Marriage Mentoring is designed to tackle those things that trip up marriages, especially in the early years. Couples often think their issues are unique, and can feel alone in their struggles. Through a series of focused conversations, Marriage Mentoring normalises those struggles and brings couples into community. The result is revitalised relationships, both for the couples mentoring and those being mentored.

"We found renewed hope for our marriage knowing
we weren't alone in our challenges."

How does Marriage Mentoring work?

  • Training: Mentor Couples couples receive effective video training. Both the time (three hours) and cost are minimal.
  • TimelineThe two couples commit to meeting once a month (approximately) for one year, and choose from 14 conversation topics (listed below). Each topic supports a healthy marriage with a conversation guide and a take home project.


What are the benefits?

  • For churches, Mentor Couples are a rich resource who expand the church’s marriage intervention. The long term benefits of investing in younger couples, strengthens their marriages and ultimately alleviates the pressure on pastors to do all marriage enrichment in the congregation. Stronger couples, become stronger parents and families, which eventually strengthens the overall church community.
  • Pastors no longer carry the entire responsibility of marriage intervention/counseling within the congregation.
  • Personal growth for the mentor couple as they share their marriage story is a further benefit we’ve observed, strengthening the marriages of mentors and mentees alike.
