Marriage is God’s design and His great gift to us. No other human relationship can approach the potential for intimacy and oneness than that which can be found within the context of marriage. At Calvary we seek to support and strengthen marriage so couples can experience the joy that God intended as well as be equipped to withstand the challenges that arise over the years.

Marriage Mentoring Ministry
Engaged or young couples attending Calvary are matched with experienced older couples who have been trained to provide marriage mentoring. Mentoring requires a one-year commitment. Mentee couples take the Prepare/Enrich Relationship Inventory (Prepare-Enrich.com) and then meet 10 times over the course of a year with their mentor couple. In these meetings couples together go through their inventory report with a focus on their relationship strengths and growth areas, strengthening relationship skills and learning new skills, and learning from the marriage experience of the mentor couple as they share about their own marriage.
Mentor couples are screened, trained, and supervised. Areas covered include communication, conflict resolution, financial management, sex and affection, relationship roles, personal stress, leisure activities, children and parenting, friend and family relationships, and personality similarities and differences. Limited availability.
