Would You Like to See the Couples in Your Church Engaged in Sparkling Relationships?
Would They Like To Break the “Crazy Cycle” Where They “Can’t Live with Them, but They Also Can’t Live without Them”?
You Can Begin to Have the Answer When You Host a Relationship-Maximizer Event Right in Your Church!
You may host a full seminar (3 evenings, or 1 evening and 1 full day, or an evening and a morning), and your people will be blessed as they discover the six keys to marital bliss.
Another option is to host a one-day event, and receive a mini-version of the seminar.
A third popular option is to host a single evening event.
Listen to what Dr. James Flanagan from Luther Rice Seminary and University has to say about Randy’s writing and speaking ministry:
Maximize Your Marriage By

- Turn your negative differences into positive connections when you make the most important commitment you will make in any relationship.
- Improve your communication skills as you develop the most important attitude that any marriage needs.
- Delight yourselves with physical and spiritual intimacy as you engage in the most important connections you can make in your marriage.

Don’t Just Be In the Marriage Game.
Go for the Championship!
Break the “Crazy Cycle” and Enjoy Each Other
Couples will discover and learn new ways to meet each other’s needs. You may have an evening event or a day-and-a-half seminar.
If you have a one-day (or one-night) event, I suggest you go with the “Don’t Just Be In the Marriage Game. Go for the Championship” talk. Some churches like to combine this with a meal preceding the mini-seminar.
The day-and-a-half seminar is often on a Friday evening, followed by sessions on Saturday. This allows time for all Six Keys to Marital Bliss to be presented. This type of seminar can be organized in sessions that total from six to nine sessions of 30 to 50 minutes each.
Have a Relationship Seminar and Raise Funds for Your Ministry at the Same Time
This Arrangement Is Especially Beneficial to Smaller Churches
In special cases, Randy can work out such an arrangement. After writing the book, The LOVING Way to Successful Marriage: Six Keys to Marital Bliss, he branched out into speaking to colleges, schools and businesses as well as churches. While the standard fees for public speaking for authors is quite a bit higher than it is for other situations, he was concerned about reaching his ideal audiences, which, of course is composed of churches.
Even if you look at many public speaking sites that deal with fund-raising, you will see that they list speakers at their standard fees. The excess brought in for the event above those standard fees then goes to the organization for which the funds are raised.
Randy’s dilemma was that he needed to be compensated for speaking, as this is his primary means of making a living, but he was concerned that many smaller to medium-sized churches would not be able to bring him in because of his standard fee. Then a well-known speaker suggested an alternative that would accomplish both goals: giving the speaker adequate compensation and raising funds for the local ministry or the ministry that the church designates.
The fee arrangement for fund-raising for churches is as follows: (1) The church “sells” tickets (or recommends suggested donations) for the event. The church can bring the speaker in at his standard fee, and the excess goes to the organization for which the funds are raised. This works well for larger churches that can bring in large crowds. (2) The church brings in the speaker under the following arrangement: After expenses are paid, half of the proceeds go to the speaker, and half go to ministry or organization for which the funds are raised. Also, continuing educational materials are provided at the back of the room, and ten percent of those proceeds go to the church and the rest goes to the speaker. This is a “win-win” situation, and it is a great option for smaller churches.
If the youth group needs funds for a mission trip, they benefit from the fund-raiser. An event such as “Building Relationships that Last” or “Don’t Just Be In the Marriage Game. Go for the Championship!” benefits the community because even those who are not church members would often want to attend. Church members will benefit because they contribute to the fundraiser, yet they also receive value from principles presented in the event itself.
Motivational Speech for Teenagers
Three Concerns About Dating, and What to Do About Them
The Relationship Seminar for Teens and College Students
Randy enjoys saying that even at his “advanced” age (He says he is not getting older. He is getting better!), he still relates well to young people. Within the last couple of years, he was the preacher for a local church camp designed for those 9-11 years of age. He often speaks in chapel for local Christian schools, and he works with young men who have been called into the ministry.
His message on “Pilsung!” came about because he had certain “rituals” that he had when he greeted the young people individually at his church on Sunday mornings. For instance, he would always greet one young man by calling him whatever was printed on his shirt. In another instance, he would greet a young lady by asking her if she wanted “long” or “short.” This started when she was quite a bit younger, and she often, as a joke, just kept shaking his hand for some length of time. As she got older, she did not do that as often, but the question jokingly remained. Another young man was quite involved in Tae Kwon Do. They would then greet each other with a traditional handshake and a bow and say, “Pilsung!” which means, “certain victory.” When asked to speak at the young man’s graduation, the “Pilsung!” motivational message developed.
His message on “Three Concerns About Dating, and What to Do About Them” engages teenagers and college students.
In his expanded speaking ministry, branching out to non-church environments, Randy has come into contact with well-known speakers.
You may have seen some of the episodes of ABC’s “Secret Millionaire.” James Malinchak is featured in one of those episodes.
James has the following to say about Randy’s book and speaking mission:
“The Information on Personality and how men and women think in The LOVING Way to a Successful Marriage: Six Keys to Marital Bliss is worth the investment in this book many times over.”
