Equipping churches with an ongoing strategy for marriage ministry and helping couples build marriages that showcase the grace of God.


What we long to see:


Reduce Crisis Marriage Counseling and Divorce.

Presently, crisis marriage counseling and divorce are major issues in churches and a drain on pastoral time. Grace Marriage provides a pathway to prevent crises and help couples thrive.

Close the Marriage Ministry Gap in Churches.

While children’s and youth ministries are prevalent, churches must not leave the marriage space empty. Where there's only premarital counseling and crisis care, couples lack the tools to grow.

Disciple and Shepherd Marriages.

Couples will not be more intentional with their marriages than the church is with their marriage ministry. We believe it is an integral role of the church to protect and enrich marriages.

Shift Couples from Performance-Based to Grace-Based Marriages.

Building marriages on God’s grace places couples on a solid foundation so they can thrive, even through trials. Marriages are then able to showcase the Gospel to the watching world.

We help your people assess their marriage + get practical next steps.


Couples begin the journey of a grace-based marriage, together.


Committed to the marriage discipleship process in a community of believers.



In the midst of marital drift, our heart is to:

  • Protect and grow marriages in the local church and community.
  • Lessen crisis marriage counseling and divorce.
  • Provide a marriage ministry without it being a drain on the church budget or staff time.
  • Provide a church everything it needs for promotion, implementation and maintenance.
  • Engage couples to put marriage under the grace of Christ and be intentional.
  • Completely change the perception and reality of marriage in our culture.
