Setting Goals For Your Marriage Ministry in the New Year

Setting Goals For Your Marriage Ministry in the New Year

I absolutely admire Aaron. He’s a Hispanic guy who used to be the janitor at his church. Aaron and his wife asked the church leadership if they could start a Bible study for young married couples to help build strong marriages in their congregation. Today, Aaron is a full-time marriage and family ministry pastor—serving that same church with literally hundreds of couples being reached by his ministry. That’s all because he saw a need for a marriage ministry at his church and was bold... Read More

When Married Couples Serve Together

You could say that I grew up in a non-conventional family. Where a lot of families were going on family vacations to the beach, or the mountains, or Disneyland, my family went on mission trips.

Married People Book Study, Week 3
