Facets of the Marriage Ministry

For Pre-Marital Couples

For premarital couples we offer a Marriage Preparation class where couples take the Prepare/Enrich assessment and attend a group class.The Prepare/Enrich assessment is a widely known and used tool with a solid research foundation and applicability. It has over 1200 published articles supporting its reliability and validity. The course also includes materials from the Gottman Institute which produces leading research in the field of marriage therapy.

 

At the conclusion of the class we highly encourage couples to be matched with a marriage mentor couple that will walk with them in an intentional relationship throughout the first year of their marriage.

The Marriage Course

Opportunities for marriage enrichment are provided throughout the year in the form of The Marriage Course which is offered through the Alpha International organization. The marriage course is a 7 part video series that provides time for learning and discussions between spouses on the topics of the art of communication, resolving conflict, the power of forgiveness, the impact of family, good sex, and love in action.

Marriage Mentors

Marriage mentors are couples who have several years of marriage experience and have walked through a process of intentional reflection, assessment and discussion regarding their own marriage and have a heart to support others in their marriage relationship. The goal is for a mentor couple to intentionally invest in and develop a relationship with a mentee couple over the course of at least one year.

 

Marriage mentors are offered “mentor meet-ups” which are group gatherings in an effort to provide support, community and accountability among mentor couples.
