Discussion of marriage can be found in nearly any newspaper, talk show or conversation at the local coffee shop. While there are varying opinions on who should be legally married we are currently more concerned with the nearly 50% of marriages ending in divorce in America today. The repercussions of these divorces is incredibly far reaching from the emotional draining of both parties involved to huge financial concerns. If there are children involved the repercussions spread even wider. No one gets a divorce without being hurt in some fashion. Marriage is a relationship that should last a life-time. Marriage relationships involve two people whether that marriage is thriving or dying. With that in mind all of the marriage ministry done through Treasure Chest Ministry is done couple to couple(s).
We offer couple to couple mentoring. This mentoring is for engaged or married couples in every stage of life. Married couples wanting to deepen or refresh their relationship or those who are struggling, all can benefit from mentoring. Marriage mentors are not professional counselors. They are real married couples who have experienced life together and whole-heartedly believe that marriage is a good thing We believe that if a couple is willing to give some time and work with the help of God any marriage can be built up or restored. Each mentor couple has been trained to walk with another married couple through different areas of their life that may need some attention. A tool is used to help identify what areas may need some focused attention. With as little as 4 one and half hour sessions great strides can be made.
In this busy life often married couples just don’t take the time they need to focus on their relationship to keep it vital. One way we have found to do this is to go to a marriage enrichment. Treasure Chest Ministries enrichments are different in that they are team-taught by a married couple. The men are engaged as well as the women as there is a man there giving the man’s perspective. These enrichments vary in length of time determined by their sponsor. They can be a Friday evening and Saturday till mid-afternoon or the entire weekend. As Treasure Chest Ministries focuses on medium to smaller communities generally speaking these enrichments are set up for less than 100 couples. Often they are done in groups of 10-30 couples.
Whether you are a couple who would like mentoring, a church or community leader who would like to have mentors trained or host an enrichment, we would like to serve you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
