“Love, Dates and Heartbreaks” series videos with Andy Stanley

Great relationships don’t happen by accident! Whether you’re single, married, divorced, or remarried, you’ll find this series thought-provoking and useful. Andy Stanley is the senior pastor of North Point Community Church in Atlanta, Georgia. We’ve used some of his videos for years at Divorce and Relationship Recovery, and people from every background have appreciated Andy’s wisdom, energy and humor. We recommend you view and digest these videos in our weekly meetings, but provide them here for people that have missed a session or would like to see it again.

If you’re benefiting from one of our weekly groups, we hope you’ll donate – or set up a recurring financial gift – to support the work of the non-profit Divorce and Relationship Recovery Network that launches and manages groups like yours. You can do that here.
