About Re|engage

Marriage is a magnificent representation of Christ’s love for His church, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. When two people make a covenant to love and honor one another for the rest of their days, it’s challenging – even for the most seasoned marriage veterans. Fortunately, there’s re|engage.

Re|engage is a program that offers hope to all marriages – whether you’re struggling to get along, feel more distant than ever before, or simply want to grow closer together as husband and wife. You will be placed in a small group with an experienced facilitator couple as well as other couples to work through the curriculum, and you’ll be encouraged by the stories of different married couples who have experienced the victory God offers marriages in the midst of hard times.

What does a typical Tuesday night look like?

Couples from across the spectrum are never alone and engage with one another in this ministry through:

  • Large Group | An opportunity for all couples in all phases of the ministry to pray, and learn together. During this time, you will hear couples publicly share their marriage story and leaders teach principles for marriage growth.

  • Small Group | Couples will then move into a Small Group setting. Different destinations are offered for each stage of the re|engage process. These stages include:

    • Open Group | As couples await being placed into a Closed Group, they will attend Open Group, which offers couples the opportunity to begin working on their marriage. This environment fosters group discussion on different marriage topics while also creating the space to begin sharing each other’s stories. Participants learn the value and ground rules of Small Group.

    • Closed Group | When enough couples are ready to join, and a facilitator couple is ready, a Closed Group is formed with 4-5 participating couples to walk through the 16-lesson curriculum together. Once formed, no new couples are added to the Closed Group.

PreMarital Mentoring | All Campuses

Are you engaged or considering marriage? 

We would love to partner with you as you prepare for a fulfilling marriage. We offer 2on2 mentoring with a trained, seasoned married couple using the Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts (SYMBIS for short) curriculum. Your journey begins by taking a helpful Relationship Assessment called SYMBIS that will help gauge where you are as a couple. Following the completion of the assessment, a consultation with one of our pastors will be arranged to go over the assessment results. From there, a mentor couple will lead you through a series of sessions (generally 6-8 weeks) that concentrate on key areas that will help you as you build your future together.

What does the SYMBIS Assessment do? The assessment provides insights into how your unique personality types mesh and how the pre-marital mentor couple can give you useful tools and advice to coincide with the assessment. This will reveal how your combined personalities can be leveraged for optimal success. The SYMBIS Assessment is robust, personalized, and powerful.

To get started, please contact us at charityorarden@hcbc.com.

Important things to consider:

We strongly reccommend a 6-month window prior to your wedding day to facilitate mentoring.

If you desire a pastor from HCBC to officiate at your wedding, please ensure availability before setting a date. 

Officiating Pastor’s Fee
HCBC does not have a set fee for the officiating pastor. You may consult the officiating pastor to see if he has a set fee, but our suggested honorarium for the pastor is $300.

If for any reason you have questions about the process or are uncertain about meeting the time frames prior to your wedding day, we would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your concerns and, and if needed, work with you to seek a biblical solution.
