What Is a Marriage Mentor?
Have you ever thought how you could help younger couples? How can you practically invest in the upcoming generation? Look no further, marriage mentoring is here!
A Marriage Mentor is simply a couple who is a bit further down the path and looks back to help others navigate some of the life challenges they are facing. It's not about being on-call for every crisis or having all of the answers; it's being a listening ear that encourages a couple and helps point them in the right direction. It's about helping a younger couple build their dreams on a lasting foundation that will work. Young couples don't want to connect with someone who has a perfect life ... they want someone who is real, has real shortcomings and faces real life issues but is growing and walking well through those hardships. Couples who fail but who don't give up. Will you be the guides that help a younger couple develop a fruitful marriage and avoid years of painful mistakes and frustration?
How does Marriage Mentoring work?
- Training: Mentor Couples couples receive effective video training. Both the time (three hours) and cost are minimal.
- Timeline: The two couples commit to meeting once a month (approximately) for one year, and choose from 14 conversation topics. Each topic supports a healthy marriage with a conversation guide and a take home project.
