Marriage Ministry

Building a Godly Marriage

Whether you’re thinking of getting married, are a newlywed, or have been married for decades, we want to help you build a strong, God-glorifying marriage. Through equipping classes, mentorship opportunities, and community groups, we seek to help marriages in every stage build a Christ-centered relationship.

Learn more about each of our opportunities below, and reach out if you have any questions!

Re|engage | Lakeline, Brushy Creek and Crystal Falls Campus

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.

New participants are welcome to join us any week. Scroll down to see more information about what a typical Tuesday night looks like.

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. Your journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with one of our pastors, followed by a helpful Couple Assessment that will help you gauge where you are as a couple. 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.

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. 

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.
