Marriage

Marriage

Marriage is a serious, life-long commitment.  We believe that marriage is a beautiful opportunity to not only know and enjoy your spouse deeply, but to know and enjoy God deeply.  Marriage is a profoundly spiritual relationship that is meant to display the character of God. 

God's intention for marriage and sexual expression is a lifelong union between one man and one woman.  Sexual intimacy is only intended for marriage and sexual intimacy outside this protective bond and co-habitation are contrary to God's good design for our humanity.

We want to help couples build healthy relationships and to invest in their marriages, even more than in their weddings.  Couples, no matter where they are in their marriage journey, can benefit from our Marriage Ministry in various ways as follows.

  • Couple whose wedding is being officated by a Tenth pastor and they give us at least 6 month's notice will be matched up with a mentor couple.  We provide them with the Premarital Mentoring Program (space is limited).

  • Couples who are considering engagement or Couples who are not requesting a Tenth Pastor to officiate their wedding:  They can benefit from the Pre-Marriage Workshop.
  • Couple's wedding is being officated by a Tenth pastor but they cannot give us at least 6 month's notice: They can benefit from the Pre-Marriage Workshop. (If they can't attend the Pre-marital Seminar, please register for our Premarital Mentoring Program. They will meet with their officiating pastor to "unpack" their couple's assessment instead of being matched up with a mentor couple.)
  • Married couples: No matter how long you have been married, you are always welcomed to take the Pre-Marriage Workshop (again)! 

All couples are encouraged to also attend the Building Healthy Relationships Workshop hosted by our Healing Ministry.
