Marriage Ministry

The Evangelism and Church Health Team serves churches by strengthening relationships through marriage enrichment experiences in local churches and associations to help churches develop ongoing marriage enrichment.  We equip pastors and staff with premarital and marriage counseling tools through Prepare-Enrich Training and encourage ministry couples through Galatians 6:6 Marriage Enrichment Retreats.  Our team also regularly consults with pastors, staff, and lay leaders through phone calls, emails, and face-to-face meetings to address church health and growth issues related to marriage enrichment.
