Marriage Ministry Studies

Think of the marriage relationship as a living organism..., it has to be fed and exercised to be healthy and grow. In order to keep the marriage moving in the right direction, couples should take part in some form of study, retreat, workshop, conference, joint reading or devotion at least once per year.

We value Godly marriages and are offering a choice different marriage studies for couples.

  • Life Groups - studies can be a part of a Life Group's meeting, led by either the Life Group leader or by one of the couples from the Marriage Champions.
  • Single session Workshops for small groups
  • One-on-one coaching and counseling for couples
