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.

About re|engage

A better marriage starts here.

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 life change God has brought to their marriages.

Our Spring 2023 semester kicks off on January 31! The semester starts by attending our Open Group Kickoff Sessions on January 31 and February 7 to learn more about re|engage and begin connecting with other married couples. During the kickoff participants will have the opportunity to commit to a Closed Group for the semester. Register below for the Open Group Kickoff and Childcare; registration will be open until January 31.

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:

  • On January 30 and February 7, couples will get to know more about re|engage, including how to get connected to a Closed Group. This is an opportunity to begin working on your marriage and helps us best connect you to a Closed Group.
  • Closed Group | During the Kickoff, participants who want to join a Closed Group and register will be placed in a group. Closed Groups are 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. Once this group starts, it will run until June 20, 2023.

PreMarital Mentoring

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 10 weeks) that concentrate on key areas that will help you as you build your future together.

To get started, please filling out the interest form below.

Interest Form

Important things to consider:

We strongly recommend a 6-month window prior to your wedding day to facilitate mentoring. If it is less than 3 months until your wedding day, we are unable to provide mentoring.

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

Officiating Pastor’s Fee

If you desire a pastor from Hill Country to officiate your ceremony, we do not have a fee for the officiating pastor. Marriage ceremonies are a ministry pastors of the church are honored to perform as part of their responsibilities.

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.
