Marriage Matters Ministry

Who are we?
The Marriage Mentoring Ministry is a team of couples that are passionate about marriage and God’s design for marriage.

It is our desire to train and disciple imperfect couples, like ourselves, to join us in building strong and healthy marriages and families.

What do we do?
Marriage mentors are enthusiastic about building marriages on God’s foundation and relating to each other according to his design. Marriage mentors listen, encourage, and disciple couples to build a Christ-centered marriage. By sharing their own experiences -peaks and valleys-, mentors teach others that God uses imperfect people and marriages to minister to individuals and couples.The goal of the Mentoring Ministry is to build, strengthen and restore marriages through experiencing the reality that daily challenges and long-term struggles can be made perfect in Christ and for Christ (Col. 1:28).

Mentors are not marriage counselors but are trained and equipped with the Word of God and other mentoring programs to minister to other couples.
