Introduction to the Workshop

The Divorce Recovery Workshop is one of the focal programs of the Recovery and Transformational Ministries at First Baptist Church. Our program was introduced by Ralph Starling, Associate Pastor for Christian Invitation at Richmond's First Baptist Church, and has grown under his leadership. Ralph was an forerunner in divorce recovery workshops in the 1980’s during his ministry in California. He brought his experience and expertise for this program to First Baptist in 1990. In addition to professional speakers and staff, we are proud to have over 60 trained and committed volunteers who will be working closely with the participants. All volunteers are divorced themselves, have been participants in The Workshop, and have grown and recovered significantly from their own divorce experience. Their desire is to give back to others the healing and hope they received from the workshop program.

The Fall Workshop provides opportunities for:

  • Education through speakers, Rebuilding textbook, workshop workbook and Workshop Weekly newsletter
  • Healing and Hope through the small group experience of sharing , listening, caring, reflecting, and processing.
  • Community though developing new and meaningful friendships, participating in safe social opportunities, and connecting with others who are dealing with the same experiences.
  • Spiritual Nurture through additional optional opportunities such as the Sunday morning Bible Study, Companions in Christ small groups, Service of Prayer for Healing and many others.

The Fall Workshop includes:

  • Programs for children grades 2-6, Teens grades 7-12, as well as the adult program, and childcare for younger children.
  • The Boundaries video series on Friday nights during the workshop
  • A Sunday Morning support group and Bible study.
