Designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage.

The Marriage Course is for any couple looking to invest in their relationship. The Pre-Marriage Course is for any engaged couple, or those exploring the possibility of marriage, to build a strong foundation for their future together.

Experience The Marriage Course

So far…

What is The Marriage Course?

The Marriage Course and The Pre-Marriage Course act as a bridge between the church and the local community by recognizing the need to go beyond the social, as well as physical, walls of the church to help couples with their relationships. The Marriage Course is designed to be easy for churches to run in-person or online; with episodes that are available to download online, along with training, guides, and journals. The sessions are completely private, with no group work.

What does a Marriage Course Session look like?


Each session begins with couples eating together. This gives guests a chance to unwind and connect before the session’s episode. It also helps to create the atmosphere of a date. If running the course online, encourage the couple to eat together before the start of each session.


The talk with the discussion breaks are around 90 minutes in length. Each episode explores a different topic through real experiences, expert insights, and relevant teaching.

Providing space for couples to have private, intimate conversations is a must for every course. It helps enable couples to engage openly and honestly throughout the session.

The Marriage Course helped me tremendously, moving me away from trying to fix my wife, to listening to her.

Dan (Guest on The Marriage Course)

99% of guests said the course had a positive impact on their relationship.

73% of guests experienced significant improvement in their relationship from the course.

We thought our marriage was pretty great already, but even doing the first session has shown us that there are ways we can make it even better! We can’t wait for the rest of the course!
