Life Community Church continues Families First series Sunday

Ada —  

Life Community Church (LCC) will continue its six-week Families First  series Sunday, Feb. 10, at 10 a.m. Focus will be on Christian marriage and relationships, presented by Life Community Church Senior Pastor Mickey Keith and Dr. Jerry Duncan, an ordained minister and licensed psychologist who practices in Ada and Moore.

In this, the fourth week in the ongoing series — which is open to the public — Keith will discuss “His Needs, Her Needs,” a Christian perspective on marriage and relationships, based on insights from Dr. Willard F. Harley and his ground-breaking approach to marriage counseling, highlighted in the book His Needs, Her Needs.

“In His Needs, Her Needs, Dr. Harley shows that men and women sometimes have difficulty understanding each other’s emotional needs and, in fact, often try to fulfill emotional needs specific to their own gender, not that of their partner.  No wonder there is so often a ‘disconnect’ or even a complete misunderstanding of needs,” Keith said.

Utilizing his 30 years in pastoral ministry and couples counseling,  Keith will focus on how a Biblically based approach to marriage, including a clear understanding of emotional needs, will result in stronger, more fulfilling marriages and families. 

Joining Keith at the pulpit, Duncan will share insights on marriage and couples counseling, based on more than 37 years of practice, teaching and ministry.  In his remarks, Duncan will highlight “The Five Love Languages,” defined by Dr. Gary Chapman as words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service and physical touch.

Duncan is a fellow in the Academy of Counseling Psychologists, an approved supervisor in the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and a certified educator for the National Council on Family Relations. He has taught psychology courses at Oklahoma State University, the University of Oklahoma Medical School and East Central University.
