There is no greater arena to make practical application of our faith life than living in the midst of marriage and family. Grace, forgiveness, communication, loving, serving, leading, deferring – so many ways we are challenged to apply Biblical principles every day. Our Family Life Ministry Pastor Wayne Risher is passionate about equipping spouses and parents to apply truth, employ tools, and process heartily as they navigate marriage.

We're Engaged. What's Next?
A Godly marriage involves the purposeful effort of two people moving toward a healthy union with each other and with Christ. We encourage pre-engaged and engaged couples to enter into relationships that include both individual and couple-focused reflection and growth. Pre-marital counseling can also help equip future husbands and wives to build thriving marriages that reflect God’s goodness.
We're Married. What Can We Do?
Some couples want to go from good to great and come see us for a check-up or check-in appointment. Other couples find themselves in a rough patch and don’t quite know how to move forward. We offer short-term marriage coaching to help you tune-up, get moving in the right direction with healthy processing and tools, and help trouble-shoot problem areas. We do not provide long-term counseling services.
