Marriages

Ephesians 5:21-33 instructs us on the importance of living out a Christian marriage, a reflection of God's love for us. Does your marriage reflect the love of God to your spouse? What about to your neighbor?  As followers of Christ we are called to look different than the rest of the world. Unfortunately, todays culture whether in church or other wise has a divorce rate of over 50% across the board. If we are not learning and growing together as a couple in our understanding of God's design for marriage we will surely be among those statistics.


Marital Mentoring

REGISTRATION COMING SOON

When we aren't sure what to do next, partnering with another couple who have experienced similar life /marriage struggles to walk with you during a difficult time is just the thing we need. We offer trained, experienced married couples who just live life to the best of their ability just like you, focused on Jesus and His help in their marriage. Our marriage mentor couples will talk with  you, listen to you, pray with you, encourage you, and most of all direct you to the word of God for answers to life's complicated questions. 


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

How do i know that marriage mentoring is for me? 

 A willingness to share about the difficulties in marriage with another couple who have an imperfect marriage as well!  A willingness to look at things through the lens of God's word. And a willingness by you and your spouse to meet with this other couple who will encourage you in your marriage and/or through the difficult circumstances of married life.

WHAT does the process look like? 

A mentor couple will be assigned to you based on your circumstances or lifestyle compatibility. We do our best to find a couple who you can relate to your struggles.  No marriage is perfect!  It may not be a perfect match but we do our best and let God do the rest. We have a fantastic tool we use to help the mentor couple facilitate conversations between the married couple. You’ll be asked to take an online inventory tool called FOCCUS that asks several questions about your life views. The mentor couple will help you and your spouse have confidential, safe, and healthy conversations. This process is meant to be a tool to help facilitate and focus on healthy conversations and focus on God's plan for your marriage.

 If you feel you can not even sit together and talk we have other recourses to help you, please let us know.
