Learn about

the unique makeup of MarriageStrong and the nine topics that comprise the program

Marriage has great power.

It’s commonly accepted that a life of leading and serving others is hard on marriages and requires sacrifice. Rarely it’s said that leading or serving can actually improve your marriage — or that a strong marriage can strengthen your ability to affect others.

It's time to stop separating marriage from life, particularly a life of leadership and service. They are deeply connected and mutually beneficial.

MarriageStrong helps couples develop valuable relationship skills that help their marriages, while also changing the way they lead and serve others in their families,, places of work, and within the Body of Christ.

MarriageStrong groups are designed to be educational, not therapeutic. The recommended group size — four couples — is ideal to allow couples time to interact and discuss the material. Prior to beginning group sessions, leaders attend a MarriageStrong training seminar.
