Need a mentor?  Marriage Mentors can help!

Whether you’ve been married for 2 months or 2 decades, unaddressed challenges can cause distance and dissatisfaction in your marriage.  A mentor can help you build strong Biblical foundations for marriage and help you work to overcome the day-to-day challenges we all face.  One Community Church has trained and equipped couples to walk alongside another couple or group of couples who are seeking enrichment or restoration in their marriage. The two different mentoring programs offered by the church are found below. 

Mentor 101 – Group Mentoring

This 9-session small group experience is led by Marriage Mentors and helps couples strengthen their marriage connection.  Grounded in the A.R.E. (Accessibility, Responsiveness and Engagement) principles discussed in the book, Created for Connection, couples will be led through Seven Crucial Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.  The cost associated with Mentor 101 is $20 which is the approximate cost of the book.
Mentor 101 lasts for 3 months and is intended for couples who are either new to One Community Church, not connected to a Life Group, or looking for a shorter level of commitment compared to Mentor 201. Couples who attend this program can expect to deepen their relationship with God, experience God’s intent for community, and enrich their marriage through a stronger marital connection.
