Couples

God designed marriage to be an energy-producing relationship in our lives—one in which we mutually support, encourage and uplift one another. There is so much we can learn about ourselves and our mates that can bring greater joy, understanding and deeper connections in our marriages. Our Ministry is here to help you have happier, healthier marriages!

Marriage Mentor Certification Training

  • Saturday, Jun 1, 8:30 am

Calvary Couples Ministry wants to create a powerful network of marriage mentor couples! The Marriage Mentor Academy, offered online by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, is a simple and fun way for couples to learn how to help other couples. It’s the process of having a seasoned and experienced couple (note: nobody said “perfect couple”) come alongside a less experienced couple to guide them along the way.

Saturday, June 1
8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Ministry Training Center
$50/married couple 
(includes course & Chick-Fil-A lunch)

Want to know if you are Marriage Mentor material? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you relatively happy in your marriage?
  • Do you both share a motivation to become trained as Marriage Mentors?
  • Are you able to laugh and learn from your mistakes?
  • Are you invested in growing your own marriage?
  • Are you committed to your spouse?
  • Are you willing to share some of your time to help another couple?

If you answered “yes” to these six questions, you’ve got what it takes! Come learn the 12 skills of effective marriage mentorship and get certified as a mentor. The course is divided into eight 25-minute video sessions with a quiz at the end. 

Pre-registration is required.

8 weekly sessions
Study guides for both the bride and groom-to-be

Designed around interaction, this class features great facilitators, video and group discussion, as well as strong, biblical perspectives.
