What Couples Say

“We came as individuals, Marriage Enrichment made us a team again.”

“It was a new beginning for us.”

“We came because we thought we needed a new spark, but found we needed a complete overhaul.”

“I was relieved to find out that other couples face the same challenges.”

“We found the love we had misplaced."

”Marriage Enrichment brought us closer to Christ and to each other.”


The guidelines for the ministry have evolved over the period of more than forty years. Their sole purpose is to support the programs. The development has included input from the Marriage Enrichment community (i.e., those working with the programs).  This has helped ensure that a broad base of experience and ideas are included in the process. Most importantly, it is our belief that the Holy Spirit has worked through the people of God in guiding the development of the ministry and the guidelines.
