PAIRS CERTIFICATION TRAINING AT US COAST GUARD AIR STATION MIAMI, April 23-26, 2011
PAIRS Training at Charlie Norwood VA

 

Welcome to a Life Changing Experience

Thank you for your interest to learn practical ways to enhance and upgrade your relationships! That is what this PAIRS Essentials retreat is all about!

As a Navy Chaplain serving in the Coast Guard, I know that the Coast Guard is continually looking for ways to benefit our personnel and their families as they diligently and sacrificially serve this great nation. Listen to what our Seventh Coast Guard District Commander, Admiral William Baumgartner has to say, "Strong, healthy families are the building blocks of our society and are an essential part of our Coast Guard team. But the relationships necessary to keep our families strong and healthy can't be taken for granted. In our professional lives, we expect to receive training and conduct preventative maintenance to make sure that we can excel performing our missions. Why shouldn't we apply the same concept to the most important relationships in our lives?"

PAIRS Essentials is designed to give you the tools to make your relationships healthier and more vibrant. Having experienced this course first hand, I am convinced that it will improve your relationships if you apply the tools you are equipped with. Invest in your relationships today by registering for this life changing retreat!
