The main focus of this marriage ministry is to provide a faith based support system for couples that are married, engaged and seriously dating. One of our main goals is to minimize marriage alternatives such as divorce, cohabitation, and separation through biblically based teaching, mentoring, couple’s counseling and coaching.
Below are resources for couples who are married or are engaged to be married.
