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. If you would like to receive updates from the marriage, you can sign up for the newsletter HERE.
We help prepare pre-married couples, whether seriously dating or engaged, to understand and create a Christ-centered relationship and marriage with biblical wisdom and self-awareness.
We help couples engage in the exciting work of continued and intentional cultivation of a lifelong, Christ-centered marriage.
We would love to partner with you as you prepare for a fulfilling marriage. We offer 2-on-2 mentoring for seriously dating and engaged couples 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.
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.
