Marriage Help

Need Help?

Marriages can hit some pretty bumpy roads. And for some of us, those bumps can feel like canyons. Just know this: there is hope! Studies show that couples who hang in there and stay married are happier than they ever thought possible five years later. The other good news is this: you have others who care about you and your spouse... and desire to help you through these bumps and hurdles. Because your marriage matters to God (and to us!), we have an army of dedicated volunteers at each campus ready to come alongside you, listen to what's going on, and provide some good light - even when things feel very dark. If you're concerned about your marriage, have questions, or just need to talk to someone, please contact one of our Campus Marriage Teams listed below. Someone will get back to you soon:

Help Others

Help Marriages at Your Campus

If you're excited about this initiative and want to volunteer at your campus, please contact your Campus Marriage Team:

Be a Small Group Leader

Small groups are communities of people in the same life-stage who come together to support each other, grow spiritually, and develop lasting relationships. They're a great way to connect folks to God and each other - but we need both new and experienced leaders to host!

To sign up as a leader, click here.

Be a Mentor

For couples who are engaged, newly married, or need some help through a tough season, having another couple in their life to provide biblical guidance, share advice, and listen prayerfully is a priceless advantage. To be a mentor, you don't need to have all the answers (training is provided) - but you do need to have been married for at least five years. To sign up as a mentor, e-mail
