re|engage | All Campuses
Join us virtually!
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. It is a community-driven experience with facilitator couples to help you. It's also a place where 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 the first Tuesday of every MONTH!
Watch these real couples describe their re|engage experiences.

Some Things to know:
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 groups (currently in a virtual format):
- 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 in a virtual format. Once formed, no new couples are added to the Closed Group. Once this group starts, you can expect it to last 4-6 months. If/when you and your spouse decide to join a re|engage closed small group, there is a fee of $25. This fee will contribute to the administratrive cost of books and running the re|engage ministry.

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 2-on-2 mentoring with a trained, seasoned married couple using a biblically based curriculum. Your journey begins by taking a helpful Relationship Assessment that will help gauge where you are as a couple. From there, a mentor couple will lead you through a series of sessions (generally about 8 weeks) that concentrate on key areas that will help you as you build your future together.
To get started, please contact us at [email protected].
Important things to consider:
We strongly recommend 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
If you desire a pastor from HCBC we do not have a set fee for the officiating pastor. Marriage ceremonies are a ministry pastors of the church are honored to perform as part of their responsibilities. However, because the pastor is likely dedicating time away from his family to prepare for and participate in your wedding, an honorarium is customary.
If you have questions about the process or are uncertain about meeting the timeframes prior to your wedding day, we would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your concerns and work with you to seek a biblical solution.
