In 2008, through a dream encounter with the Lord, Barry & Lori Byrne received a significant strategy on how to heal, strengthen and transform marriages – this was the birthing of Love After Marriage (LAM). After facilitating many LAM workshops and seeing the types of issues that many marriages struggled with, the Byrnes felt like the Lord was saying, “Get to the singles before they are married!” In 2010, the son of Barry & Lori Byrne – Brendon Byrne – created and led the original singles ministry home group that piloted the Single Life Workshop (SLW) ministry, which was founded by Barry, Lori & Brendon Byrne.
The goal for Single Life Workshop is to encourage growth in learning how to do relationships well. We don’t believe in just teaching and passing on information. We put men and women in small groups so they have a hands-on opportunity to use the tools we’ve given them in order to relate to one another, share and be themselves. With their appointed “family”, they will talk, laugh, play and work through the significant things that would otherwise hinder them in having healthy, transparent, intimate relationships. This workshop is not about finding a mate but about becoming healthy, confident and ready for an amazing marriage!
As you participate in this workshop, you will experience:
We’d love to partner with you in moving towards living a lifestyle of openness and vulnerability in your relationships to experience relationship the way God intended!
Experience Single Life Workshop through a 3.5-day intensive workshop. These workshops are designed as an accelerated format to empower you with understanding and skills needed to move forward into the healthy and fulfilling relationships intended by God. It has been transformational for many who have participated!
Learn how to do relationships well in this 12-week Single Life Workshop with other men and women in small groups so that you’ll have a hands-on opportunity to use the tools that are given to learn to relate with one another, share and encounter Holy Spirit’s breakthrough in your life.
This is essential within the small groups. Participants will come into the workshop with different comfort levels in regards to their willingness to share. Keep encouraging them to take risks to share openly about their lives and feelings, inviting the others (the body of Christ) and Holy Spirit to come into those places and be the Wonderful Counselor.
We want SLW to be a place where there is freedom to question and learn. We encourage participants to recognize what they perceive through their spirit and to validate that perception through the Word of God and through the honest feedback of the SLW community. Through this process, people learn to discern through their understanding as well as through their spirits.
These go hand-in-hand with vulnerability and transparency. We encourage the participants to go to new levels of honesty with one another. Trust, security and intimacy are the fruit of honesty and truthfulness when combined with mutual respect. It is worth the risk!
We begin each workshop by inviting the supernatural transforming power and presence of Holy Spirit. We have confidence that God will come and strengthen each person in their ability to form Godly and loving relationships. He is ready to empower everyone to do the impossible. He is for every person. We invite Holy Spirit to stir up faith in each participant to believe and expect God’s loving intervention!
SLW requires a significant time commitment. In order to get the most out of SLW, people must make attending SLW and doing the homework a priority. In addition, they must commit to investing themselves emotionally and spiritually. This is one of the most important investments they can make on behalf of their lives and their relationships!
Holy Spirit is really the One leading this workshop. We strive to continually listen to His direction throughout the sessions. For example, this can mean a willingness to go after prayer in areas He is bringing to the forefront or spending more time than allotted in an area because He’s moving.
All of our understanding and teaching of relationships, sex and marriage is founded on truths and principles from the Bible.
Every person needs to be reminded to stick to their commitment to getting breakthrough. They must not easily give up but be willing to make growth a priority. We have had participants that did not get their breakthrough until one of the last sessions of the workshop. We encourage them to continue to press in for their breakthrough until they receive it!
Note: We require those who want to be registered to lead a Single Life Workshop in their local area to attend either the full 12-week workshop or and intensive workshop. There are other requirements for becoming registered. Please CONTACT US for more information.
