Yes. Each DivorceCare kit comes with access to online materials so you can offer a group either online or in person. Some churches offer a hybrid group—one that meets online and at a physical location.
No. DivorceCare is designed to be a lay-led ministry. Because the teaching is presented on weekly videos featuring Christian experts on divorce topics, your DivorceCare group can be led by a team of mature lay volunteers.
Typically you’ll find the most committed leaders are those who have personal experience with separation or divorce—whether their own or that of a family member or friend. These people are passionate about helping others recover from divorce. If you find one lay leader, our DivorceCare coaches will help your leader build a team of volunteers.
Yes. Your lay leaders will have access to online training videos, a user-friendly leader’s guide, an online leader resource hub, and a (free) DivorceCare coach to answer questions along the way.
Often, people are separated for long periods of time before a divorce is finalized. During that time, they are hurting deeply and need support, information, and encouragement. Because of the emphasis on reconciliation throughout DivorceCare, some separated people will see the wisdom of reconciliation and attempt to restore their marriage.
Absolutely! Your DivorceCare kit comes with a 30-day guarantee. You can review the materials, share them with other leaders, and decide if this ministry is a good fit for your church. If you decide that it’s not, simply return your kit within 30 days for a full refund (minus shipping).

Participants now have the ability to order their own books to be shipped directly to them. Churches won’t have to front the cost of workbooks!
