Helping communities build stronger, healthier relationships.

The Boone Center for the Family helps communities within churches, academic institutions and Christian organizations by providing programs and training to empower and enable the communities' leaders. We are lucky enough to have our programs underwritten by generous donations and grants, allowing us to offer them at a cost making them accessible to the widest possible audience.

Relationship IQ

Relationship IQ is a framework for those providing direction and leadership for young adults — whether within a ministry or academic institution. The program helps young adults navigate the complex personal relationships around them.


RelateStrong discussion


RelateStrong is for adults whose life-stage moves them beyond Relationship IQ, but who aren't looking for the couples focus of MarriageStrong.


Minister with friends and family

Minister's Marriage Enrichment

Minister's Marriage Enrichment is a two-day getaway offering ministry couples an opportunity to prioritize their relationship.


MarriageStrong workshop


MarriageStrong supports couples engaged in or prepping for a life of leadership and service.


Relationship IQ, MarriageStrong, RelateStrong, and Minister's Marriage Enrichment utilize a combination of social science research and theology to encourage healthy relationships through:

Peer-to-peer discussion


The strength and insight gained by sharing, discussion and genuine connection.

Personal Development


A deeper awareness from understanding yourself, other people and their perception of you.



Spiritual and emotional renewal sparked by the words of scripture and community.
