Support Couple Training
Being a support couple is a fun and rewarding way for couples within the church to get involved in helping build strong marriages inside and outside of the church. Taking interest in another relationship while providing a model for what a healthy marriage looks like can be significant for those exploring marriage.
Requirements: The only requirements for being a support couple are that you have been married for two years and have completed The Marriage Course yourself.
Responsibilities: Commitment to invite a couple going through The Pre-Marriage Course into your home – offering them hospitality, sharing your own person experiences, and facilitating a conversation around the couple survey.
The Couple Survey is an online survey that helps couples highlight issues that are important to discuss before getting married; it also affirms areas of strength in their relationship. It is not a test of compatibility.
Before using the Couple Survey, we recommend that you watch the training videos below and sharing this with your Support Couples as well.
Please note: we are working on updating new Couple Survey training notes and the sample reports so we appreciate your patience as we get those loaded!
