Marriage Mentors Ministry
Thinking about getting married? Engaged? Already married but want to move from “good” to “great”? Struggling?
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
ERBC’s Marriage Mentoring Ministry is designed to help couples:
• PREPARE for a new marriage
• STRENGTHEN a good marriage, and
• HEAL troubled marriages
HOW IT WORKS: A trained ERBC couple (not professional counselors) comes alongside you and your spouse to help you build skills to strengthen your marriage. You’ll look at areas like communication, conflict resolution, finances, stress, spiritual beliefs, and more.
GET STARTED: Could you or a friend benefit from Marriage Mentoring? Let us know by email or by completing one of the applications available here or outside the Church office. ERBC’s Marriage Mentoring Ministry is available to ERBC members and to the community.
