"How does one uphold God’s standard and ideal for marriage? The answer is The Cross - a place where all of us who have blown it can experience grace and forgiveness and a second chance.”
- Greg St. Cyr
We believe that marriage is a God-designed commitment that reflects our own relationship with God as Father, Son and Spirit. Marriage is our “training ground” for relationship with God, filled with joys and sorrows, successes and failures, celebrations and grief, sickness and health. Marriage is an intimate spiritual and physical journey, both through and for life.
Bay Area’s Marriage Ministry exists to build maturing, passionate, and lasting marriages as God’s most visible image of becoming one in Christ. Our marriage ministry is aimed at both married couples as well as premarital or seriously dating couples.
Married couples can engage in enrichment and educational opportunities year-round, including learning communities, marriage workshops, date nights, and missional communities. For more information, contact Eric Feldmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our newest workshop is called REFOCCUS. This eight-week course is ideal for married couples that want to spend time and energy on their relationship, but would love some direction and skill-building assistance from trained facilitators. REFOCCUS brings about awareness for each couple regarding major aspects of marriage. For more information, contact Laura Dexter-Mooty at email@example.com.

Our Premarital Ministry focuses on helping couples prepare for a marriage to last a lifetime with Christ at the center. Premarital couples are assigned a premarital mentor couple to meet for at least 6 private sessions. Newly married couples (up through their first year) can also enroll to learn important foundations to strengthen their commitment. All couples explore the fundamentals of God’s design for marriage. Cost is $75. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
