

    The Countdown Workbook, Leader’s Guide, Countdown to Sexual

    Intimacy CD, and curriculum plan have been specifically designed to

    incorporate the five elements of The Countdown Experience.

    5. Build a Prayer Support Team

    Find a team of supporters who will provide prayer and encouragement

    for your ministry.

    6. Use Countdown name and logo

    Agree to use specific branding as a way to identify and promote this

    Christian educational experience.

    7. Honor Copyright Laws

    Agree not to alter the Countdown published material without permission

    from Legacy Family.

    8. Utilize Marriage Investors

    We believe a valuable component of The Countdown Experience is for

    couples to identify 10 marriage investors to pray, support, and

    encourage them during this course and first year of marriage (highly

    recommended, but optional).

    9. Use Pre-Marital Inventory

    Use FOCCUS, Prepare, or similar marriage preparation inventory

    (recommended, but optional).
