If you’ve been to GBC on a Sunday, you’re certainly aware that our congregation consists of lots of young people, especially young families and singles. As a result, there is a special need for marriage-related ministry at a variety of different levels. In an effort to maintain our focus on discipleship in the context of groups, much of what happens in our Marriage Ministry takes place through small groups.

Premarital Mentoring: This involves meeting with a mentor couple for 10 weeks for discipleship leading up to your wedding day. We ask that you have completed or are currently are involved in a Growth Group before signing up for premarital counseling. Contact Mike Maddry to learn more.

Marriage Mondays: Please join us for Marriage Monday where couples at GBC gather to discuss ways to better pursue God’s glory in the context of marriage. A few babysitters are on call to help on these evenings - please sign up for childcare with Terri Langford in advance. Check the main calendar for upcoming dates!

Marriage Enrichment Retreats: This is an opportunity to get out of the city and travel to Chappell Hill to spend time with a small group of couples (5 total) from GBC. On the retreat we will study Biblical marriage, spend time developing communication and connection as a couple, and build community with other married couples. Each retreat spans two weekends (about 6 weeks apart) and covers topics such as covenant, expectations, family of origin, communication and conflict resolution, spiritual leadership and submission, intimacy, forgiveness, and intentionality. Growth in these areas will be accomplished through a combination of pre-requisite work, group discussion, individual and couple reflection, Bible study, as well as practical application. For more information, please contact Annie Higgins.

Weddings: GBC is available for weddings for couples who have completed a Growth Group and pre-marital counseling. For more information contact Amy Lorentzen.
