What's it all about?
This ministry is, in essence, a happy, content, more-experienced couple purposefully investing in another couple using Biblical principles to effectively navigate a journey that they have already taken.
The Bible is full of examples: Eli mentored Samuel, Paul mentored Barnabas and Timothy and the greatest example is Jesus mentoring his disciples. Jesus made his mentoring style clear. In Matthew 16: 24-36, He says “If anyone will come after me, he will take up his cross and follow me.”
Paul said in I Corinthians 11:1, “Follow my example as I follow Christ.” Philippians 4:9 also says, “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, put into practice.”
Could you use some marriage mentoring?
We are excited to offer the people of Wellspring Church a Marriage Mentoring relationship opportunity for married couples or engaged to-be-married couples in our congregation. A Marriage Mentor is a more experienced and trained couple equipped and desirous to disciple a couple that may be experiencing life and relationship challenges.
This is not a counseling or therapy relationship. While counseling and therapy have their uses and are certainly appropriate in some circumstances, the Marriage Mentoring ministry is more discipleship-based exclusively using Biblical principles.
God has blessed us with a caring group of volunteers with a wide variety of life experiences that would love to help and serve potential participants.
