Retaining Couples After They Wed: Marriage Mentor Ministry

By connecting your couples before they wed you can increase the likelihood they remain an active part of your ministry after the wedding bells have stopped ringing. By utilizing trained marriage mentors from within your own congregation, you can foster lasting cross-generational relationships while at the same time lightening the load of the Pastor. In this workshop, learn how it works, the results we have seen, and how you can get started.
