Today there is no greater contribution to society than to have strong marriages and healthy families walking out of the church on Sunday and into the culture on Monday. Yet, this is no small task. Some now view marriage as one of the riskiest ventures taken in one’s life. After all, married couples are usually made up of two individuals that are very different from one another–that are now making a decision to attempt to live harmoniously together in a new permanent relationship for life. Frankly, it’s a ridiculous notion without God’s help!
When reality does not match the idealistic aspirations often held about marriage, we want to assist couples to dig in, experience the hard transformational work of becoming more selfless, and then prayerfully experience the fullness of this special relationship designed by God. Then, the further good news is that society benefits many times over from each successful marriage. That’s why the Marriage Ministry at MDPC is committed to encouraging, training and equipping those inside and outside the church to strengthen their own marriages.
