Thanks for the workshop! We really enjoyed it. This was our first workshop. But check this out; it was a challenge getting my husband to come. I have been talking about the marriage retreats for years and he never wanted to go b/c he always would say we don’t have any problem with our marriage. He said the same thing on Sunday and I said we don’t have to have issues – the workshop is for enhancements. He was really not on board initially. But since we have been home he will say ‘ okay what did YOU learned from the workshop’! I really laugh to myself because I tried to tell him he would enjoy and learn something from the workshop and apparently he did!
The content was very applicable and the curriculum was well laid out with activities and time to share among the group. The Program was very well organized and I loved the positive attitudes of all the staff. The facilitator had excellent presentation skills and she did a great job! Also the atmosphere was very comfortable and relaxed. We would definitely attend another workshop in the future!

Tri Team Unlimited provides real life and on time solutions. I have attended many classes throughout the years and inevitably found the content to be valuable, classes to be engaging, fun and achieved the goal presented. Building healthy relationships is the center of the work they do. This group has the innate ability to meet you where you are and help you build a path to where you want to be in your relationship. They don’t approach the problem as if it is magic, they are clear that work is required, but can guarantee that you will have a magical outcome when you do the work. Vernita is an excellent facilitator and passionate about her craft! I highly recommend Tri Team Unlimited for marriage ministries, small groups, classes and for speaking engagements. With God all things are possible and when he is present in any relationship between two, it automatically becomes “Tri” and a “Tri Team” is unbeatable.

My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed the workshops from Tri Team Unlimited. They have definitely helped us to grow and enrich our marriage.

Show Time

What an awesome experience. I felt like I’ve known the facilitator Dr Dauv all of his life. He was knowledgeable, personable, honest, forthright and professional.

I had the pleasure of working with Vernita and Tri Team on some branding projects and it was a very enlightening and professional experience. I may not have been a part of the training but I still received so much from it. Everyone involved with Tri Team are kind, knowledgeable, and true professionals.

J Robertson

I have had the pleasure of attending Tri Team Unlimited Workshops & Events numerous times. The owner Vernita Griffith and her staff/volunteers are always so pleasant and such a pleasure to be around. The workshops are informative, motivational and worth it. If you are looking for enhancements in your relationships whether they are personal or impersonal Tri Team Unlimited is the best. Their expertise on the different topics is like no other. I will always say yes when these workshops come up!

As a society, we are told to go to college, earn some sort of diploma or certificate to prepare for the workforce and stay up to date on current trends, etc. We take classes and tests to learn how to drive, or pursue specific professions. Why not put that same effort in our relationships with each other? Many of us forget to invest in the most important resources in our lives, people. Whether it’s a parent, sibling, spouse, child, etc; Tri Team has to be one of the most effective resources out there to help us invest in each other, to put effort in building, strengthening and improving the bonds that are so often broken, fragile, or could simply use a tune up. The facilitators are knowledgeable and experienced. Workshops are fun! This is hands down the best resource everyone should add to their repertoire of self-improvement… and if you don’t have one… start building one with this. You won’t regret it!

Dwayne Patterson’s presentation on Conflict Resolution was phenomenal. My husband and I have very distinctly different paradigms and resolving conflicts can be chaotic. Mr. Patterson’s tools and guidelines are now a part of our arsenal for creating a smooth and peaceful line of communication. Just getting a snippet through a “dress rehearsal” let me know I needed to return to a regular seminar. He was a grand teacher who knew so much about the subject matter and was a passionate presenter.

Workshop FAQ’s

Do you have to be married to attend the workshops?
No. All of our workshops are for intimate couples in various relationships and stages. We welcome all romantic type couples and parent/child, siblings, and friends.
Do I have to attend with my partner/mate/spouse?
Yes. All of our workshops are for Couples Only. The activities and information are for couples to experience at the same time. This way both partners receive the same information and are able to ask questions when they arise.
Why do you offer workshops for self-esteem and emotional intelligence as a couples only workshop?
There are two main reason that we chose to offer these as a couples only workshop. The first is that anyone who has challenges in these areas are more successful when they have a support system in place. It’s best that the support is in attendance to hear and understand how they can best be supportive and learn the clues as to when their support is needed. The second is that when one person in an intimate couple has challenges, it affects the relationship. When these challenges are addresses as a couple, it will increase the level of intimacy and bring the couple closer together and they deepen their level of communication and understanding. There are other benefits of addressing these challenges as a couple, but these are our top two.
I am in a same sex relationship; can we attend the workshops?

Yes. Tri Team Unlimited does not discriminate against anyone for any reason. We focus on bridging the gaps in relationships and increasing intimacy.

We have a good relationship, are these workshops only for couples in trouble?
No. These workshops are for any couple that wants to make a positive change to their relationship. We believe that a “tune-up” is essential to having the healthiest relationship and learning tools that can be useful in the future is a great investment.
We’ve tried counseling and it didn’t work. How is this different?
The workshops that we offer are NOT counseling. We teach tools to address various challenges and help couples to determine which tool to use for which challenge. This is done in a small supportive group environment that is both fun and relaxing.

Tri Team Unlimited’s workshops are small group couples’ workshops that address a number of hard to find topics in a comfortable and welcoming “home-like” setting that is fun and engaging. You laugh and learn at the same time with facilitators who are very astute and passionate about their topic. In additional to all of the useful tools that you receive, there are a number of workshop “perks” that are specific to Tri Team Unlimited participants. We care about each and every couple that we serve and take care that we grow your partner relationship and your relationship with Tri Team Unlimited. We believe that when you change your relationship, you change your life.
