Passionate Intimacy Workshop Banner



Many married couples struggle with creating the intimacy they desire - especially sexual intimacy. The truth is, God has provided us with help. This workshop is designed to assist spouses with the understanding and skills needed to enjoy God’s design for physical and emotional closeness. We will do this with sound Biblical teaching, current research and a bit of laughter in a safe, comfortable atmosphere.

~ Dr. Michael Sytsma



This is a truly unique workshop that combines Dr. Mike's:

- Pastoral heart
- Theological training
- 20+ years of clinical training and experience
- Study of the latest research in sexology and marital sex

 Participants in this workshop will learn:

  • A greater understanding of the beauty of God's gift of sexuality
  • A sexual vocabulary that helps husbands and wives discuss sexual issues
  • God's design for resolving sexual desire conflicts in marriage
  • Creative heart honoring ways to initiate intimacy with their spouse
  • What's "normal" in sexual response and activity
  • How to determine what's sexually acceptable for Christian couples
  • The critical role of emotional and spiritual intimacy for healthy physical intimacy
A formal program evaluation (research study) of this workshop proved that attendees experienced greater marital and sexual satisfaction in their marriage as a result of what they learned during the Passionate Intimacy Workshop.
