Every time you come to this page I want you to hear me say “thank you” for the way you serve the engaged couples in our church. The value of a mature, mentor couple to invest in the life of an engaged and newly couple cannot be overestimated.

  • The video we created to orient engaged couples to each meeting
  • The most up-to-date tools / evaluations for each meeting
  • A sample exercise for the “Sketching Your Marriage Story” assignment
