Set up a Marriage Mentor Centre
We believe the church should be the first point of call for marriages in trouble, which is why we partner with churches to set up marriage mentoring centres to not only help those in need, but also equip already healthy marriages grow even stronger.
Setting up a Marriage Mentor Centre
What does it take to get started?
If you can get at least 10 couples in a room together for 3 hours you have all you need. We also recommend that pastors find a marriage champion in their church to get this going. We provide a coach to help them every step of the way. Every church has couples that could build into younger couples and take the pressure off of the pastor/staff encouraging couples.
How much does it cost?
$50.00 per Mentor couple to attend the Marriage Mentoring training run by FamilyLife. This includes a Marriage Mentor Guide plus a Conversation Guide. (Your Mentee couple would then purchase their own Conversation Guide for $20.)
Who is behind Marriage Mentoring?
The Marriage Mentoring Initiative is brought to you from FamilyLife New Zealand, adapted from FamilyLife Canada. We provide coaching and resources that equip churches to encourage couples in their community.
Is my church the right size for something like this?
If you have one couple that wants to help marriages you are big enough. It is scalable to fit any size church.
