Who Are We?
The Marriage Ministry empowers both married and engaged couples through sound, biblical and practical teaching to have a deeper friendship with their spouse. We also seek to bring together married couples, allowing for the beginning of lifelong friendships that will offer close and personal mutual support throughout the range of challenges that people face daily.
"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
— Ecclesiastes 4:12
