Comments from Leaders...

“We hosted a Heart to Heart marriage conference with Ron and Ann. It was presented in a Biblical, engaging, humorous, equipping, and practical manner. What a great day! BGT is eagerly looking forward to another Heart to Heart marriage conference next year. I highly recommend this excellent ministry!”
-Pastor Michael Middlebrook, Bethel Gospel Tabernacle, Hamilton, ON
“The couples from our church were very pleased and impacted by the practical teaching of Ron and Ann Mainse. Their presentations included sound principles and instruction from the word of God, as well as valuable insights they shared from their own personal experiences as a married couple building a family and serving God together. I heard numerous comments from our people expressing how much they appreciated Ron and Ann’s “down to earth” ministry.”
- Rev. Rob Lukings, The Mission, Frogmore, Ontario
“We are thrilled to say that we have worked with this wonderful Ministry! Testifying of how God changed our marriage is such an important part of what we do, and Ron & Ann nailed it on the head!  We were so moved by what they had to offer. I encourage every pastor to have them speak at your church or event. It is powerful!”
- The Griffith Family, touring musical group.

Current Seminar Series


Discovering Marriage as God Intended

This seminar series includes four sessions and can be held on a Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm or spread out over a weekend retreat. The sessions include lots of helpful powerpoint slides, several illustrative videos, "Just the Two of You" times for couples, and note-taking handouts.


Session 1:   HIS & HERS: Our Different Needs & Natures  In this session we look at the 4 Deepest Needs we all share… needs that cannot be met by a spouse but only by God.  Then we consider the Top 3 Needs of a Husband and the Top 3 Needs of a Wife, and how each spouse can lovingly respond to those needs. 

Session 2:   QUICK TO LISTEN: Communicating Heart to Heart   It has been said that being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable. In this session we consider three levels of communication and provide practical tips on the art of listening...not just to your spouses words, but the emotions and meaning behind the words. 

Session 3:   SHALOM IN THE HOME: Dealing with Conflict   How can two different "notes" on two different "wave lengths" make beautiful music together? Harmony is possible, as opposed to discord, if we consider a new perspective on conflict and how to be a safe place for your spouse to bring up any issue at any time. 

Session 4:   KNOW YOUR ENEMY…and it’s NOT Your Spouse!  Every marriage is under attack.  In this session we look at the subtle and not-so-subtle ways a spiritual battle is raging in your home, identify some of the “wedges” the enemy drives between a husband and a wife to create distance, and give practical tools to stay strong in the face of these attacks.  Your marriage is worth fighting for!
