Our Story

We met 25 years ago, and after a whirlwind 6 months courtship, we got married, quit our jobs and followed God’s call into ministry by going to seminary. But the first few years were very difficult for us, and through God’s help, mentors and hard work we were able to grow a strong marriage.

If we can do it, there is hope for everyone! We are passionate about marriage because we believe that it is the foundation for a strong family and that it is a great picture of Christ’s love for the church. Come join us as we walk with you to growing a strong marriage!

It’s worth the effort!

We believe in strong and growing marriages and want to encourage you every step of the way. If you would like an older married couple to mentor you in your marriage, we will connect you with trained mentors to mentor you using the marriage mentoring program.  If you would desire to mentor a younger couple, we would train you as well. We have over 100 couples who are involved in our marriage mentoring program.

We also offer marriage preparation courses for those preparing for marriage as well as marriage courses throughout the year.

Testimony

 This is an e-mail we received from a couple who was interested in getting married at our church:

My fiancé and I would like to meet with you to discuss getting married. We are new Christians…my mom and sister were recently married in your church. Seeing the transformation in their lives has been very inspiring to us and has made us want to make the commitment to each other and God… We are in the process of making things right in our lives as new Christians.”

All 3 couples from this family have taken our premarriage course and a combination of mentoring and/or marriage classes at the church.  They all recently became Christians, and to see them doing life God’s way in getting married and learning what it means to be godly husbands and wives is truly inspirational.  It is wonderful to see a whole family become transformed by the love of God!
